Matt performed amazing bike tricks that got teachers and students cheering.  He climbed a wall like Spiderman.  He performed the fastest bike spins in the world.  And he even jumped over some teachers and the principal on his bike!  Matt told us about how it took him weeks to learn his first bike trick and then years to learn his most dangerous tricks.  His message was NEVER GIVE UP!  

Matt also shared about how he felt when he was picked on and how it made a big difference when other children helped him.  It felt like they were his superheroes for standing up for him!  He told students that they can be someone’s batman just by being a friend and looking out for each other!  

Thank you to Matt Wilhelm for being a role model and showing Riverdale Elementary all of your cool stunts and tricks.
