My Message

Wow !!!  Here we are in year #4 of the Bike to the Moon fundraiser to raise awareness and funds for Polycystic Kidney Disease research.

When I married into the Cousens family I was well aware of the fact that I was now part of a PKD family, some of whom had the gene that would have them be affected by this disease. PKD is one of the most common life-threatening genetic diseases affecting approximately 66,000 Canadians and 12.5 million people worldwide. It equally affects men, women and children – regardless of age, race, geography or ethnic origin. Laura's father and two uncles have died of the disease.

However we feel very fortunate to have as our nephrologist Dr. York Pei, a world leader in the research and treatment of PKD. The funds raised will directly support critical Canadian PKD research within the Hereditary Kidney Disease Program at Toronto General Hospital led by Dr. Pei. Even in the four years that our "Premier Cru" bike team has been riding to raise money for PKD research, there have been very encouraging new treatments and proceedures to change the course of this disease. With your help, and your donation we can look forward to a time when no one will have to suffer the full effects of PKD.

The Bike to the Moon is the PKD Foundation of Canada's  fundraising event. We hit $25,000 last year and I would love to see us double that to $50,000 this year!!

Our "Cru" will be doing a 162 km /100 mile Niagara ride again this year. We always have a great time riding for a great cause and the after party is fun too!. So everyone  ... Ride safe, Donate today and collectively we will Bike 384,000 kilometers to the Moon to bring us to the ultimate finish line: A cure for PKD!
