My Fourth Great Cycle Challenge

18 Mar 2022

This August I am participating in the Great Cycle Challenge 2022 to fight kids' cancer! This is my fourth Challenge.

I am riding to honour the memory of my son, Avrum, whose battle with cancer ended in May, 1982. Avrum was 10.

I am riding to honour the memories of all my relatives and friends who have dealt or are dealing with cancer.

Kids (everyone) 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 (and all) cancer.

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

Your support will change lives.

Thank you.
