Christmas came a little early Thursday for a Twin Cities boy with cerebral palsy.

Six-year-old Noah received the gift of mobility. Marcus Theatres and Variety the Children's Charity worked together to buy Noah an adaptive bicycle.

Noah has limited mobility so it's impossible for him to ride a standard bicycle. This will now give Noah a chance to keep up. "We all love riding a bike and we have great memories of riding a bicycle with our friends when we were a child. And we feel that all kids deserve that, even if they aren't able to ride a standard two-wheel bike," said Jessica Bauer with Variety the Children's Charity.

Noah's mother hopes the bike will enable him to one day ride a standard bike.
