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.

Michael

  • Did it anyway!!!
    21 Jun 2018

    So I tried by different means to set up a group ride but to no avail!!! Irregardless, my buddies came out to do a support ride which I am grateful that they did!!! Maybe others would have joined but it was not from a lack of trying on my part!!! It would be nice to get that badge because it is not my fault that it never got put on the site!!!

  • Trying to create a group ride!!!
    11 Jun 2018

    So I tried creating a group ride last week and I could not. It kept coming up with an error so I emailed to see if I could get some help and nothing has happened yet so I am going to do it here. Not as effective but it will have to do!!!

    So June 20 at 1:30 pm Atlantic Standard Time, me and 3 of my friends, who are doing this to give me their support, will be taking off from 5 (Rue) Maillet Street!!! We will be biking to St. Leonard Catholic Church. Majority of the ride will be on the River Valley Scenic Drive (old transcanadienne ) with a detour going to Smith Road toward Davis road back to River Valley Scenic Drive!!! On our return we will take a short hop unto the new Transcanada Highway! With a break at the church this ride roughly takes 4.5 to 5 hours! This is not a race so if you want to join us we can stop more often or at any point you can turn around!!! Feel free and welcomed to join us!!!

  • Day 3 Sad Day of Challenge
    3 Jun 2018

    Today in my challenge I did a beautiful road ride up to Lac-Temiscouata in Degelis!!! The ride up was gorgeous and uneventful!!! Coming back down I got a little to focused on pushing myself a little harder and was not paying attention to the road in front of me. Out of nowhere a mother duck and her ducklings came out from under a guard rail just as I was upon them and I ran over one of the ducklings. I am not a vegan, vegetarian nor a hunter but I could not help but be heart broken at the fact that I killed a duckling. I cried at the loss at my hands of such an innocent unsuspecting baby duck. I know some will say it is just an animal but I could not help but feel anger with myself at not paying closer attention to the road ahead more. Maybe I could of had the opportunity at seeing this family cross the road together had I been more aware. It got me thinking of the children we are trying to raise donations for and how they are Innocent and unsuspecting of the disease that takes over such a large part of their lives as well as their parents who at times must feel helpless at not being able to stop their child from going through such an ordeal. I can't even begin to imagine how they all feel!!! Here is hoping and praying that the donations collected can help in some way to give some relief through your journey!!! I am throwing out a challenge to those who have not yet donated, please help us help these kids and their families, we would appreciate the same if it were ours!!! No amount is to small, IT ALL ADDS UP!!! Respect, Love & Peace!!!

  • Humbled!!!
    4 May 2018

    So since I have registered for the Great Cycle Challenge, I have been humbled by the morale support of the kids we are biking for as well as the support of people who give what they can to a cause that knows no boundaries!!! This has inspired me to up my challenge from 500 km to 800 km and have accepted 3 specific challenges of biking routes that some of the donators have challenge me with!!! Inspired by their donations and the humbling encouragement of the kids I felt compelled to raise my goal!!! Thank you to all for tremendous support and respect!!!
