Young Girl's Legacy, Bike Safety
Two years after Gainesville Mom Ayana Archer lost her six year old daughter Ja'Niyah Irving, she says her life's purpose has changed.
She is now focused on helping parents, and their kids, understand that bicycle accidents can happen to anyone.
She knows first hand, her daughter Ja'Niyah was killed in her neighborhood.
Now instead of focusing on pain, Ayana and her family are giving back to the same community who helped them through their toughest days.
They are part of an educational outreach effort that teaches kids about bike safety.
But their outreach does not stop their, the family is also collecting can goods to be donated to kids in need throughout Alachua County.
If you would like to make a donation in Ja'Niyah's honor, non-perishable items can be dropped off at Metcalf Elementary School in Northeast Gainesville.
