So 2 awesome bronies in Canada who go by Davin Mckee and David DeWolfe are going to be cycling across Canada this summer, starting in Vancouver in June, to raise money and awareness for the devastating children’s disease cystic fibrosis! This endeavor, sponsored in part by Ridley cycles, Aviva, and MoKa Apparel  is quite the undertaking, and since their goal is to raise $30,000 C.D before the start of the ride, they could really use our support! So if any of you wonderful people the brony community (looking at you Canadian bronies) really want to make a difference against Cystic Fibrosis, here’s your chance to donate and get involved. Here’s the best part too: All of your proceeds go directly to the Cystic Fibrosis Canada foundation, meaning the the highest levels of science can be achieved by donating!
Anyway, if you would like to find out more about this bike ride, feel free to look over further details and relevant links in the next section. Enjoy!
They are both very athletic young men whose lives and hearts have been touched by the sometimes heartwarming and tragic tribulations of children struggling with cystic fibrosis (CF). Davin, who has worked in the healthcare profession, had witnessed the courage of a six-year-old girl who died with CF. David, a piano teacher, was deeply inspired by the exuberance for life of a seven-year-old student of his who had CF. Around that time, a close family friend of David’s died with CF. This child, too, was only six years of age.
These experiences along with the knowledge of how medical advancements have greatly improved the prognosis for children with CF in recent years (In the 50s, few children with CF reached primary school, but now many live into their 30s and 40s.) has led them to want to help in some way. They have witnessed the devastation of this disease first hand, but they also know the hope that improved treatment offers. Their goal is to spread awareness of this hope and raise funds for continued research and better treatment.
This is an Inspirational clip of a those who have been crippled by CF but yet still chooses to life to the fullest. For example the young boy featured can run a six minute mile, which would even make Rainbow Dash proud.
