THE STORY:

It is estimated that 48,610 men and women (27,880 men and 20,730 women) will be diagnosed with and 23,720 men and women will die of leukemia in 2013.

Leukemia is also something that is close to my heart and since I am now recovering from 2 broken legs it is my hope that people will come together and learn the disease doesnt have to continue on. We are getting closer to a cure that doesnt invole chemotheraphy. See below:

Please hope by donating any amount you can. Every dollar helps and every $1, $2, $5, $10 or $20 donation will be a very helpful to the cause

Who I am
My name is Kyle Paraskevopoulos I am a 23 year old individual who has always been very active and had a keen interest in fitness. 2 Years ago I was in a car accident that broke both of my legs and put me in a wheelchair for a short period of time. Very recently my bone healed correctly. But now with my legs almost fully recovered and a new lease on life I am taking on a Triathlon that will take place in Rondeau provincial park on Sunday, August 18. This run will also be in honour of my late father who passed away from Leukemia when I was 12 years old. It is my hope that this inspires youth to keep active despite your ailments and live a healthy lifestyle which in turn could have a profound affect on decreasing cancer risks for these individuals on the whole.
