Joe Maione

Joe has been a great friend of mine since 2005, 15 years ago until his untimely passing 28-Apr-2017. We worked on several projects including the 2006 St. Mary’s College (SMC) 50th Anniversary Reunion, St. Mary’s College Alumni Association and the Annual SMC Alumni & Friends Golf Classic. His dedication to his high school Alma Mater SMC and the SMC Alumni Association was very dear to his heart. Joe was happiest when working on behalf of charitable organizations in need of financial support especially for Rotary, Special Olympics, Easter Seals, Ted Nolan Foundation, SAH, CIBC World Markets children's Miracle Network,Sault College Student Bursary Awards, Marconi Club and YMCA. A friend once commented “Joe defined charity in the most simple, eloquent way. He gave without being asked and after he gave, he gave more.” That was Joe … via his philanthropy he supported many charities in SSM & abroad. He would be entirely supportive of this charity. We miss you my dear Friend

My Story

31 Jul 2020

This August, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!

Why? Because right now, over 1,400 children are diagnosed with cancer every year, and it's the biggest killer of children from disease in Canada.

My family has utilized the services of Sick Kids Hospital in the past and we witnessed the exceptional healthcare given to these kids. Extremely amazing is all I can say. I am a cancer survivor and its become my goal to do whatever I can to support efforts to eliminate the big "C".

Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

So I am raising funds through my challenge to help these kids and support SickKids Foundation to allow them to continue their work in developing treatments and finding a cure for childhood cancer.

Please support me by making a donation to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

Your support will change little lives.

Thank you.

    24 Jul 2020

    Here is an update as of July 24, 2020 with my participation in the 2020 Great Cycle Challenge (GCC). For the last month I have been trying to test myself on whether I would be able to reach my ride goal of 75 K while riding my wheelchair and reach a pledge of $500.00 for the SickKids Foundation.

    Let me just say I am OVERWHELMED by the encouragement and support I have received from you, my sponsors. The official event doesn't start until next Saturday August 1, 2020 and you have helped me shatter my pledge amount with an incredible $3,070.00 raised to date. I am also pleased to let you know that we have helped Team #GraysonStrong surpass the Team goal of $5000.00 (https://greatcyclechallenge.ca/Teams/GraysonStrong).

    Just simply incredible! Also, I should let you know that I have surpassed my ride goal this week and with today’s ride I have surpassed the 100 K mark. I’m ready to take on the GCC in August as “I’m Riding to Fight Kids’ Cancer”.

    To continue following my progress click https://greatcyclechallenge.ca/Riders/AbbieDiDonato

    Again, for those of you who have sponsored and inspired me, THANK-YOU, THANK-YOU, THANK-YOU!!!

    For others still considering a donation this is a great cause. Our vision is a world without cancer where all kids are living life, not fighting for it.
