I am going cycle from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada to Los Angeles, California, USA to raise money and awareness for cancer, stroke, addiction and depression.
I am raising money and awareness for these four causes as I have experienced each one first hand.
I have selected Winnipeg to start my ride as this is my birthplace and business base. I’m a dual citizen and Los Angeles is my other home and business base as well.
I will also be stopping en route to deliver motivational talks from personal experience to various groups.
I’ve already completed phase one of training; 28 classes in 30 days of Moksha (hot) Yoga.
All money raised will be divided equally between the selected organizations. Any amount is greatly appreciated. If you are not able or interested in donating a monetary amount, your support via notes of encouragement and/or passing this information along to interested is just as important and greatly appreciated as well.PLEASE NOTE: NONE OF THE MONEY RAISED IS GOING TO ME NOR THE TREK.
If you prefer to donate directly to any or all of these causes you may do so by clicking the links provided to their websites. At this point in time, The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation in Toronto is on board. The other organizations will be announced, with clickable links provided, shortly.
All money raised in my name for Princess Margaret is for Head & Neck Cancer (as this is the type of cancer I had).
Princess Margaret has set up a page for me on their website and added me to their events calendar.
The trek commences September 2013.
