Well here is your chance! On May 10th, OSS is participating in the Heart and Stroke Big Bike Ride. Anyone who has done this event in previous years will tell you how much fun it is. Interested participants will spend the next few weeks fundraising and then will complete a 20-minute bike ride through Couchiching Park on a bicycle built for 30. There is no cycling experience necessary, and you don't have to be an athlete to participate (last year another team had a 100-year-old woman ride the bike... seriously... that means you can do it too!). See Mrs. Munro in room 112 if you are interested in joining this super fun event that benefits a great cause. Staff and students alike can participate.
