People who know me know that I am a nerd who loves tech. And you've likely followed the adventures of my wife and I to places like the east coast and Eastern Ontario to ride our bikes. But what you may not know, though I have touched on it in the past is that I have an eye disease called Keratoconus which without special contact lenses makes it difficult for me to see. In the case of my wife, her grandfather was legally blind. So eye disease is something that hits home for both of us.
Right now, over 1 million Canadians 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 we are participating in Cycle for Sight and raising money for the Foundation Fighting Blindness (FFB). We'll both be doing a 50K ride, and we'd like as many of you as possible to help us to raise money for this worthy cause. You can help to provide hope by donating today. I ask you to do your part to help to hasten the end of eye diseases that affect so many.
We sincerely thank you in advance for any contribution you can make to our ride and the FFB! Alternatively, if you prefer to sponsor us with a cheque, please download the pledge sheet and submit your donation to Cycle for Sight.
