Steve O’Brien is an accomplished athlete who has embarked on a cross Canada tour to encourage youth to finish their education. O’Brien has numerous medals in track. O’Biren decided to start the Steve O’Brien Foundation to assist and support local athletes, organizations and youth programs. O’Brien began his cross Canada tour in Vancouver, British Columbia on April 12, 2015. He plans to travel by alternating between walking, running, bike, roller blades, skateboard, snow shoe, cross country skis, scooter, wheel chair and parabike. O’Brien visited the Nipisihkopahk Schools and gave them each a relay stick. The students were challenged to relay the stick and submit the amount of kilometers they had completed, this could be done in any way from running to skateboarding to swimming. The Nation was also given a relay stick and we invite staff and community members who want to participate in the relay to join us on Friday May 29th at the track behind the HBMC.
