My Message

There’s an element of vulnerability in accepting help, much less even asking for that help. After sustaining an injury in a recent bike crash this realization came to me. I needed help, and help was offered. From the people who got me off of the bike path and wiped blood off my face, to the stranger who called 911,  to my neighbour who picked me up from the hospital and all the friends and family who offered their help, brought food (and alcohol – truth be told), sent flowers and kind words of support – accepting this help required acknowledgment of my own vulnerability. That is significant.

One of the reasons why PWA is so special is that I think they understand the vulnerability that comes with needing help, with asking for help and with accepting that help. The Friends for Life Bike Rally allows PWA to have the funds to provide help in a dignified, humane and compassionate manner.

This year – despite my recent injuries(see attached photo), I still hope to complete the one day ride to Port Hope (110km) and continue along to Montreal supporting riders and crew with Dr Jason Bonar and ten amazing CMCC interns. Please consider supporting our journey.
