Sydney Sidote was just 11-years-old when she lost her life in a dirt bike accident.

The North Collins girl was riding her bike with her cousin on New Oregon Road, where she lived. Friends say this was Sydney. This is what she loved. Riding that dirt bike was one of her biggest passions.

On Saturday, July 7th, the young girl was hit by an oncoming vehicle and was flown by Mercy Flight to the hospital; sadly, Sydney did not survive.

Now – family and friends are raising funds to help the Sidote family – posting in part on a GoFundMe Page,

“Sydney was a beautiful girl with a huge heart. She enjoyed spending time with her family and friends when not out riding her dirt bike. Snowboarding, cheerleading, and playing airsoft with her brothers were also some of her favorite activities. Sydney is already immensely missed by many and will never be forgotten. Any donations for the family would be greatly appreciated to help with the expenses of funeral costs.”


If you would like to donate to this family, here is a link to the GoFundme Page.
