Dan and Hannah with a Prince Edward Island Fundraising Update

In June of 2013, Hannah and I biked the 175 mile Confederation Trail across Prince Edward Island in Canada from Tignish to Elmira.  We were raising money for our friend Amy Paquette and her family to go to Disney World in Orlando, Florida.  Amy, a top-of-the-class student of mine at the University of New England, was struck by a disabling brain aneurysm in early 2013.

Some 50 of our family and friends donated over $1600 for the Family Paquette for their trip to Disney World.

I am pleased to report that in August of 2014, Amy was healthy enough to drive with her husband Mike and their three young boys to Orlando, Florida.

On Saturday, September 13, 2014, Hannah and I with our sister-in-law Becky and good friends Donna and George Ellis participated in the 6th Annual KAT Walk for Brain Aneurysm Awareness fundraiser in Portland, Maine.  Amy as our captain led more than 50 of us on her “A Team” around the Back Bay in Portland, Maine on a blustery, fall-is-in-the-air, mid-September afternoon.

If you are in the Portland, Maine area in September 2015 consider walking with us to raise money to fight this debilitating disease.
