Cycle for Sight - Virtual !! 

Well, we are certainly living in interesting times !!   And my poor tandem bike is still dismantled and stored in my back room...   Its killing me to not be able to get out and ride like the wind...  but you can’t ride a tandem bike with social distancing....

But Fighting Blindness Canada still needs our help - and their researchers still need our support.   And life will go on after COVID-19 is just a crazy memory. 

Cycle for Sight has organised a Virtual event for this year.   On Sat June 20th, I’ll be riding my stationary bicycle in my basement with Mike Porter’s Positive Edge guided spin classes.   I don’t promise I will ride 100 km in my basement but I will get my heart rate up ! 

Please sponsor me to help raise money for vision research.   Its a crazy year and if you can’t sponsor me this year, I completely understand, but if you can sponsor me, its still the great cause it always was.  

You can click on the following link to sponsor me and donate to Fighting Blindness Canada 

https://secure.e2rm.com/registrant/FundraisingPage.aspx?registrationID=4631945&langPref=en-CA&Referrer=https://www.google.ca/

As you know,  I have Retinitis Pigmentosa (RP) and have a significant visual impairment as a result.   Fighting Blindness Canada (FBC) is the largest non-governmental funder of vision research in Canada.   My parents were involved with FBC when it first began in the 60’s as the RP Foundation.   The Duff family has seen the FBC grow and mature to the impressive funding organization that it is today.

Vision loss is an increasing public health problem with increasing rates of diabetes and diabetic retinopathy and increasing rates of Macular Degeneration.  The Foundation Fighting blindness provides research money for scientists who are expanding the bounds of our understanding of the basic science involved in vision.   There is also much research in translating the basic science into potential treatments.   There is a great deal of momentum in the field and your support will help to keep this momentum going – even in a pandemic.

I am hoping you will sponsor me for my basement cycle !

Thanks and keep safe !
