CCAA Graduate Student Cycling Across Canada!

dennis choiDennis Choi is a former CCAA research assistant and soon to be CCAA graduate student in the neuromuscular lab.  Dennis is riding a bike across Canada to increase awareness of ride safety to pedestrians, cyclists, and motorists alike.  The ride is in honour of his friend Blane Morden who lost his life in a tragic bike/car accident.

This memorial ride began in Jarvis, Ontario – hometown to both Choi and Morden. Dennis made his way to the east coast. Upon arrival in the East Coast Dennis boarded a plane destined for Vancouver. From the West Coast, he will continue on his route back to Jarvis, Ontario. Dennis is currently in Saskatchewan.  Along the route Choi plans to connect with cycling clubs and organizations to gain media attention and support. He is encouraging friends and supporters to join him for a leg of the ride!

Dennis plans to collect funds in memory of his friend for the Right To Play organization. Right To Play is an incredible organization whose mission is to “To improve the lives of children in some of the most disadvantaged areas of the world by using the power of sport and play for development, health and peace”. Dennis loves this charity, he believes that their mission and values are in sync with the way Blane lived his life. 

You can follow Dennis on his journey by visiting his blog.  We look forward to Dennis returning to London to tell us about his incredible journey and to begin his Masters graduate work in the Fall.
