I'm Riding For

Marc Rouleau

We haven't thought of much aside from Covid-19 the last couple years but cancer hasn't gone away. I know this all too well. My best friend, Marc Rouleau, succumbed to cancer April 5, 2020. I don't have enough space here to tell you what a great person he was. Just an outstanding father, soldier, husband, professional. In one final cruelty he missed the birth of his first grandchild by 5 days. I'll continue to ride in Marc's memory this year. He was not a child and although I'm riding in support of the fight against childhood cancer, I think that's ok as what ever we can do to fight childhood cancer will help in the general fight against cancer. When you and I get a chance to speak please ask me about Marc.

My Story

1 Jul 2022

This August, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer! I've pledged to ride 1,800 km during the month of August. Believe me this will be a real challenge. Several big rides this year including 2-day Toronto to Ottawa (475 km), to St. Catharines and back (280 km) and along the scenic Gaspe coast (250 km). Looks like my 17-year son Nathan will be joining me for all rides this year before he heads off to McMaster to study engineering.

Cancer remains the #1 killer of children from disease in Canada. Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

Of the 1,700 children who are diagnosed with cancer each year in Canada about 25% of these brave kids are treated at SickKids Garron Family Cancer Centre. 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 consider being a part of this life-saving venture, giving HOPE to many families. Please support me by making a donation to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve

Thank you.
