My Story

4 Aug 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.

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.

I spent a chunk of my childhood in SickKids, and I would like to show my gratitude by helping them support today's kids fighting for their lives.

I will be cycling on my childhood bike - a single-speed BMX. This bike is much smaller than a typical road bike and will allow me to go less than half the speed.

Please support me by donating to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

Your support will change little lives.

Thank you.

  • THANK YOU
    16 Aug 2020

    Thank you, Sponsors! It's now officially halfway through August and I've already raised more than I anticipated being able to! I now have about 15 days to complete roughly 1,500km of biking... all on my BMX! Heres to roughly 100km a day every day for the next two weeks!

    Even though I've exceeded my fundraising goal, I will still be completing my kilometre goal and taking donations for the next two weeks. My teammates in Little Bike for Little Lives are also fundraising and taking donations if you'd like to send your support towards them to help out their cause, all the money goes to SickKids towards treatments and finding cures to help kids with pediatric cancer.

  • Thank You
    25 Jun 2020

    Thank you, sponsors, for the very generous donations thus far! Together, we've nearly raised $1500 for pediatric cancer research so far! You're all helping to make a big difference in many child's lives. I will be updating my donation goal accordingly. Let's keep the money rolling in for the kids! You can donate anonymously if you'd like, to me, my teammate Asa, or our team 'Little Bikes for Little Lives'. Thank you for supporting a good cause.

    Thank You
