PRINCE GEORGE — A local man is cycling from Prince George to Jasper this past weekend, raising awareness and money for epilepsy.
Chris Winwood is a cyclist living with epilepsy from Prince George and will cycle all the way from the Northern Capital to Jasper, with a team of 5 other riders making a stop in McBride on Saturday night, before heading to Jasper on Sunday to complete his journey. Chris says that he wants to help people create a strong, diverse and positive community for people with epilepsy. “Epilepsy is one of the most common neurological conditions and is a medical condition that results in recurring seizures. A seizure is a sudden, brief, and temporary disturbance of electrical activity in the brain. There are over 40 different types of seizures which can alter consciousness, movement, sensation, speech, awareness, and behaviour.” – Ride 4 Epilepsy Website
