My Story

22 Mar 2019

I don't know a person whose life hasn't been affected by cancer taking someone they cared about. For me personally, I lost my father to cancer, along with a number of other family members.

This year I've decided to do something charitable while challenging myself in a healthy way and so I'm participating in this charity.

I hope you will support my efforts!

  • 75% of the way and 4 days to go!
    26 Jun 2019

    Getting down to it now!

    The charity is extending the deadline a bit since some people had an abnormal amount of bad weather (I wonder why that is) but I'm still aiming to finish my 500km by end of day Sunday. Wish me luck!

    Last night I went for a quick ride wearing the cycle jersey I got from the charity. This picture is not from last night but gives you an idea of what I looked like. ;)

  • Kick Cancer's Butt Day success!
    14 Jun 2019

    Wow! Thank you everyone for your support.

    Yesterday was a wild day in terms of hustling to get amazing people like you to donate or up your previous donations. I'm told by the charity that the day was a huge success and they received so many donations they capped out the matching funds. Each participant was given matching donations up to 64% as a result, but for my part that put me close enough to my ultimate goal that the wife and I paid the last bit ourselves.

    I am very proud to say that with your help I was able to raise a total of $2500 for this charity in my first year participating. I can't thank you all enough!

    Off to a rough start with the challenge with losing my bike and losing my charity partner (for good reason!) but now I'm setting out and looking to catch up!
