Local triathlete biking for pancreatic cancer research [Video]

Patricia Pedersen is a local who is embarking on an emotional journey this weekend. Called "Everesting", Patricia will be cycling up Sydenham Hill in Dundas Ontario up 90 times, which would be the equivalent of climbing the height of Mount Everest. For this eight-time ironman finisher, she thought it would be a great way to fundraise and raise awareness for pancreatic cancer in honour of her friend Lara who is battling this cancer. The following week (May 28), Patricia will embark on the 7 days in May week long 1,200km ride across Ontario. Melissa Candelaria spoke with Patricia on May 17, who starts off by going more in depth about why she's taking on these two major challenges. For details and to donate go to https://bit.ly/37VqH5W.
