Taken by lung cancer when I needed him most, during my entry into adulthood. I ride for all that suffer the scourge of cancer.

My Story

11 Jul 2020

This year, due to spread of Covid19, the challenge has been pushed to 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. SickKids treats approx. 25% of all childhood cancer patients across Canada at its Garron Family Cancer Centre.

Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

So I am raising funds through my challenge to help these kids and support the SickKids Foundation to allow them to continue their work in developing treatments and finding a cure for childhood cancer.

Please support me and my Burlington Dads team by making a donation to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

Your support will change little lives.

CANCER SUCKS

Thank you.

    This weekend, Lori Neville was riding for the GCC in Wyoming Ontario when she was struck by a car. She died en route to the hospital. I will be riding in her honour on Wednesday.

  • Kick Cancer’s Butt Day update
    13 Aug 2020

    Kick Cancer’s Butt day has been a booming success! All of you guys have shocked me with your generosity and love. So far today, over $1600 has been raised to add to my total! All or a good portion will be matched by a Super Donor that is donating up to $1,000,000 today. I’ve collected and returned over $1,000 worth of empties this month!

    I’ve been riding as much as time permits but since I’ve raised so much more that I am upping my KMs goal to 750km.

    The kids fighting cancer have the tough battle, just like all of us that have been affected by cancer in our lives, they need this love and support that you have shown through your donations.

    Peace and love to all!

  • Empty Liquor containers full of CASH
    29 Jul 2020

    I’m winding down my empties collecting because it’s time to start pedalling around Ontario. I have collected about $775 worth of empties. That sounds like a lot because it is! My last run was the largest by far. It took many hours of work but I met lots of new acquaintances and old friends. Thank you all for your generosity. Pass the word on that these kids need your help. Sponsor my ride, please.
