“Motorcycles at the Miz”: Bikers gather to boost patient morale at Misericordia

Today in Winnipeg, at 6:00 pm, a heart-warming event is taking place at the Misericordia Health Centre. Bikers from across the city and beyond bring their flashiest and most deluxe bikes to the Misericordia to encourage patients and staff alike, and it has become quite a popular event.

The event was created by Grant Morrison, a former member of the Winnipeg Police Service. He came up with this idea to boost the patient’s moral state.

All of the Misericordia Health Centre patients await the event, and anyone can participate. All they need to do is to bring their motorcycle. The event will be an hour-long, with drinks and snacks for onlookers and patients.

Attendees are asked to remain masked at all times because many patients are at high risk for COVID. All Winnipeggers who come to this event should participate in bringing joy to those tired patients.

The event has not been held in Winnipeg for some time because of the pandemic, so the patients feel very excited to witness the showcase again. Many motorcycle riders are happy to show off their cool motorcycles and experiences.

“I’m quite excited, to be honest; I’m not going there to show off my bike, nor am I a patient, but I’m expecting to see some really bright smiles, which is something I’m so ready to witness, and I believe this event is going to be successful!” said a volunteer in this event.

Moreover, after asking a motorcycle owner and a participant in this event, he said “It will be my first time attending an event such as this one, but I’m kind of excited, since I enjoy being with other people and so on, and I’m pretty sure the patients will love it!”

Indeed this event is very heart-warming; giving hope to people with hardships is the best thing anyone can do to another person. All Winnipeggers get together to enjoy a good time together and make some happy memories.
