My Story

This June, 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.

Please support me by making a donation to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

Your support will change little lives.

Thank you.

John

  • Thursday 13 th all donations count double
    10 Jun 2019

    This Thursday, any donations to the great cycle challenge will be matched. Anyone still considering sponsoring me can really make it count ( literally double) if the donation is made on Thursday

    They are calling it Kick Cancer’s Butt day, let’s give neoplasia a good old Glaswegian “ Doing” that day.

    Rides wise I am just short of halfway at 275km, mostly on gravel so earning it!

    Donations just over $1400 so many thanks again to all those who already sponsored me, hugely generous.

    A year ago I didn’t think I would be here let alone riding for this cause. Cancer doesn’t discriminate but huge strides are being made that really do make a difference in its treatment and also maintain quality of life. We can all benefit from this work as 1/3 to 1/2 of us will experience cancer in one form or another during our lifetime. Let’s start with the kids and help in cancer research and treatment at an early age. Thanks again for considering,

    Thursday 13 th all donations count double
