In Indiana, a sixth-grade boy was so distraught from people bullying him, he contemplated suicide.
After keeping it a secret from his family for over a year, he finally revealed the truth about the abuse he faced at school to his mother — and that’s when Brent Warfield of KDZ Motorcycle Sales & Service was contacted.
Immediately, he got with his gang and gave Phil Mick the ride of his life.
Tuesday, more than 50 bikers escorted Mick to his first day at a new school. Phil told WANE that he has been bullied the last two years because of his weight.
“People would kick me and call me names,” he said. ”I really don’t tell people.”
His mother, Tammy, suspected her son was being bullied after he came home one day with bumps and bruises, despite him not saying anything.
After Phil told his mother what was happening, she turned to Brent Warfield of KDZ Motorcycle Sales & Service for help.
Warfield and a group of his biker friends work to raise awareness about bullying and teen suicide.
A group of more than 50 bikers met Phil and his parents for breakfast before heading to DeKalb Middle School Tuesday morning. The group said a prayer for Phil before escorting him to the school.
Tammy said Phil now comes home from school smiling — a change from the years past.
“Phil comes home every day smiling and he did not do that last year,” Tammy told WANE.
