My Story

11 Apr 2022

I will be returning to the road in this summer to help raise money for SickKids’ cancer patients and am writing to ask you support my ride by donating to SickKIds.

While childhood cancer remains a disease to be reckoned with, the progress has been significant. Here is an excerpt from a Public Health Agency of Canada study as well as a link to the study:

“Over the last 30 years childhood cancer survival rates have improved substantially, from 71% in the late 1980s to 82% in the early 2000’s; 5-year survival rates have increased for several types of childhood cancers.”

The abovementioned progress helps motivate my continued commitment to participate in this event. The money raised helps with research efforts, treatment, and care of children at SickKids and around the world.

I will ride 1,500 in August, the designated month for the ride.

I hope to ride a total of 7,500 kms between June and October 2022. The distance represents the equivalent of Cape Spear, Newfoundland to Victoria, British Columbia (excluding the ferry rides at either end).

Thank you,

Anthony
