The Molter family started riding the Best Buddies Challenge because programs like this were not in schools when their daughter Jodie Rose was there and her family wishes they would have been!  There was teasing and being made fun of.  Jodie was excluded from activites such as concerts and other school events because teachers did not understand INCLUSION.  

THIS IS WHY WE RIDE!
Jodie Rose is showing others that SHE CAN do anything she sets her mind to!
