I'm Riding For

Nate Cox

Twenty years ago, my "nephew" (cousin once removed) was diagnosed with ALL. At that time, I ran a marathon with Leukemia Team in Training to fundraise for the cause. Today he is a vibrant young man, thanks to kids' cancer research and treatment. All kids deserve the chance for the same outcome -- that's my inspiration for riding and fundraising! Even if you have already made many donations to worthy causes this year, please consider even a *SMALL* donation. No amount is too small -- many drops fill the bucket! Thank you! 🙂

My Story

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.

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.

    Knew I wouldn't get any long rides in this week, but had a phenomenal afternoon at the Mark Arendz Provincial Ski Centre & MTB Park. Unbelievably awesome trails for all levels.

    Today marks the first day of the month-long "Great Cycle Challenge". I rode 74km with my club (Cyclefit Chicks) along the Long Sault Parkway (St. Lawrence River from Upper Canada Village to Cornwall). Had a great rest stop in a huge park in Cornwall and enjoyed this sunny day!

    Thank you to everyone who has donated so far -- I can't believe the total is already $1366!
