My Message

Dear Family and friends,

For the last three years I have teamed up with the Toronto Rehab Foundation and started the successful Rocket Ride for Rehab spin-a-thon that has raised close to $600,000 for Toronto Rehab stroke program and the Rocket Family Upper Extremity Clinic. This was accomplished in part due to your help so thank you.

This year, we are continuing the ride on October 13th, 2018 again at Nathan Philips Square!

If you are willing and able to ride for one hour anytime between 10:00 and 2:00 please email me at If you cannot ride and wish to donate, please check out my personal page:

Toronto rehab was my home for 10 weeks 8 ½ years ago. When I got there I had trouble sitting in a chair, could not walk, or even dress myself. I was alive and could talk but could not do much more than that without assistance. Toronto Rehab taught me how to get my life back. I am forever grateful to Toronto Rehab and all their staff for all their support and kindness along my journey. My journey is still not over as I still have a lot of living to do and I have this ability because Toronto Rehab helped me achieve it. Please help me do this for others.

Each week I meet with stroke survivors at Toronto Rehab and talk to them about their experiences. The biggest concern they all have is “what does my future look like?”  By showing up each week, I show them what it could look like if they work hard and believe in themselves.

Every year, companies around the world are developing new technologies to help improve arm and hand function. The Rocket Family Upper Extremity Clinic researches and studies these technologies and offers new therapies to stroke patients. With our help, they can expand the clinic to offer more therapy and technologies to more patients. It’s quite exciting!

Please consider either registering to ride or sponsoring me. I appreciate whatever you are able to give.

Thank you
