“Thirty cents, that’s all we have to get from each Canadian and we’ll have the $10,000,000 for the researchers to go ahead with doing more for the cure for spinal cord injury. They’re so close, all they need is the money. We have to let people know what’s happening,” said Charlie Cetinski, 65, a master electrician and entrepreneur, who got a spinal cord injury in a flying accident 10 years ago.
“This ride across Canada gives us hope and it’s hopeful for the 42,000,000 people around the world in wheelchairs and those with neurological conditions that could be helped by this research. We all hope to be walking in four to five years.”
Cetinski and three friends with spinal chord injuries, Les McLaughlin, Harvey Uppal and Chuck Mealing, all of Ontario, are biking across Canada starting from Victoria June 10 and expecting to end in St. John’s, Nfld. in early September.
