The students of Northern Collegiate recently held their annual charity tricycle race to raise money for Community Living Sarnia-Lambton. Homerooms were asked to raise $25 to participate in this fun event. The race consisted of four people per homeroom riding a tricycle for 400 meters. The teams traded off every 100 meters, allowing the whole team to ride.

Each class that participated had a chance to go against other classes in their grade. The second round of races had the victors of each grade compete against one another. The final race involved Northern’s staff.

The bikes came in all shapes in sizes. From the tiniest of tricycles to the large full-size tricycles, participants had a good laugh and a good run. Some students decided to make a theme with their tricycle. Classes decorated theirs to the theme of Star Wars and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, while others took a different and dressed up like characters from the game, Guess Who.

Overall, Northern had a fun morning of entertainment, while raising money for a good cause.
