One local non-profit has been determined to create independence and opportunities for disabled children in the Mid-State.

The "Trykes Under the Tree" event was held Friday thanks to Music City Trykes.

The Mid-State chapter has provided adaptive bikes for local disabled children who otherwise would never have the opportunity to experience the thrill of riding a bike.

April Roddy was there with her daughter Bailey on Friday. Bailey suffered a traumatic brain injury and received a bike in 2015.

This year they wanted to give back.

"Being able to give a child that may have some type of disability a way to quote, “be normal,” function like any other child, is amazing,” Roddy said. “Because before this happened I didn't know anything about brain injury.”

To date, Music City Trykes has raised funds for, built, and provided over 325 adaptive bikes.
