I'm Riding For

Alfred Groom

Alfred Groom

Honouring a friend’s death is truly about honouring their life. I am better for knowing Alfred. Alfred Groom was an extraordinary man. The achievements over his 84 year life span were clearly remarkable. A licensed pilot. An admirer of fast cars (Tesla). Always learning about the latest advancements. Commonwealth Games gold medal winning athlete in pole vaulting, a businessman constantly improving his various business interests, a civic minded individual and mentor to any and all requiring a boost. Alfred enjoyed life to the ultimate level. Alfred was my friend.

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.

Dean
