I’m not sure if you remember my story (REM, May 2008), but I tried riding a motorcycle across Canada, in the middle of winter, in an effort to bring awareness and some donation for research for a condition called ‘interstitial cystitis’.

You may also recall that my effort came to an abrupt end at 30 degrees below zero on some ‘black ice’ near Winnipeg when I became hypothermic. The result was several broken bones and a lot of pain…which seems to amplify when you’re over 60 years old.

Well, I wanted to finish what I started …. So feeling sufficiently healed from my broken bones…and damaged pride…. I was able to climb back on the horse that bucked me, and make it to my destination – St. John’s, Nfld.

We were able to raise about $10,000, which was administered by the Vancouver General and UBC Hospitals to be directed toward research for a cause and cure for this debilitating ailment. However, as you will note from the photo, I was also trying to get some good PR for our industry (Realtors Care).

I was operating an Internet site at ‘ridingforacure.net’ but it has just lapsed and I see someone else has picked it up. We did get several hundred hits on this site and many encouraging comments on the blog and at the end of the day I am confident that we were able to ‘make a positive difference’ for many who suffer from this condition.

I was hoping that you could find a little space in the upcoming edition of REM so that I could put a ‘positive end’ to my tragic wipe out last year.
