A 7,000 km journey in support of Aboriginal youth fitness

1 Year Later

Ok, I’m still around but it’s been quite the year. On June 22 last year, I broke my hip & shoulder while cycling on the Dempster highway in the Yukon. Took my 1st helicopter ride to the Dawson City hospital, then on to the Vancouver hospital for the operation where my wife and I spent our 37th Anniversary on July 1. I owe her big! With my daughter getting married August 1, I had to work on my recovery and proudly walked her (slowly) down the aisle.

In October, we moved back to my old home town of Edmonton. I drove (not cycled) across our beautiful country and have been hard at work with a new position at Royal LePage.

In mid June, I reconnected with Enoch Cree Nation about a youth bike program and bike park. It was so much fun chatting with the kids. I think just about everyone put up their hands to say they were interested and the questions were great: “Can I get a pink bike?” Lol “Absolutely” or “I don’t need training wheels anymore”. Lots of work over the summer and it’s all coming together!

Stay tuned!

Cheers, Don
