ANDOVER, Mass. — An adult tricycle stolen from a man with Down Syndrome will be replaced, according to FOX25.
The trike was owned by 37-year-old Jeffrey Croteau, who rode it with his father every Sunday. On Friday morning, it was stolen out of his father’s truck.
“I was upset,” Jeff’s mother, Pat Croteau, told FOX25. “I was really mad that somebody would take his bike, because that’s all he has. He loves it.”
After friends and family shared the story on social media, the nonprofit group Liam Nation decided to help out, purchasing a new trike for Jeff.
Liam Nation was founded as an annual fundraiser on behalf of Liam Knyff, who has Down Syndrome and Autism. Currently, Liam Nation works to improve the lives of people with physical and cognitive challenges through funding and support.
