Vision is something that we often take for granted, yet right now, over 1 million Canadians, like me, who are living with blinding eye diseases. There are currently no cures for these diseases and as vision fades, so too can hope.
That is why I am participating in Cycle for Sight and raising money for the Fighting Blindness Canada (FBC). Riding in Cycle for Sight is another way for me to take action and not sit idly around waiting for something to happen.
I truly believe that the research funded by the FBC (some of which, is being done by Canadian researchers in Toronto) will lead to treatments and cures for vision loss.
The journey that I will be embarking on with Cycle for Sight is only a small trek compared to some of the day-to-day challenges of living with sight loss. Help me provide hope by donating today at the link below.
I have a goal and with your help, I know I can reach it.
I sincerely thank you in advance for any contribution you can make to my ride and the FBC! Alternatively, if you prefer to sponsor me with a cheque, please download the pledge sheet and submit your donation to Cycle for Sight.
