Disabled 6th grader volunteers for bike race
PHILADELPHIA - June 3, 2012 (WPVI) -- One volunteer at the annual Philadelphia bike race was 6th grader, Fuxia Caudill.
The disabled youngster has a condition that requires frequent treatment at Shriner's Hospital for Children in Philadelphia.
The Caudill family travels all the way from Nashville, Tennessee with financial help from the Shriner's.
Fuxia's mom says when he saw a poster for the bike race at the hospital and he was instantly inspired.
"He said, 'I want to do that. What can I do?'" said Anna Caudill.
"I want to help Shriner's because they helped me," Fuxia said.
Fuxia's mom says when they adopted him from China a few years ago they thought he would never be able to walk. But thanks to the Shriner's team he's now able to race!
