Victor Davis Memorial Ride

As a volunteer with Trillium, I was invited to be part of the Victor Davis Memorial Ride. Here's a part of the invitation, I couldn't explain it better myself...

"Victor Davis was an Olympic swimmer who represented and won medals for Canada at two separate Olympic games. He was also an organ and tissue donor. This summer his brother, Greg Davis, will be cycling from Guelph to Quebec City to promote the importance of registration of organ and tissue donation consent in memory of his late brother, Victor Davis.
The Victor Davis Memorial Ride will celebrate transplant recipients participating at the Canadian Transplant Games in Quebec City, August 9-14, 2010. Greg will be stopping at several hospitals along his cycling journey to increase awareness for organ and tissue donation."

It was a pleasure to meet Greg Davis and other organ recipients at this event. I think I was the only one actually waiting for an organ.... Not uncommon.

Here's a few nice pics of Greg and the group riding with him.

And of course, my supporters!!!

It's a great thing that Greg is doing. As a future recipient, I thank you Greg. Your hard work is making a difference.
