I'm Riding For



Just weeks after being diagnosed with cancer, my mom passed away. She raised 7 teenagers on her own and looking back, I'm not sure how she survived us. She gives me the strength to realize that we can do anything, if we put our mind to it. January 7th, 2012 feels like yesterday and I miss you like crazy mom.

My Story

2 Jun 2020

2020 is my 5th year riding in the Great Cycle Challenge and to date my sponsors have raised an amazing $7,416.12. As we try and find the new normal, these children are just trying to survive. Please help me and let's work together to save the children.

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.

    Too funny, I was born in 64 and have made 64 trips inside the beer store since June for this fundraiser! Just counted my slips and found that out. What an absolutely amazing fundraising total of $4146.55. So happy with all my sponsors and my Bottle Donations. 64 is definitely a great number!

  • Fundraising continues through September 2020
    5 Sep 2020

    In a year where I never expected to reach my goal, I am thrilled to announce that as of today, WE have exceeded the combined total of my highest two years since 2016. One day in August, I woke up and decided that I have raised enough and actually gave myself permission to finish. Less then an hour later, I received an email from the Community Facebook Freecycle Site and they offered to post and help me raise funds. As a believer in the Spirit World, I definitely felt that was my mother, saying 'Don't you dare give up yet'. This fundraiser has officially been extended until September 30th and I will continue and do my bottle returns until the last day and also accept cash donations. I originally wanted to beat my combined total of the last 4 years and WE might just accomplish that. I am so happy with the results and contributions of all my sponsors of money and empties. Thank you and please do not stop!

  • Bottle Drive
    22 Aug 2020

    To date, I have entered the beer store 46 times with a full cart of cans/bottles for a total of $955. Each time I fill up a cart for donations, I get a beer store receipt, so tracking donations is much easier. I now believe that I have spent my summer at the Beer Store, but loving the donations!

    Kick Cancer's Butt day brought in $1235.00 in donations and $1073.85 in matched donations. That's an incredible $2308.85 in one day. This was a year, that I didn't expect anything and here I am now at $3430.15 in donations, the highest in 5 years. Thank you to all the amazing people I have met during Bottle Donations, we are at $591.30 and to all the outstanding people who have donated to date. My mom would be so very happy with this accomplishment. THANK YOU EVERYONE. Two weeks left and the fundraising continues...

    I have been collecting and returning bottle donations over the last two weeks, but I am saving the post until Kick Cancer's Butt Day because all donations on August 13th will be matched. If you are thinking of donating bottles or cash, please let me know and we can get this entered August 13th. Donations must happen August 13th only to be doubled.

  • August 7th: 1st Ride with Jen
    7 Aug 2020

    I was truly nervous about riding this year, with all the bike accidents I hear about. Finally today, I forced myself to just go. As I was leaving my house I got a text from my friend who asked to join me. Talk about good timing. Jennifer showed me some great off road areas and now I have the perfect area to ride. Thanks Jen for always being in the right place at the right time!

  • Bottle Donations is the NEW Work OUT
    15 Jun 2020

    Who would have thought that Bottle Donations was a 'Work OUT'. Over the last week, bottle donations raised $363.20. I spent Sunday crushing 1840 cans by hand and what a great work out. Remember you have the ability to get your donation posted in your name with a tax receipt. Looking forward to an amazing year of fundraising for Kids with Cancer!
