On Thursday the Dunnville Rotary Club organized their weekly meeting at my parents' farm in support of my ride for Huntington's disease. There were more than 50 in attendance including people from the Rotary Club, Lion's Club, the Royal Canadian Legion, and the Huntington Society. Also in attendance was the Hartery family which has been dealing powerfully with Huntington's since their 33 year old daughter was diagnosed with the aggressive juvenile form of the disease about three years ago. My uncle Bob, who has Huntington's, along with the rest of the Glenney side of my family was also there to help with preparations and to sport the great "Trans-Canada Bike Ride" T-shirts my mom had made up for the event.
We had a catered lunch and corn roast followed by a presentation I prepared to share some of the pictures and stories of my ride. At the end I spoke about Huntington's disease and was presented with several generous donations from local businesses and organizations toward the cause.
In total, over $4000 was raised for Huntington's disease. Many thanks to everyone who came out to support the cause!
