Craig Gives Back

Craig Aucoin and Llyd McLean live in Pictou, Nova Scotia and plan to embark on an 85-day, 8,200 kilometer journey across the country on a tandem bicycle in order to raise funds and awareness for three separate charities. Craig was born with an eye condition called retinitis pigmentosa, which at the age of fifteen affected his ability to participate in sports and everyday activities, leaving him blind. With the help of charities like Canadian Guide Dogs for the Blind, CNIB (seeing beyond the vision loss), and YMCA Strong Kids Campaign, Canadians, regardless of personal challenges can lead a rewarding and exciting life.
