Big Brother Mariano & Little Brother David
Match Date: March 30, 2019
Mariano likes to ride his bike on a weekly basis which has sparked an interest in David. This summer they were able to participate in the “Owl Bike Ride” where they rode their bikes for an hour and a half on a summer night. Mariano said, “Even though it was a long, tough ride, David was able to complete the route.” Mariano was very impressed when David told him he wanted to do the 17-mile route starting at Omaha’s riverfront through Midtown, Dundee and Aksarben, finishing up back downtown Omaha. But their favorite part was being able to raise funds and awareness for adults with disabilities while having fun. One of their goals for this year is for David to do better in school and get more involved. Mariano’s support and influence have helped Genaro improve his grades and become a better athlete.
