I'm from Germany and I moved to Canada - Vernon 2.5 years ago.

I am going on a bike ride across Canada to raise funds and awareness for The Sunshine Foundation of Canada.

My trip will involve me riding a bike beginning at mile zero in Victoria, British Columbia and crossing Canada to the coast
of Newfoundland in St. Johns. It will take 3 1/2 month, from May through the end of August.
I will have a motorhome driven by two volunteers following and helping me as I progress across this beautiful country.

The Sunshine Foundation is planning to hold events across the country during my bike ride. I will stop at homes and talk some of the children and their family whose wishes were fulfilled by The Sunshine Foundation. I will learn what the Sunshine Foundation did for them, what experiences they had and how their lives were changed. At the end of this bike ride, a friend of mine will make a documentary of the interviews, the events, the trip and The Sunshine Foundation.
I will be on the road for almost 9,000 km, and I will sell each km for $10, my goal is to raise $90,000 for this foundation.

I want to do this for The Sunshine Foundation because my younger brother has a developmental disability from birth and also suffers from epilepsy.
I understand the daily challenge for families with a child or adult who needs extra help every single day. I feel we forget them quite often because we don't see them all the time.

With this trip I want to bring more awareness to people across the country for people with special needs.

This bike ride is also a great way to give something back to the country, especially as an immigrant. This Sunshine Ride will be my way to say thank you to Canada. I am glad to have the opportunity to start a new part of my life here in this beautiful country by helping others in need.

With your donation you will help me make this happen.
