Students and staff at Newton Parrish Elementary raised money for March of Dimes via a Bicycle Rodeo on Saturday, April 15. The rodeo included a safety inspection to make sure bikes were good to ride, a safety talk led by OHS cycling students and around 10 bike activities where students can sharpen their riding skills.
“I wanted to encourage the Parent Teacher Organization to take on a fundraising event that promotes health and exercise for our students and parents. The bike rodeo is the perfect fit,” said Steve Bratcher, Newton Parrish principal.
“The timing of the event couldn’t be better with summer just around the corner. We want to make sure that students’ bikes are in good shape and that they know how to ride their bikes in the safest way possible,” said Katy Harrison, Newton Parrish teacher.
Over $200 was raised for the March of Dimes.
