My Story

14 Jul 2022

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 July for 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. Tracking my kms. start on August 1, however, my donation tracker starts today. Please donate to help Fight Kids' Cancer.

Your support will change little lives.

Thank you, Doug

I apologize for the late thank you as we were in the states out of signal and am now waiting in the long ferry lineup going back to Paradise Island. Just seeing both your names in my support chain brings back such wonderful memories of the 50s, 60s & 70s when we had such great visits🕺💃🙏🏼 Trying to get back there next Spring but you may be away again? Thanks again you two and bless you🙏🏼”
