Surprises get me every time.
This California teen gets the biggest one of a lifetime, when local police officers give him a brand new bike.
19-year-old Jordan Duncan has been walking roughly four hours a day, several times a week, since his car broke down this past May.
Honestly, “I don’t want to feel like I’m a burden to people so I take the initiative to handle myself and where I need to go from point A to point B,” he said.
Even though Duncan’s trek is made up of hills, he stated that, “I got used to the walk. It’s not hard to walk.”
The young man also added that walking allowed him to save money for a car and college, the local Fox station, KTVU reported.
But, Corporal Kirk Keffer felt a tug at his heart and decided to change the two legged journey into a two wheel one after speaking to Duncan about his ambitions, which include becoming an officer with the California Highway Patrol.
In order to do so, the Corporal brought the young boy’s long walks up to the Benice Police Officers Association.
The results equated to a bike for Duncan.
On the subject, Keffer said, “There’s not a lot of 18 year olds out there that have this dedication we just wanted to make sure he know how much I appreciated what he’s doing.”
In response, Duncan said “You know, not all officers are bad.”
Duncan-we just want to add that we appreciate you too!
