My Story

20 Apr 2019

Hi everyone,

This June, 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.

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 for your support, it is greatly appreciated!

  • More than 1/2 way..
    17 Jun 2019

    Hey everyone,

    With today’s 35k 🚴🏾‍♀️, I am more than 1/2 way to my goal of riding 200 kms 😀. Thanks for the support and cheering me on as I get out there and take on those hills. As long as the weather permits, I will be out there. I’ve also raised $1,293 towards this great cause, which for kids like Matteo, means a lot.

    Have a great week,

    Aileen

  • 50K Weekend
    10 Jun 2019

    This weekend the weather cooperated so we could get out there and ride, ride, ride. We did 20K'ish on Saturday and 30K'ish on Sunday. Yesteday was a long ride for me, but the route was relatively flat and I was committed. 30k is nothing for Jeff, but he let me set the pace and we finished feeling great.

    Thanks for your support and continue to wish us luck as we ride on :-).

    Cheers,

    Jeff & Aileen

    15 May 2019

    Well Mother Nature cooperated today and we were able to get out for another ride. Getting in the riding spirit and so pleased for all the donations so far. I’m so close to my goal of $1,000 that I’m thinking of raising it to support our team goal of $2,000. Thank you everyone for the generous donations, hoping the weekend weather will be great.

    4 May 2019

    Thank you everyone for your generous donations. I wonder sometimes how things will go with fundraising and if the goal will be reached, but I always know I can count on my family and friends to support our efforts to help fight kids cancer.

    As of now Jeff and I have raised $650 toward our goal or $2,000, because of your generosity.

    Thanks so much,

    Aileen & Jeff
