Assist Mark in covering his expenses as he cycles on his own from Halifax to Toronto, in support of Canadian democracy.
CYCLING TO FUND CANADIAN DEMOCRACY
It’s a time of change in our country and the world. At 61 I have decided to get more directly involved.
There are cracks growing in our society. Polarization. Disinformation. Undisguised racism. I want to help our experts have more resources to deal with these threats.
So I will be riding my bike to raise funds for Canadian anti-racism and anti-hate. Together they are bulwarks of democracy. This journey is from Halifax to my hometown of Toronto, about 2,000 km, starting June 27 2022 to about the third week of August..
Along the way I’ll be interviewing people respectfully on their thoughts about our country’s democracy. What does it mean to them? How can we strengthen and improve it? Watch for daily clips and updates on my Blog.
Any donation you make to my personal campaign will help pay for my ride. This includes my preparation fees, bike upgrades, food, lodging, airfare and repair costs .
I’ll be trying to stay in people’s homes as much as possible, using the sites WarmShowers.org and CouchSurfing.com. If you’re on my route and can offer a night’s rest, I’d be much obliged.
