Arlene Mulder Papaioannou

Arlene Mulder Papaioannou

This years ride is in memory of my daughter Arlene, who lost her fight in a battle against stage IV colon cancer in October 2018💔! While she was no longer a child, she was MY child and so I ride to support kids who are fighting this horrible disease of cancer, but in Arlene’s memory. Please help me to reach my goal of $5000 this year. I’m trusting that I can count on your support again this year....will YOU be the one that pushes my numbers over the top? You sponsor and I will do the biking!

My Story

15 May 2020

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.

This years ride is again in memory of my daughter Arlene, who lost her fight

in a battle against cancer in October 2018💔! While she was no longer a child, she was MY child, so I ride to support kids who are fighting this horrible disease of cancer, but in Arlene’s memory. In my ride in 2019 I surpassed my goal of $5000, so this year I am setting my goal at $5000 to start. There are still kids who have not gotten to go home, so I will continue to bike, and I am hoping that you will continue to support me by sponsoring. YOU SPONSOR AND I WILL DO THE BIKING! Please support me by making a donation to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

Your support will change little lives.

Thank you.

    Hoping to start training rides on my new bike soon! The knee is healing and the colours in my face are shifting. I am getting anxious to do a ride on the new wheels. Glad that the heat is happening while I am off the bike for a bit. I hope that next week the temperatures will be a bit more tolerable!

    No riding for a few more days, but that’s no reason to not continue fundraising!

    After my spill on Sunday, the colour of the eye is changing......from my side it looks great! The knee is healing up nicely and hopefully, soon the bruise and swelling on the thigh will subside as well!

    On a great note though, I got new wheels today.....well, pickup is tomorrow morning. So exciting and now I want to get out there and ride again!

    Was a good plan at the start....check out a new trail....went out together this morning, trail was ok until we got to hills, wet grass and corners all together.....then not so much. Did finally make it home but feeling just a bit light headed now, so won't be doing another ride today...lol

    Tonight was a short training ride and lots of conversation about what I am riding for and connecting with sponsors. It was a good night once again! So thankful, that even during Covid 19, there are still many generous people who believe in the cause and are willing to support my ride. Had a few really nice conversations with some very nice people tonight!

    STOP!!! You haven't donated yet? - it's not too late to do so!

    It's going to be a hot day today and company's a'coming, so not sure about a ride today....apparently I have been appointed the designated swimmer with an almost three year old...lol

    So let's check out your odds in the lotteries......sponsor me right now, and your odds of winning a prize are 1 in 60...and you get to help make a difference in the lives of children fighting cancer. Those are much better odds than other lotteries, so continue to support Sick Kids Foundation, and hopefully MY efforts to raise $5000 for the cause. You sponsor, and I will do the biking....400 kilometers in the month of August!

    Can I count on YOU?

    After working all day, I was able to get out for a short ride and connect with a few more friends, so together we are able to help the kids who are still battling this horrible disease. It was a very interesting ride when I was greeted by "Charlie" at the second place I stopped!

    14 Jun 2020

    This morning I saw that the unicycle man had been up since 5:30 a.m. to do a ride before working the train from Windsor back to Toronto. I touched base with Zach, and told him I would be at the train station in Ingersoll with my jersey on, and wave to him as he went by. The train did not stop but he caught a short video clip while they were going by and sent it to me. While waiting for the train, I chatted with someone who was all about taking pictures of trains, and also part of Oxford Trails and shared some of the local trails with me. We chatted until the train came by and he promised to send me the picture he took of me on my bike sporting the GCC jersey. Also said he would try to promote what I am trying to do to raise funds (along with many other riders across the country). The afternoon was a bit more biking and fundraising and so it has been a great day once again!

    Tonight I did a short evening ride.....kilometers don't add up too fast when you are also fundraising and chatting with potential sponsors. It was a good night though, and got to add to my totals! Thanks to those who sponsored tonight!

    It was hot and I made a stop at some friends who had a lovely pool that looked very tempting to take a dip into but biking in wet clothes was less appealing...lol. Will add the video link once I have created it! Challenging again to remember how to create the youtube video...lol....oops, youtube video did not create properly so check out my facebook page to see the actual ride!

    Well that took a whole morning to figure out again.....but I think I got it now....forgot to add any music to the video, and forgot to remove a thumb picture....lol....but it's a training ride and a training video upload I guess. Enjoy and follow my journey in GCC2020.

    The first prize for a draw on September 1, 2020 has been secured...still working on a second one but won't know about that one for probably another month. Stay tuned and watch my page to see what else might develop between now and September 1, 2020. In the meantime, the more sponsors I have, the more kids we are all able to help.

    So the last few days have been extremely hot, making biking for this senior much more difficult....and so it really did not happen....But we are heading into a few cooler days again, so will get out there to do some more training rides before the big event in August. We can only hope for some cool days in August so I can get my 400 kilometers in.....but more importantly, that I will be able to reach my goal of $5000.00 this year. Won't you please help me to do that?! You don't have to do the biking....leave that to me, as long as you come alongside me with your support! Thanks so much to all my faithful followers and supporters, and any others who want to jump on board this year for the first time!

    Ugh....so I have tried to use the link from GCC, with a personal update, to pm my fb friends.....but alas, it doesn't seem to be working the way I wanted it to, SO HERE IS THE INFORMATION YOU NEED, if you are willing to support me in my ride to raise funds for Childhood Cancer at Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto.

    To all my previous sponsors and friends of Great Cycle Challenge:

    I have, once again, signed up for GCC, and am trusting, that even in these trying times, I will be able to count on the support of many. I know we are all struggling through these days, but it's just a taste of what the kids fighting cancer go through every day......we all want to stay safe and alive, and so do they.

    To read more about my previous rides and more reasons of why I ride, please check out the link below.

    If you choose to support me (fundraising will be much more difficult this year because of the social distancing), support can be given directly online by clicking on the link below:

    https://greatcyclechallenge.ca/Riders/HenriettaOlthoffMulder

    Thank you for taking the time to check out the link, and thank you to all who are able to help me help the kids!

    Stay safe and stay well!

    Today was a gorgeous day out....lots of sunshine, no rain, a bit of wind, and lots of time, as we are all being encouraged to distance ourselves from others because of Covid-19. So pump up the tires, dust off the bike, and go for my first ride of the season. It felt so good to get out there this early in the year. Because of the current health threat around the world, Great Cycle Challenge has postponed GCC2020 to August. This allows for more time for practice rides.....but also poses more difficult challenges in fundraising this year. I am hoping I can count on many of my sponsors from previous years, as I try to reach a goal of $5000 this year. I will do the biking (400 kms in the month of August) and all I ask of you, is that you would continue with the generous sponsoring of past years. Stay safe everyone!
