8 YEAR OLD KEON TAKES ON THE 200KM RIDEAU LAKES BICYCLE TOUR, JUNE 6-7, 2015

We all have to face challenges in today’s world. Our family (mom, dad, 2 sisters and Keon) has decided to ride the Rideau Lakes Bicycle Tour with the hope of raising awareness about Williams syndrome, a rare genetic condition  Our goal is to complete a 2 day, 200 km section of the ride between Perth, Ontario and Kingston, Ontario.   Keon, my little brother was diagnosed with Williams syndrome when he was one and half years old.  As we strive to complete this bicycle challenge, we want to spread a message of ability; we all have challenges but with the support and understanding of others we can achieve so much. We hope through our efforts we are able to raise money for the Williams Syndrome Association to help them take another step forward with their mission to support families affected by Williams syndrome. - Ella, Keon's older sister.

Please follow follow us on Facebook as we train and ride the tour!

Event Days: June 6-7th, 2015, come out to Kingston, Ontario, Queens Campus to cheer Keon on.

As a family, we have benefited greatly from Dr. Mervis’s research, the Williams Syndrome Association and the funds raised will also support the Canadian Association for Williams Syndrome (CAWS).

The Williams Syndrome Association (WSA) is the most comprehensive resource for people and families living with WS as well as doctors, researchers and educators - funding groundbreaking research, hosting camps and conventions, providing scholarships, coordinating regional programming and more.
