A 14-year-old boy started a non-profit organization to bring bicycles to children in Rocky Point, Mexico.

Anthony Totri personally collects, repairs and delivers donated bikes to Rocky Point to give local kids something they wouldn't be able to have otherwise.

Totri used his nickname "Shorty" to come up with the name for his non-profit, Shorty's Bike Foundation. Verrado Leadership members and Rocky Point's Mision Amor church have a partnership with Totri to help him with logistics in Mexico.

The bikes are a reward to children who regularly attend school classes and church services.

So far, Totri has delivered 50 bikes to Rocky Point's local children. His goal is to donate 50 more during the holiday season.

FOX 10's Kristy Siefkin reports.
