Bikers give boy extra special escort for his first day of school

Sean Maehrer was excited about starting high school on Tuesday. But his family friends had a few concerns, according to Fox 8.

Sean has Down syndrome and friends were worried the Pennsylvania teen would be bullied at school.

They decided to put the word out on Facebook. In just two days, the post caught the attention of several motorcycle clubs in the area, like the Nam Knights. The motorcyclists, who are known for their charity rides and supporting veterans, decided to put the idea into action give the boy the ride of a lifetime in order to make sure people knew not to mess with him.

Dozens of motorcyclists met Sean near his home in Allentown on Tuesday to give him an extra special escort to school. Their goal was to make Sean the coolest kid in school, and boy, did they deliver. Not only did they give the boy an escort, but they also gave Sean his own jacket and customized motorcycle helmet.

Sean's parents could barely speak because they were so overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity of the motorcyclists' actions. They did, however, manage to thank the community for making Sean's first day of school one he will never forget.

We're sure no one is going to bother Sean now.
