My Story

2 Jun 2019

I am now riding in this June challenge to help in the fight against kids' cancer.

One fan will be cheering me on from above, my mom, who we lost way too early to cancer.

My goal is to ride 1050km throughout the month. I raised it from 1000. I will beat it.

My fundraising goal was $500 initially. My first sponsors beat that quickly. I raised my goal to $1000, & new sponsors CRUSHED that goal. Goals should be positive, aggressive and realistic. This isn’t MY goal any more, this OUR goal, so I am raising OUR goal to $2500. We can do it!

Why? Because cancer is still, now in 2019, the main killer of kids from disease (4 every week) in Canada. That’s a lot of pain in a lot of lives. I can’t begin to imagine the despair of watching my child attacked by this horrific disease. Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

All funds raised will support SickKids Foundation to provide care, develop treatments and find a cure for childhood cancers.

Thank you.

  • Excited to be at 99% of my ride goal. 100% of fund raising goal.
    27 Jun 2019

    On tonight's commute home from work I will pass my ride goal of 1051km for the month of June. We're celebrating this, and the last day of school, with a special dinner - kids choice. Quite appropriate, I think. Kids don't always get a choice. I'm estimating that, weather and health permiting, I will actually finish the month at 108% of my ride goal. 108% of my fund raising goal would be $2700! Please share. I'd love to raise more for the cause. Every donation counts. A huge THANK-YOU to those who have donated, encouraged and shared their experiences. The rides through beautiful Ottawa/Gatineau have been great. Love this city. Love this country. Have a fun and safe Canada Day weekend all.

    Excited to be at 99% of my ride goal. 100% of fund raising goal.

    24 Jun 2019

    With this morning's ride at 949 of 1050. That's 90% of my ride goal, with six days to go. I'm not afraid to target 110% of my ride goal. Maybe I can get to 110% of my fund raising goal too. The ride to Pink Lake through Gatineau Park in our beautiful national capital is amazing.

  • $$$$$ Goal reached - thank-you!!!
    22 Jun 2019

    Tonight, thanks to Graham Brown and all my amazing donors, I have reached the goal I set for this campaign. Cancer truly sucks, but we can and will make a difference, and take on this damn disease. Thanks so much everyone. Still riding - inspired to crush my goal if my body can take it, but I am always reminded that people have fought, and still are fighting much harder battles than biking up a hill - or biking for a few Kms. You all rock. Thanks so much. I am grateful and hopeful.

    31 May 2019

    Had quite the scare last Thursday. Hit a Puddle that was a 3" deep pot hole. The bike stopped dead. I didn't until I hit the pavement. A lot of pain and a trip to emergency, and they told me nothing was torn, nothing was broken - just scrapes and bad bruises. I've committed to ride 1000+ kms in June, and last Friday morning I couldn't stand without a crutch.

    Good news is every day I've seen improvement. Back on the bike on Monday. A couple rides on Tuesday, and working the kilometrage up to average >33 per day, which is what is needed to meet the 1000km goal in 30 days.

    I don't need much more encouragement and motivation than what I draw from the kids that the Great Cycle Challenge is trying to help. My amazing sponsors are an inspiration as well. We can do this.

    May 29th my mom would have been 90 years old. Wish she'd have been around for all my kids to meet and enjoy. Every neighborhood kid was welcome in our house when we were growing up. When grand kids started happening, her heart made a ton of room for them.

    Happy Birthday Mom.

    Let's do this.

    For the kids.

  • Thankful, humbled and motivated.
    9 May 2019

    I never imagined the support I would get for this. The awesome initial wave of donors got me to my goal within 12 hours of my initial post. You are amazing and I am most grateful. It's remarkable.

    I am thankful, but feel obliged to raise my goal so that others are encouraged to help bridge the gap. Thanks to donors for getting me this far. I'm hoping new donors will help bring me up a level.

    Quid quo pro, I also feel obliged to raise my km objective by at least 1 km for every $10 over my initial 1000km target.

    Thanks for helping me do this.
