Regas Evangelos

Regas Evangelos

We truly miss our dear, dear friend but his legacy lives on in his amazing family and friends group. This is a bench in memory from the BFF group. You too, must have a neighbour or co-worker or family member that you miss dearly. Let’s all help the wee ones and honour our loved ones. Miss you Regas, oh Great One!

My Story

28 May 2022

I am signing up early for this challenge for the fifth year, because I believe in the cause very much, and because we have so much fun participating, as a family team!

This August, I am excited to be taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer! We do this for the kids that don’t deserve the struggles they go through- so very young in so many cases. They are the true Super-Heroes!

Watch out for the Hitchen team this year! More information to follow!

We are raising funds to help these kids and to support SickKids Foundation 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!

Thank you.

    Nothing like waiting to the last day to get my last km but it feels good just the same. 😁

    Still not quite at my donation goal of $1500 but super appreciative of all sponsors and supporters to date. You have my heartfelt gratitude.

    And thanks to our chapter leader Jay for inspiring and supporting me in every way including the all important bike care and maintenance. πŸ’•

    Just crazy- one km left to go - how did I do that- must be too distracted lol

    Sure enjoy this challenge- the camaraderie of the GCC group is amazing.

    And the riding is fun and good for the soul! Some days a much needed stress reliever.

    Unbelievable to me are a few things:

    How good it feels to ride when it’s COOLer! Yippee.

    How generous people are when asked, especially for such a good cause! πŸ’—

    How many families are struggling with sick children due to CANCER πŸ₯²

    How supportive and positive the GCC riders are to each other. πŸ₯°πŸ€—

    How refreshing it truly is to have a cloudy 20 degree day, I just cannot even believe it- how amazing it feels.πŸ˜€

    End of week 3- yay!
