BENEFITING: DAVIS PHINNEY FOUNDATION

EVENT: i25 Kia Copper Triangle

EVENT DATE: Aug 05, 2017

John Paul Lederach

THE STORY:

Nearly nine years ago Wendy was diagnosed with Parkinsons Disease.  During that first year of confusion our beacon of light beamed out from the Davis Phinney Foundation.  Wendy and Angie first met Davis at an event in Boulder and vividly remember the time he took to talk, give encouragement, and more importantly point us all toward resources that made a difference for this challenging journey.  Within the year, we signed up for the Copper Triangle --  though to be honest we had no notion of what it meant to climb Freemont Pass or the West side of Vail Mountain.  But this summer event has become a rallying point for our wider family and this year for the first Wendy's Crew will include more than ten riders.  78 miles over 3 mountain passes  in 1 day:  Pain and joy all wrapped up at altitude!


Most importantly, the Copper Triangle provides a focal point for us to connect on an annual basis with all of you --  our friends, family, and colleagues, and continue to raise support for the Foundation.  Moving toward a decade since diagnosis of PD comes with so many challenges for Wendy on a daily basis, yet those things that make the greatest difference in quality of life remain the same --  courage to exercise, patience with loss, the shift toward the Mediterranean diet, and love of those around you.  And this is what we have found with the Foundation -- a great source of ideas, support, and encouragement!  


The actual day of the Triangle --  climbing those passes and sailing those descents  --  is just icing on the cake of preparation and fun it offers over the months of summer.  Doing it together makes the shakes, stumbles, and stutters of Parkinsons take their rightful place --  just a few human quirks alongside a great life journey. 


As W.B. Yeats put it so well --  'the world is full of magic things, waiting patiently for our senses to grow.'  


Join the magic!  Be patient with yourself and others!  Let your senses soar!  And never stop noticing the humanity that surrounds us all!


John Paul and Wendy
