"I got a guardian angel watching over me".

"People would kick me and call me names", he said."I really don't tell people".

He's been working to raise awareness about bullying and teen suicide, so he made a decision to organize a special ride for Phil on his first day of middle school.

She said Phil told her about his thoughts of suicide.

"I was fire engine-red mad", Tammy Mick said. She said the bullying was so bad, her son considered suicide.

Organiser Brent Warfield of KDZ Motorcycle Sales & Service told The Journal Gazette that about 50 bikers from Columbia City, Fort Wayne and other cities gathered at Richards Restaurant in Auburn, Indiana for the special motorcade.


Tammy Mick, Phil's mother, said her son had been bullied to the degree that he felt worthless and would self-deprecating, calling himself stupid. He said he recruited a "bunch of big-hearted bikers" to take the family to breakfast and escort Phil to school. She suspected that he was being bullied when he came home from school one day with bumps and bruises. Which is what happened with 10-year old Phil, who admitted that people at his school were targeting him because of his weight. Phil got his 1st ride on a motorcycle to school.

"I recommend this for any kid who's being bullied", she said.

Warfield says Phil was glowing on the back of his bike - the first time the boy had ridden a motorcycle - and if any bullies want to mess with him, Phil knows where to turn.

"We're coming together to say enough is enough". "They are not alone", Warfield told FOX59.

"Standing up against bullying - we need more of that", Mr Vince said. "We want to help".

Taking a stand against bullying is important for Warfield because he said it can sometimes lead to teen suicide.
