AMIkids Big Cypress and Bikes for Tykes gave their first set of refurbished bikes to students in need as a part of an event at the school. Cartas passed the bike along to her mother because she said she doesn't like riding them. 'I know she's been wanting one for awhile and when I won, I wanted her to pick one out,' said Cartas.
