Boy, 3, Donates New Bike to Cancer Patients

What little boy wouldn’t want a fancy bike? It’s almost summer, and those two wheels could be used to take him all over the neighborhood — with proper supervision, of course. Jase Teague, 3, from Scottsboro, was living the dream when he won a bike from Western Sizzlin, according to WAAY.

Instead of taking the bike out to ride the sidewalks with his buddies, Jase decided to do something different — he was going to give it away.

Relay for Life had been advertising in Scottsboro, and Jase had asked what it was all about. His father, Jason, explained the concept, and they moved on with their lives. Relay for Life raises money and awareness for people who have cancer.

Then, when Jase won the bike, he thought back to that conversation and decided that the cancer patients needed it more than he did. The timing couldn’t have been more perfect, either. The Relay for Life of Jackson County’s theme this year was Cruisin’ for a Cure, celebrating all forms of transportation as they get the word out about treatment and prevention.

Jase donated the bike, making his parents proud and the rest of us a little teary-eyed.

Keep in mind, Jase is just three. We can’t wait to see what he does when he grows up.
