I would like to dedicate our 2018 ride in memory of Trent Hart, Marvin Hart & Carys Whalen.

My Story

22 Jun 2018

This June, we are 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 we are 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. Natalie & I each commit to cycling 250kms for a total of 500 kms during the month of June.

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

Your support will change little lives.

Thank you.

  • A lovely day for a 52 km ride.
    15 Jun 2018

    Well it was quite the ride today: rode 50+ kms; met a class of students and their teachers from a Timberlea area school discussing with an RCMP officer what they should do ( schools were told to take kids in and these students were on a field trip ); saw a groundhog for the first time in years running towards on the path & met 2 orher cyclists participating in the #GreatCycleChallenge, Nicole who is using the event to also train for a trip to Chester ( her personal goal for the Summer ) & Garner who recently went into remission from leukemia. While cycling today we also found out that we exceeded our fundraising goal thanks to all of you.
