Roger J. Barrett founded the Ride for Christian.
Christian’s uncle, David J. Barrett MD, provided the foundation financially to get the idea off the ground. Indeed, Dr. Barrett’s act of kindness brought the Ride for Christian to reality. With his help, we were able to create, introduce and promote the RIDE FOR CHRISTIAN website.
The event is indeed a one-of-a-kind opportunity to share with William’s children, their family along with the community the joy of cycling while raising funds for the much needed genetic research at SickKids. The aim is that the RIDE FOR CHRISTIAN will grow into one of Ontario’s premiere cycling events.
“After realizing that all children are children of God, I acknowledge that every child is special and unique, and brings with them extraordinary gifts. Although having a child with a disability may be filled with challenges, ups and downs as well as disappointment, however, when I see the incredible joy Christian has for life it makes all the struggles and all the pain worth enduring. Thus, partnering with SickKids we hope to create a build a better future for all children with unique needs”
