Today Gaagagekiizhik GaKinoo’amaawadiiwi’gamig Gakinoo’amaawasowin School, received 37 bicycles with helmets from True North Aid. The bikes came in various models and sizes from small child to youth for all ages to use and enjoy. These bicycles will provide an opportunity for growth, learning and well-being for the students.
Bimose Tribal Council would like to express our appreciation to Kenneth Smid and Kim Sigurdson – True North Aid and Adam Illman – Ontario Provincial Police for your support and personal commitment along with our staff who donated their time and expertise in putting the bikes together.
This partnership will benefit our students by supporting them in a healthy lifestyle while having fun.
