Steven Is Turning 13 and He Loves Motorcycles

Fruita Middle School student Steven has reached an important milestone, and his friends and family, along with over a hundred riders, have put together a special birthday event. There's no spoiler alert here. For the record, this event is well-known, so I'm not exactly letting the cat out of the bag.

What Began as a Birthday Party Has Turned Into an All-Out Event

Originally, this was going to be a typical 13th birthday party. Invitations were sent out to other students concluding their 7th Grade adventures at Fruita Middle School. In time, though, this birthday party turned into something entirely different.

Steven is autistic and this is the first year he’s asked for a big party because he wants to celebrate becoming a teenager. So I’m asking that anyone who would like to join us for cake, swimming and pizza (you don’t have to bring a gift) please join us Saturday 2:00-5:00. It would mean the world to our sweet boy!!! - Melinda Amberson via Fruita , Colorado message board
