Fraternity Surprises Boy with Special Needs Bike

http://www.wowt.com/home/headlines/F...1&device=phone

Quote:
Jackson's family had entered him in to win a raffle for a special needs bike in March, but he didn't make the cut.

Then, his family, friends, and teacher started planning a fundraiser to get him one anyway, until they were surprised by the generosity of the ATO fraternity. ATO paid for it after hearing about Jackson.

Jackson and his parents are overwhelmed by the support.

"The ATO fraternity didn't even hold a fundraiser for Jackson's cause. The members just chipped in the funds as soon as they heard about his case."

Large Rifton Tricycle

The quote from the link above is $2,022.00 for what looks like a similar bike.
