Bikers Rally for Sherwood Student Battling Bullies

Anti-Bully Rally Escorts Alex, 8, to Class

SHERWOOD, Ark. - Leather covered the crowd, and Harleys filled the parking lot.

Dozens of bikers invaded Sherwood on Monday. They came from all over for their new friend, 8-year-old Alex Bruorton.

Alex suffers from 'Cloves' syndrome. It's a condition that affects his facial features. He's recently become a target for harsh bullying.

"He became physically sick because of it," Nichole, Alex's mom, says.

"And. I didn't realize how bad it was."

Nichole says Alex has undergone 19 procedures. 

"As a mom, it's so hard to watch your kids and see total strangers point and laugh," Nichole says.

After Nichole's friend posted Alex's story on Facebook, plans to offer support shifted into high gear.

"We're bigger and scarier than their abuser," Moose says. 

Moose serves as vice-president of the Three Rivers BACA chapter. BACA stands for Bikers Against Child Abuse.

"So when they see we're on their side, their abuser kind of fades off and they're not worried about their abuser anymore." 

Engines roared behind Alex, following him from Sherwood Forest to Sherwood Elementary. It came completed with a police escort.

The event served as a trip to class that Alex won't ever forget. His mom became emotional expressing her gratitude.

"Thank you," Nichole says.

"You're making a difference in this kid's life."
