Community supports Roanoke County mom's birthday surprise for son

Posted: Updated:

A Roanoke County mom's efforts to give her son with special needs a birthday surprise generates a lot of support from our community.

On Friday we told you about Erica and Isiah Atkinson.

She created a Facebook page for people to wish her son a Happy 15th Birthday after he struggled to make friends.

A viewer saw the story, so he and his bike riding dog drove from Augusta County to Roanoke this weekend to wish Isiah a happy birthday in person.

Larry Groah and "Harley the Biker Dog" like to make appearances at different events to make people smile, so Harley rode his bike Saturday to meet Isiah and show him some love.

They met up in a nearby park.
