Why doesn’t anyone 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 or visit www.msbiketour.com.

WUSC’s up?
Unsure if the world is round? Wondering what the hell globalization means? Then you should get off your consumer ass and get some awareness.

The World University Service of Canada at Western will be putting on a symposium about awareness of globalization in the University Community Centre atrium, said Mariana Boukailo, WUSC VP-political events and awareness, adding the event will be held on Monday, Mar. 29 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m..

The symposium will also feature several guest speakers, including Western political science professors Nigmendra Narain, Adam Harmes and Marta Dyczok and CBC Newsworld’s Jim Reed, Boulkailo added. “[Reed]’s going to be talking about international justice, global poverty — he’s got 40 years of experience as a journalist,” she said.
