R udy Pospisil, one of our Fire Cap­tains, has been cy­cling around the world to raise money for can­cer re­search. His jour­ney finishes in Mel­bourne, Aus­tralia on Novem­ber 18, 2017.He says that “I am a man from Bri­tish Columbia they dont even know. The sup­port has been amaz­ing. I think they know peo­ple from Bri­tish Columbia and Fire­fight­ers are good peo­ple. I fly my Cana­dian flag with sig­na­tures of Cana­di­ans and can­cer pa­tients. What a great turnout by all the amaz­ing Aus­tralian Vol­un­teer Fire­fight­ers. At least a dozen crews were wait­ing at the sides of the high­way on my way into the out­back to chat and shake hands . I had a few good sto­ries ready!!!. Th­ese amaz­ing men and women do the job not for money (be­cause they dont get paid)...but be­cause they love to help oth­ers. I told the Com­mis­sioner this morn­ing he must be proud of his vol­un­teers and he con­firmed he is!.I know th­ese are the guys that will come to my aid and clean me off the road if any­thing hap­pens to me. Each day now will be less and less peo­ple cars and trucks just a desert plain and noth­ing. World Record. 5 hours 1 minute and 20 sec­onds. OF­FI­CIALLY RECORDED This was one tough feat av­er­age 30 kph , I did not feel alone ev­ery­one fol­low­ing can­cer pa­tients fam­ily thank you all . I’m real tired now so I think I’ll go home Only 3000 km to go. So if you want to beat it $1000 to the can­cer char­ity of your choice is the fee. i will pay for the first chal­lenger. Good luck its a bitch like rid­ing into a fur­nace on at full blast. My eye­balls dried out and my nose is plugged with dust. Four months ago I was lis­ten­ing to this song be­cause I could not walk up a set of stairs I was so weak I never thought i would ride a bike again Four months ago I could not walk up a set of stairs with­out be­ing winded. To­day I am 300 km into a 4000 fi­nal jour­ney around the world. I fin­ish in Mel­bourne Nov 18. I still rep­re­sent The Burn­aby Fire depart­ment and am very happy I do.
