Born to ride (trikes)

The St. Francis de Sales School preschool class recently held its seventh annual Trike-a-Thon for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The riders wrapped up a week of learning all about bike safety by hitting the road (parking lot) for a good cause. Along for the ride were plenty of parents, as well as Schoolcraft County Sheriff W. John Norrington and the department’s “Safety Pup”. At top center, one young rider sneaks a smile at another while racing around the impromptu track. At bottom left, riders navigate a turn of the track. Each turn featured a different “street” name. At bottom right, Father Glenn Theoret performs the ceremonial “blessing of the bikes” before the riders embark on their journey.
