A Gibbons girl is tickled pink after getting a special visit.
Last year, Steve Enns founded a group called Bullying Enns. The initiative gives bullied kids support by offering them motorcycle rides to or from school.
Grade 4 student Paige Rutledge has been bullied recently. Her mom, Tara, pulled her out of the final month of classes after the situation hit a worrisome level.
Tara made a post about the bullying on the Gibbons Community Group Facebook page. She was soon put in contact with the group.
On Tuesday (Jun.6), 25 motorcyclists offered a ride and support.
"I started crying cause it was just so heartwarming that there's people out there that do this. It was truly a blessing," said Tara.
The group took a ride around Gibbons.
"We rode around town, rode by my school and a whole bunch of kids in my school were at the window and their faces were nearly right against it," added Paige.
The joyful mother was bewildered by the experience. She believes it couldn't have come at a better time.
"They gave her hugs. Let her know they're her new friend and they're there for her if she ever needs them," added Tara.
Tara hopes a change of scenery will help Paige in the next school year. She will transfer from Gibbons School to Lillian Schick.
"When I grow up, I want to ride with them," concluded Paige.
