PELHAM GARDENS -

Special needs children got the chance to improve their coordination and motor skills at the annual Trike-A-Thon held at the New York Institute for Special Education.

About 120 preschoolers took part in Friday's event.

The Bronx school specializes in programs for students who are blind, visually impaired as well as emotionally and developmentally delayed.

The event also helped raised money for St. Jude's Children's Hospital.

Last year the Trike-A-Thon raised more than a thousand dollars for childhood cancer.
