I set up this page because of the tremendous response I got from my facebook post yesterday. Our 9th grade student had his bike stolen from school. He was leaving school at the end of the day and went to get his bike from the rack right outside our building. I makes me so mad that someone would steal it right from our campus. I know we can't have our eyes on everything all the time, but I feel especially bad because he had it locked up, and I want kids to feel secure about bringing their bikes to school. 

He was clearly very proud of his bike and he was able to name the brand and color of every part on it. He had this picture of the bike on his iPod. When I saw the picture of him in his cycling jersey with this custom built bike, I realized that this kid really loved his bike. We contacted school police right away, but it's doubtful he'll get it back. He was so upset. 

Lots of people wanted a way to help, so I decided to set up this fundraiser. Any funds collected will be used buy a gift certificate to a local bike shop to help him rebuild his bike.

Also, anyone local who has connections in the bike community, I am also open to accepting donations of bike parts instead of money. Just let me know what connections you have and we can figure out how to get the parts to our school.  Click on the email link above if you'd like to donate something other than money.

If we end up collecting more money and/or parts for than we need, I will use the extra funds for the bike club that I have been promising the kids I would start for them.
