Charity foundation sees Tiano, 7, ride new bike with brother and close friend

RIDING a bicycle with his brother was a lifelong dream realised yesterday by a boy, aged seven, who has a lifethreatening illness.

Thanks to the Reach for a Dream Foundation, Tiano Maart was thrilled to receive a brand new Avalanche BMX – with training wheels – at the bowl and skate park at Kings Beach.

He also received protective gear and a toy car from the foundation.

Adding to the excitement, his brother Sergio, 8, and friend Jadewin Jordaan, 9, also received new bicycles.
