Hundreds of bikers in Sydney, N.S. are boosting a bullied 10-year-old boy by taking him under their wing and showing him that he has more brothers than he realized.
Harbourside Elementary Grade 4 student Xander Rose says all of his schoolmates except his younger brother and one friend pick on him.He said,“People make bad comments about my weight, my look, my clothes.”
Katie Laybolt, Rose’s mother reached out to a non-profit U.S. children’s advocacy group called Defenders of Children. The group responded to her message for help and the Fredericton, N.B. chapter put out an open call for local bikers to do a ride to support Rose, who is an avid fan of motorcycles.
The call to action was a success and on Wednesday,June 21 hundreds of bikers are expected to pick up Rose at his home and take him to school.
The kind bikers plan to dismount their motorcycles once they arrive at the school on Wednesday and form two lines on either side of Rose to personally walk him to the front door
