Although we have been planning this for well over a year and a half, it has only just started feeling “real”. Sometimes it hits me – I’m cycling across Canada! – and I am overcome with a flood of feelings. Fear for one, as I wonder what I’ve gotten myself into. Adrenaline for another, as the concerts are planned, the charities contacted, and the fundraising tickets sold. But more than anything else, I feel honoured – to be part of the tribute to Hillary’s life, to dedicate two and a half months to a cause I feel passionate about, and to see first-hand the strength and dedication that a family can nurture despite a devastating loss.
We will be charting our journey on this blog over the coming months, and I hope you will follow along. Let the adventure begin!
