A mom’s simple request for a bike thief

If the thief can just leave it where he/she found it, my son would really appreciate it.

My 17-year-old son is going into Grade 12 this year and happens to be a Leader newspaper delivery boy now for more than seven years.

He works tirelessly for the community helping out at school, being a City of Surrey volunteer as well as putting in countless hours at our church and the soup kitchen run by the church.

He has been such a leader at Fleetwood Park Secondary that he was picked to attend a leadership conference by the administrators and he will be now able to attend that conference this week.

Every Wednesdays, on his days off (summer break, winter break, spring break, etc.) he will get up early, ride his bike to church at 7:45 a.m., go to mass and then help cook and serve at the Saint Matthews Soup Kitchen. Recently, he did the same. But his mode of transportation, his bike, was stolen at the church while he was inside helping out.

Now he does not have a mode of transportation and has to rely on rides or walk. We just want the bike back for him and if the thief can just leave it where he/she found it, my son Brandon would really appreciate it.
