One little boy's dream came true when over 4,500 motorcycle enthusiasts came together.
His name is Josiah and he suffers from a birth defect that causes him to stay in his bed 24 hours a day.
One day, Josiah had mentioned that he would love to see and hear a 100 motorcycles drive by his home in Carlsbad, California. Local motorcycle enthusiasts Cartoon Kanarvogel, PJ Byrne and 101.5 KGB-FM on-air personality Clint August, united to created The Josiah Ride which is believed to be the biggest single day ride in San Diego, California to date.
On January 22, 2012, over 4,500 bikers came out and created what the California Highway Patrol said "was the biggest traffic jam they had seen in Southern California in six years." News helicopters flew overhead and local law enforcement helped direct traffic. Nothing was offered to a single person other than helping a young boy's dream come true. Josiah was so happy and it truly was an amazing and historical event. Thank you to everyone who participated! It was a very memorable day.
As of today, Josiah is currently at his home in Carlsbad, California.
