Parkdale Parents Primary Prevention Program
When your slice of sanity is stolen
Most of us look at a bike and think, ‘mode of transportation’. Others might think, ‘exercise tool’. Some of us will think of nothing but that one biker who gave us the bird after cutting him off – look sharp motorists, bikers are doing their part to save the planet!
For one dad with the Parkdale Parents Primary Prevention Program, his bike is a way of picking up groceries for his family (wife and 4 young kids), a bit of exercise and a vehicle of sanity – allowing a small window of escape from a very busy, loud and isolated apartment unit. Why don’t kids have indoor voices?
Last week all that changed when his bike was stolen from outside of his building. Now food shopping and capturing a slice of peace, just got a heck of a lot harder.
How you can help
We’re polling funds to get dad a new bike. If you’re in the Parkdale / Roncy / High Park area and you’ve got a used men’s bike in good condition collecting dust, we’ll take it! Drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll sort out the pick-up . If we find ourselves with a used gem, any funds will go towards groceries, games and art supplies for the kids, and a good bike lock!
