Jim Oman was the 2021 Make a Wish winner of St. Joseph’s Villa. He was nominated by the staff on his floor to have his wish of going for one more ride in a motorcycle come true. Community volunteer Pat Severin heard about Jim’s wish through social media and readily offered to take Jim out for a spin.

As part of the wish he visited the Harley Davidson Shop to prepare for his big day where he was spoiled. On the day of his ride the Freedom Riders Motorcycle Association of Northern Ontario, Inc. (Sudbury) as well as Sudbury Bike Nights joined in with Jim, Pat and members of the GSPS Traffic Management Unit for a ride through Sudbury. They finished their ride at A&W, where A&W owners Suzanne and Paul Gaudreault treated everyone to a cold root beer and a special treat for Jim.

The staff of St. Joseph’s Villa, as well as Jim himself were humbled by the enormous support the community of Sudbury offered to make these two days extra special for Jim.

Ride Hard, Live Free Jim!
