HUNTINGTON, W.Va. (AP) - Marshall University's School of Kinesiology is holding a camp to teach people with disabilities how to ride a two-wheel bicycle.

The Lose the Training Wheels Camp is being conducted through Friday at Huntington High School.

The fourth annual camp for participants at least 8 years old is co-sponsored by the Paoli, Pennsylvania-based nonprofit group iCan Shine.

Marshall says in a news release that the charity's staff members travel the country conducting the camps and have an average success rate of more than 80 percent.
