Never walk alone is the message Connor Gage's mom is working to spread.

Gage, from Little Falls, was a freshman at the University of Vermont when he was found dead after a night out with friends.

He was walking home alone when he passed out.

Friends and family cycled across Burlington in his honor. They wore t-shirts with the message "never walk alone.”

It’s a message his mom plans to spread through talks with high school and college students.

"Sticking together, leaving with the people you came with, not separating, as menial as that may seem, it's a very important thing,” said Dorothy Connor, Gage’t mother.

On every bike was a ribbon to represent Little Falls, and a ribbon to represent the new life he started at UVM.
