Spirit Rider Shows Strength and Endurance
The Spirit Ride Campaign continues but Don Patterson’s mode of transportation has certainly changed in recent weeks; from bicycle, to helicopter, to wheelchair, to a single crutch.
La campagne Spirit Ride se poursuit, mais les modes de transport de Don Patterson ont certainement changé au cours des dernières semaines : une bicyclette, un hélicoptère, un fauteuil roulant et une béquille.

The Spirit Ride Campaign Continues
Don Patterson’s 7,000 km Spirit Ride in support of Aboriginal youth health and fitness was unfortunately cut short due to a random and unpredictable accident early in his journey. On the third day of his trip, Monday, June 22, Don took a tumble off his bike and broke his shoulder and hip. He was airlifted to Whitehorse and then to Vancouver; and after a successful surgery, he is home resting and determined to have a quick recovery while keeping the momentum of the Spirit Ride campaign going.
“Being a cautious rider, I’ve been fortunate to never have a serious mishap in some 50 years on the bike. I love to ride! […] Yes, the latest accident is a setback but I am going to turn this into a positive. I’m determined to get out the message on the importance of physical activity for our Aboriginal youth, raise funds for GEN7 and YMCA and develop sustainable local sports programs. If we all come together, we can do it,” wrote Don via his blog (http://www.spiritride.ca/) .
In honour of Don and in helping to spread his message of the importance of Aboriginal youth health and fitness, a Winnipeg Boxing and Mixed Martial Arts club is planning a celebratory fundraiser. The Winnipeg Elite Boxing and MMA Academy (http://www.eliteboxingmma.com
Half of all proceeds raised from this event will go to Motivate Canada’s GEN7 Aboriginal Role Model Program (http://www.motivatecanada.ca/
