This is the third year Paradowski has given out the bikes.

"Hopefully, we can keep this going and make it a community-wide effort," he said. "To see these kids and to see their parents and see Mom get really excited and some of them even crying and have to sit down, it's incredible and it's a lot of fun."

The number of nominations was so overwhelming that Paradowski is considering giving out even more bikes next year.
