Family Gives Bicycles to Riegelwood Kids

RIEGELWOOD -- Inspired by the Riegelwood tornado, a family from South Carolina brought a two-wheeled Christmas to the kids who survived the storm.

More than 30 bikes were given away Saturday to the children affected by the storm.

They tested out their new rides in the parking lot of the Riegelwood Baptist Church.

The family raised money for the truck full of bikes from businesses in their hometown of Lourdes, South Carolina.

Parents say it was great to see the kids' faces light up after dealing with so much heartache since the storm.

The donors say seeing those smiles made it all worthwhile.
