CKTB - NEWS - Brad Adams

A man is planning to ride his horse over 230 km to raise awareness for the Canadian Blood Services Stem Cell registry.

Brad Adams started his 10 day journey by riding along Highway 3 and Wainfleet Dunnville Townline Road yesterday.

Over the next few days he will ride through Tillsonburg and Port Dover before eventually reaching his destination at the Caledonia fairgrounds.

Today he will be travelling along Highway 3 and Hald-Dunn Townline Road West through Dunnville.

Adams is doing this in support of his wife Shannon who is fighting Plasma Cell Leukaemia Multiple Myeloma.

He says over 800 people are waiting for a life saving match and stem cell donor.

In a Facebook post he notes a transplant is no longer an option for Shannon, but they want to bring attention to the cause for other people in similar situations.
