Inspirational Bikers Pick Up Boy Being Bullied at School

Occurred on May 3, 2019 / Irwin, Pennsylvania, USA

Info from Licensor: "I moved here with my two children Bella and Zeke from New York 11 months ago for a new beginning and to be closer to my father. My son Zeke had been getting bullied in school all year for being 'different' without me knowing. On April 26, 2019, the school had called me with the most horrific news I had ever heard. They told me my son had tried to choke himself in the classroom and that he stated he wanted to die. I rushed to the school to find out what was going on and when I spoke with my son he told me he has no friends and he doesn't want to live anymore. I then scheduled a meeting with the principal and teachers and later that evening after much hesitation, I decided to create a post on Facebook in a group that I am in for the area in which I live hoping to reach the parents of the children in my son's class. I had indicated that my son attempted to harm himself due to the lack of friends he has made since moving here and that as parents we need to teach our children kindness. I was then contacted by a member of K-Dogs Kidz whose mission is to stop bullying, who offered to organize a group of bikers to arrive at my son's school to pick him up in front of his peers to show them how 'cool' he really is. I agreed because I too thought this would be a really wonderful experience for him and just maybe it will make a difference. That day changed my son's life. Not only did he have the time of his life but he hasn't been bullied since."
