NMORA powers up high school trip with $500 donation

On Monday, Dec. 3 two representatives from the Northern Manitoba Off Road Association (NMORA) dropped by R.D. Parker Collegiate to present a pair of Grade 12 students, Aaron Haase and Louis Aube, with a cheque for $500.

According to NMORA president Dennis Foley, Haase, Aube and other students from this power mechanics class, including their parents, earned this money after volunteering their time at the 2018 mud bog event in September.

“They did all the work at our concessions during our mud bogs,” he said. “They donated time both on the Saturday and Sunday and were absolutely phenomenal. They worked hard and they even helped out with other aspects of the races.”

Foley went on to say that this money will be used to fund the students’ upcoming trip to Germany.

While NMORA used to hand out these donations to local groups like Thompson Trailbreakers, Foley said they decided to mix things up a couple years ago and further engage with local youth that are interested in industrial arts.

“These are the guys that are building trucks that are going to be mud racing in the future, so it just makes sense.”
