My Story

16 Dec 2021

In 2022 I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer! I am kicking off the fundraising by providing a pair of basketball tickets that I won in a raffle just prior to Christmas. Usually I donate a bit of money to my own campaign, but this year I gave the tickets to a donor instead.

Last year I completed a half Ironman during the challenge, and this year I'll be riding a full Ironman. That's 180km in one day!

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.

    Thank you so much for helping to fight kids’ cancer. For the second year in a row I’ve reached my fundraising goal of $500 and it’s all thanks to you!

    Now comes the gruelling part: finishing off the 500km this month. Normally that wouldn’t be a difficult feat except I’m in the final stages of preparation for my first Ironman event. So I’m spending a lot of time also training for the run and swim. And this week coming is mostly rest in preparation for Sunday.

    If you want to follow along on August 21st, then you can download the IM Tracker app, search for Tremblant, then search participants by last name. Sign up for alerts if you dare, and you’ll get rewarded with dizzying alerts for 14-16 hours as I ride 180km (in between swimming 4 and running 42).

    Here’s the last photo I have with my friend Matt. Nobody, especially a child deserves to go through what he did.

    Ride on!
