The Marymount Community has come together to try to help a student recover a stolen bicycle that belonged to his recently deceased father. Just two months after his father died of a heart attack, Marymount student Andrew Giardino discovered that his father’s bicycle that he rode during the Redondo Beach Triathlon had been stolen from his family’s garage. Andrew was planning to ride his father’s yellow Specialized Allez bike in next year’s triathlon in honor of his father.
President Michael Brophy, on behalf of the employees and students of the University, has offered a $1,000 reward for the return of a bicycle belonging to Marymount student and Enrollment Division student worker Andrew Giardino. Should anyone know of the bicycle’s whereabouts they are to contact Detective Thomas Baron of the LAPD, Harbor Division, at 310-726-7845. The reward will be paid when the bicycle is returned to Andrew. To learn more about Andrew’s story link to the article in the Daily Breeze.
