Bike ride will benefit Oxford leadership programs

The third annual Oxford Ride for Leadership will take place Saturday, Nov.17. The opportunity to enjoy a great bicycle ride in the beauty of autumn will benefit Oxford College.   

Bike enthusiasts everywhere are invited to join the Oxford faculty, staff and students at 9 a.m. on the Oxford Quad. The participation fee is $25. Riders can choose a 15-mile or 33-mile loop, both of which take a route through the historic back roads of Newton County.

The event is the brainchild of a group of bike enthusiasts from the Oxford faculty and staff.  In 2010 the Ride for Leadership was initiated as a fun way to bond the Oxford community, while at the same time raising awareness and funds for leadership programs at Oxford. 

As Emory University's distinctive freshman/sophomore college, Oxford provides unique, early opportunities for student leadership through such programs as Leadership Oxford, ExCEL and many other programs.

"We use the term 'leadership' broadly at Oxford," says Joe Moon, dean for campus life. "A leader is someone who holds a position of influence and responsibility. However, we believe that all students are potential leaders who lead from within groups—not merely from the top.  Successful student leaders are change agents—people who work effectively with others to achieve positive change."

Register to ride or contact Pete Sherrard, assistant director of athletics, for more information.
