Cycling and the Tour de Guelph 2021

As an avid cyclist, and after hearing about the Tour de Guelph, I was interested in helping the Guelph General Hospital, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Tour de Guelph is a cycling event in support of Guelph General Hospital and local Rotary projects through the Rotary Clubs of Guelph South and Guelph Trillium. The Tour de Guelph has helped fund Interventional Radiology Equipment, IV Pumps, an Ultrasound Machine, Respiratory Ventilators, the Hospital’s new CT Scanner, a Centralized Cardiac Monitoring system, and Blood Pressure Monitors for the hospital’s Day Surgery Unit. This was also a great way for me to look for new cycling routes and prepare for a long ride before my "tour" day, allowing me to get to know more riding areas.

In 2019, I decided to support the Team Trees effort by contributing 1000 trees.

My input stemmed from working to connect impoverished communities to basic online resources as a stepping stone for improvement.

P.S. The shirt I'm wearing is from The North Face Bottle Source Collection, which "uses recycled bottles sourced from three national parks [to help create the clothing] and gives $1 from each “bottle source” product to the National Park Foundation to support sustainability projects in our national parks".

Ice Climbing

In early 2020, I began ice climbing with my friend James in Ottawa, Ontario. This was after I had spent the last year or so really dedicating myself to gym climbing and bouldering. Though I still consider myself an amateur in both sports (especially ice climbing and outdoor rock climbing), I have tons of fun with both. Ice climbing is especially fun to me because of the bonus winter hiking that comes with it.
