Alexandria ON – On April 14, 2011, six (6) members from the SD&G OPP Detachment entered a team in a fundraising event at the Glengarry District High School (GDHS) in Alexandria.

The event, organized by school teacher Rebecca MacKay, is entitled “Inside Ride” and consists of team members each riding a bicycle on a stationary platform for ten (10) minutes. All proceeds of the event go to help with those stricken with childhood cancer. At the conclusion, the team with the most distance traveled (monitored by a mounted odometer) is declared the winner.

.

With over 35 teams of students and staff participating, the GDHS gym was filled to capacity. With high pace music playing and teams adorned in a variety of costumes, the intensity level was at a premium and a great time was had by all.

In the end, over $10,000 was raised for this worthy cause. SD&G OPP was proud to have been a partner and congratulate everyone at GDHS for their efforts!
