CHESTER, Md. — The Kent Island community is making a difference for one boy and his family.

Andrew Luis is a 16-year-old high school student at Kent Island High School.

The Preston’s March for Energy organization provides children with special needs opportunities to get out, exercise and be a kid.

Andrew has down syndrome and he received a brand new custom-built adaptive bike, Tuesday morning from the organization.

“So overwhelmed actually, we're so excited for him and I’m so honored that he was chosen to be the recipient of this bike. I'm thankful that Safeway and the Preston’s March organization for making this happen,” said Andrew’s mom, Katrina Arion.

This past fall, the county finished the new extension of the Kent Island trail and Andrew can soon enjoy a good workout.
