I'm Riding For

Lily

I am dedicating my goal to my cousin Carol Quesnel's 3 year old grand daughter Lily who is fighting stage 4 Neuroblastoma cancer. Carol shares that Lily has been in the hospital since October. It so heart breaking to see children having to go through all of that suffering. This is such a great cause and I sure hope they find a cure soon.

My Story

18 Jul 2020

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

Why? Because right now in Canada, over 1,400 children are diagnosed with cancer every year, and it's the biggest killer of children from disease in Canada. Including my cousin Carol Quesnel's grand-daughter Lily. Carol shared that "Lily has been in the hospital since October. It's so heart breaking to see children having to go through all of that suffering. This is such a great cause and I sure hope they find a cure soon. "

Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

So I am raising funds through my challenge to help Lily and kids like her 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.

    30 Jul 2020

    Thank you all for your continued generosity and support. Contributions are still coming in so I've increased our goal to $2,500!

    To make it interesting, I am willing to increase my km goal to 500km if we reach our donation goal of $2,500 by 20 Aug 20. So if you have not had a chance to make your donation yet…please do so.

    IT CAN BE DONE!!! (another appropriate motto borrowed from my old Sea Cadet Corps RCSCC Admiral Mountbatten)

    Due to your continued awesome generosity and support I've had to increase our fundraising goal once again.

  • Ready Aye Ready!!!
    30 Jul 2020

    Thought I'd borrow a very appropriate motto from the Royal Canadian Navy to announce that I'm ready and raring to start my ride to fight kid's cancer Aug 1st. I received the nifty t-shirt that I purchased to help put the word out.

    Ready Aye Ready!!!
