World Vitiligo Day 2015 in Canada
Farha biking across Canada for vitiligo awareness.
"Crossing Canada on 8 000km (4970mi) from West to East is a personal challenge, and I want to take this opportunity to raise awareness about vitiligo and encourage the scientific research. I will start on May 16th 2015.
