GearUp4CF 2013 - Mike Hamilton in Rossland, BC

This interview with Mike Hamilton was done on DAY 5 as we were mentally preparing for DAY 6 and a massive climb up to the Kootenay Pass Summit. In an earlier video with Mike, he talked about having cystic fibrosis and in this one, he explains how he is keeping himself healthy on the ride. Cystic fibrosis is such a complex disease and it affects the whole body but certainly for GearUp4CF, Mike has to be particularly concerned with lung function and avoiding a lung infection. These are daily concerns for people with CF. It is truly amazing to me that Mike is doing this ride, and doing so well. Awe-inspiring!

I’ve said this before but I’m doing this ride because I felt moved to do more for cystic fibrosis after doing our documentary,
LACE BITE. Not only are my thoughts with all of the people living with cystic fibrosis, those lost because of the disease, and all the many friends and family affected...but I’m always thinking about the Longest Game 4 CF players. Those 40 women who dug so deep to finish that game. Because of my work hours, I’m often tired and kind of used to it. However, the exhaustion I feel daily and having to get up each day and get back on the saddle to attempt yet another mountain summit and another long distance... The players in LACE BITE did not have the luxury of a full night’s sleep...not once in those 10 days. I once again, salute the LG4CF players and what they did for cystic fibrosis.

I am so very close to my fundraising goal and I’m so grateful to all who have supported me. If you’re able, please support
my ride. Or if you’d prefer, here’s the link to Mike’s ride. All funds go to Cystic Fibrosis Canada and you will receive a tax receipt.
