With all the charity rides out there, why am I participating in Cycle for Sight?
Because I believe that the research funded by the Foundation Fighting Blindness will lead to cures for degenerative blindness.
Because I find it unacceptable to have no answer for patients who ask me "what can I do about my RP?" or any of the other hereditary progressive degenerative eye diseases.
Because vision is usually taken for granted but having an incurable progressive eye disease is profoundly life altering.
Because I am inspired by other riders, some who are partially-sighted, who have decided to take action and not sit idly around waiting for something to happen.
The 150km journey that I will be embarking on with Cycle for Sight is 50% farther than I have ever cycled in one day in my life, yet is only a small trek compared to those who live with vision loss every day. Help me provide hope by making a donation today. I sincerely thank you in advance for any contribution you can make to my ride and the Foundation!
