Paying it Forward…. One Bike at a Time

When 9-year-old Atticus Seng’s bike was stolen from a rack at his elementary school’s campus this past October, the last thing he thought was that it would happen for a second time — or that a group of teens would come the rescue.

In the surprise of his life, the Fresno, Calif. resident’s luck took an unexpected turn when he was presented by Fresno High School students with a brand new mountain bike. According to ABC 30 hearing about Seng’s bad luck, students went door-to-door of classrooms raising $360 to purchase an identical bike of the one that was originally snatched.
