Alf Todd

I was born (that might come as a surprise to some of you), in Victoria in 1951, moved to California in 1958.  In 1971 I met my pride and joy, Patty.  We were married a year later (June 1972).  In 1976 we returned to Victoria.  (I’ll share details upon request.)

Shortly after moving to the Island, I got work at Island Farms Dairy, where I spent nearly 35 years, mostly as a home delivery  milkman; and I have only the three children that I raised.  (milkman joke)

In the spring of 2007 I began to realize that something was going wrong with my body.  Soon after wards I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease.  I am a committed Christian and was quick to tell God that I had other plans for my life.  I lost the argument and became an active advocate doing all I can to encourage others.

In 2011, my daughter, Cindy, formed the Parky’s Pedalers and the following summer we rode with a team of 16 cyclists to San Francisco, raising nearly $30,000 for PD research.  Now, here we are only 4 weeks away from a ride from a tip-to-tip ride of Vancouver Island.

I look forward to getting to know all of you.  Thanks for signing up.  Keep pumping.
