My Story

4 Aug 2022

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

Generall I feel uncomfortable asking people of $, as all of us get numerous requests to contribute and we do for very noble causes. But recently one of my dear friend's 13 year old daughter was diagnosed with cancer and that provided me courage to use my social network to ask for donations, irrespective.

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.

I kick started my campaign with a 100K ride on August 1, 2022 and have set following targets for 2022

- to pedal 1,100 kilometres throughout the month of August (last year I did 1,027)

- get to an average speed of 28.5kmh by end of the season for a ride longer than 30km

- do at least four 100KM plus rides by the end of the season

- raise at least $11,000 for the cancer research

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.
