Marian’s story

Marian completed RBC GranFondo Whistler 2017 in an amazing time, beating hundreds of riders up the hillclimb

“Well, it’s two nights before the big day. I never believed this was possible. My story may not be that unusual but I am proud to be realizing a personal challenge and am almost there. I am 62 years old and in the past year, retired from my 38-year teaching career and completed my doctoral studies at SFU. On top of that, one year ago I had open heart surgery to correct an aortic aneurysm.”

“I am doing this ride to honour everyone who has been in my court over the past few years, particularly my family and wonderful cardiac team.”
