Hello dear reader!
First, I want to apologize for the rate of publication of articles on this blog that has recently slowed down: the correction of my future publication takes me a lot of time, sorry!
Also, I want to respond to a comment from a reader: I did not write that “living with Ataxia” was a genetic horror in my article about writing, but that it was one in itself – the nuance is important; I would rather say that “living with Ataxia” is a challenge at all times!
This week, I’m going to talk to you about the Ataxia Challenge I’m attending, in Chambly, Quebec, on Saturday, August 24, 2019. This event will be organized by the Ataxia Canada Foundation and will be followed by a friendly dinner with animation. musical!
This “challenge” consists of a cyclo-sportive, for the more athletic, or a recreational walk, for others, in order to raise funds for the foundation and thus help it to achieve its objectives. Objectives that are to fund (completely or in partnership) the many research on Ataxia – which I told you in a previous article – and financially support its members across Canada.
Personally, this is the fourth year in a row that I have participated and the third as captain of my own team, PSG: https://www.canadahelps.org/en/charities/ataxia-canada/p2p/defiataxie2019/team/ psg / With this team, named after the initials of my last name and is a nod to the French football club, it allows me to participate more actively in the collective effort; I know that my only contribution will not change much, but if everyone puts his own, it starts immediately to be more interesting as a result!
So I do my part, make yours and join us on the 24th! Registration is $ 20 per adult:
The more we are crazy, the more we laugh as the saying goes adage!
Hope to see you there ! … For our tenth meeting, I think to talk about the importance of friendship for a disabled, for me … An importance that goes with a need for solitude at times, at least at home! I may not be alone in my case, who knows!
See you !
