My Message

I'm back! After a year when schedule conflicts kept me out of the Ride, followed by one in which I couldn't ride because of a cycling injury, I'm happy to be back participating, and raising funds again for the Philip Aziz Centre. PAC provides both compassionate in-home support to people of all ages, and loving hospice-based care at Emily's House, supporting families as their child dies or is given respite care to give their family a much-needed break.

With 'pivot' being one of the words of 2020, thanks to COVID-20, PAC joined forces with our local hospital, Michael Garron, to assist them with their adult palliative care program, in addition to continuing to care for children and their families. They continued to provide the excellent care they are known for until late in the spring, when the hospital was again able to resume their palliative care services. Supported by both the hospital and the community (hand-made PPE was made in quantity by many talented folks in my end of the city!), teamwork  and community connection won the day.

In another 'pivot', the ride this year will be virtual. Since we have all of September to ride, we are being challenged to ride 400km through the month, rather than 100km one morning! My legs are certainly willing and able - we'll see how my time-table co-operates!

With so many things changed this year, it's definitely provided an opportunity to reflect on all that is meaningful in life, and for which I am grateful, not the least of which is being fit and healthy, with strong connections in my life...even if the hugs are (momentarily) few.

I am equally grateful for all who support me financially and/or by being the emotional wind at my back. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
