have trampoline fundraisers?
Bicycles are the second most fun
way to get in shape, after the giant trampoline.
The Campus Community Police Service is inviting students
to join Team Western in the annual MS Bike Tour, which
will take place July 24 and 25, said CCPS director Elgin
Austen, adding that all funds raised will go to research
and services for multiple sclerosis sufferers.
“[The event] will raise money and awareness of MS research,” Austen
said. “We have been supporting [the bike tour] for several
years — this is the first organized Western team approach.”
Austen explained that the tour will begin at Grand Bend and
take the country roads to Western, where participants will
spend the night at Saugeen-Maitland Hall. The next day cyclists
will take a different route back to Grand Bend, he said.
Those interested in participating can call 661-3300 for information
