Things are looking “up” and “over”-whelming with this story from “down-under!” Keira Evans loves her son Zane, and Zane loves motorcycles, especially Harley Davidsons. Zane suffers from cerebral palsy and is confined to a wheelchair. Recently he was celebrating his 13th birthday and his mother sent out an interesting request through Facebook.
“Does anybody have a super loud Harley or motorbike and is free tomorrow around lunch time? It’s our big guys 13th birthday tomorrow and boy is he in love with motorbikes. The louder the better! It would make his absolute day if you could pop by McDonald’s Eaton around 12:40 to give us a wave and a bit of a rev,” Keira posted.
Would you believe that 100 strangers turned up with their motorcycles to this McDonalds in Bunbury, Australia?
It was a heartwarming display for this wonderful family and excited young man. They came by to wish Zane well, some brought gifts that included a motorcycle helmet and a Harley T-shirt. Then the crowd began an impromptu rendition of “Happy Birthday.”
Zane’s mother, who was in tears, said that he was “stoked.” Keira thanked the community for such an impressive turnout. “I don’t know any other 13-year-olds that get to celebrate their birthdays like that. He’ll be remembering this for a long time,” she said.
