DaySun's Day of Giving

DaySun's Day of Giving

Posted: Updated:

Minot families gathered at Roosevelt Park yesterday to remember DaySun Gross, who was killed in a drunk driving accident in 2002.

DaySun's uncle, Bob Gross, has been donating bikes and winter coats to the less fortunate citizens of Minot since the death of his nephew.

This was the 10th year the event was held, and those in attendance say that it appears to grow every year.

It may sound like a giveaway, but the reason for it, is to teach kids about the importance of safe driving.

(David Etier, Friend of Bob Gross) "He doesn't do this as a giveaway. He does this as a remembrance and an awareness of what drinking and driving can do."

Bicycles, helmets, winter jackets and backpacks were donated to the cause this year.

A friend of the Gross families says that seeing the community coming together for such a big reason like this, only gets better and better.

David Etier, Friend of Bob Gross) "To know that people care for somebody they don't know, it's just amazing to see the kids. And now, tomorrow, we're going to see kids riding bicycles that probably wouldn't have had that opportunity."
