ROSEBURG, Ore. -- Professional bicycle riders were doing dangerous tricks Tuesday at South Umpqua High School as part of a BMX presentation with a positive message.
The National Guard teamed up with BMX riders using tricks to promote the message: "Always do the right thing."
It seemed to work at South Umpqua High School as students watched in awe as the professional riders soared through the air.
"It's a whole lot better, that's for sure, instead of sitting in a classroom so, a lot more fun," said South Umpqua student Broch O'Sullivan.
"The message is definitely to stay positive," says Nick Marshall with Oregon Army national Guard, "to be able to stay healthy and to focus on your school and to focus on graduating and becoming positive productive people of society."
Any school interested in booking the presentation can contact the Oregon National Guard.
