Join together to finish the ride across Canada to promote vitamin D!

Kanji Cycles Across Canada


Dr. Kanji Nakatsu and his wife, Susie, started a bike ride across Canada to promote awareness of the health benefits of Vitamin D. Since the start of the journey in early May, they have crossed four provinces. Health issues put a hold on their cross-country cycling, but we invite you to show your support by helping Kanji and Susie reach their goal.

After you bike, kayak, swim, run, or walk this summer (i.e., any outdoor activity to boost your vitamin D) , please fill in our form to add your kilometres. Update your kilometre registration as often as you wish, and we will update the progress throughout the summer.

Share your activity on social media and tag us @DVitaMan on instagram or @CCCAlliance on X (Twitter) and use #VitDTour and #RUGettingEnough for a chance to be featured in our future updates.

Let's join together to finish the ride across Canada!
