    30 Jun 2017

    It's June 30th, and I got one last ride in to bring my total to 420km. Plus I got one last donation from a couple of folks at YVR, which will my total to $3559.21. Thanks again for all your support,...and congratulations to my teammate Rick Stadler for his accomplishments! But the bottom line, is that this is all about raising money to fund support in the fight to eliminate kids cancer. Every last penny helps,...so thank you all once again. It was a fun event to be involved with for sure!!

    Did 38 Km. this morning, which puts me at 407 Km. in total so far for the month of June. So,...I reached my distance goal, as well as my fund raising goal, which now sits at $3549.21. I'm not exactly sure where that $0.21 came from,....but it all goes to the same cause which is great!!!

    I want to thank all of the 46 individuals and couples who contributed to this very worthy cause. Myself, as well as all the kids are so deeply appreciative for your support. Your generosity will most definitely make a huge difference in the fight to find cures for this disease. The picture shows the list of contributors, as well as the name of those that "I Rode For" which accompanied me on each and every ride.

    The month is not over yet,....so there is still time to add to my distance,...as well as time to pad the fund raising total. What do you say!!

    Thank you all once again!

    Getting close. But I met a cancer survivor on my ride today,..and we rode together for about 1/2 of it. He thanked me profusely a number of times for raising funds for cancer research. He told me that he probably wouldn't be alive today if it wasn't for these kinds of events, and the research that they fund. Of course this event is for kids cancers,....and he was enthused to hear about it,....but it is also very touching and moving to meet someone whose life has been changed,...and saved through our efforts. Thanks for putting a face to why we do this Rick!!! And you are most welcome!!!

  • "Ride For" List
    2 Jun 2017

    I ask all donors if there is someone that they'd like me to "Ride For" on their behalf during the month of June. The list provides motivation, but also serves as a reminder of how many folks are touched by this horrible disease. Oh yea,....included on the list are Neave and Eliza.

    A picture of my new jersey, and the Ride For list after my first ride today!!!

  • Fund Raising Frenzy
    3 May 2017

    These past two weeks having been amazing. The response has been terrific. After each update that I have circulated, the donations have come pouring in. After an initial very modest goal of raising $500, I've increased that to $2500, as a result of the generous outpouring from friends, acquaintances and relatives. I'm not quite there yet,...but I know that it will happen. So keep it coming,...Please!! Thank you once again to all those who have supported this effort!! It is greatly appreciated!

    Cheers!

    I'm not doing the Ride to Conquer Cancer this year,...but this June, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!

    Why? Because the need is still there to raise money for cancer research. 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.

    My granddaughter Maddy was diagnosed with cancer when she was very young, but I am happy to say that she is a cancer survivor, and is thriving! However not all kids are so lucky, and that is why the need is still there for research in order to find cures!

    So I am raising funds through this challenge to help 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.
