WOONSOCKET – When Suze Kirwan’s family hit a rough patch a few years ago, her boys found a smooth way out on skateboards and trick-bikes.

“When I realized how important each sport was to my boys, that’s how it happened,” says Kirwan. “Being able to get on a skateboard or a BMX bicycle and just go, it really helped them.”
