West Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - After a five-year-old's bike was stolen in West Fargo, his father wanted to send a message that this isn't right.

So, he called the Froggy 99 morning show to spread the word. In a matter of hours, listeners from all over the F-M area pitched in enough money to buy Bryce a brand new bike and a helmet to match.

He was a little shy in front of the camera, but his cousin took it for a spin. Bryce's father says he didn't see it coming.

Mike Balstad, Father: "I never, never dreamed or expected to have a new bike and helmet for my son. It was amazing."

The family said they're thankfully to whoever helped buy the new bike.
