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.

  • Super Heroes Jersey
    29 May 2018

    I was excited to receive the "Super Heroes" jersey yesterday, for reaching the $2500 plateau. But although I get the opportunity to wear it, it's actually all those who donated who are the true super heroes. Without all your support, reaching that level would not be possible. So I proudly wear it honour of all of you, and for those who I'll be riding for next month on your behalf.

    I raised my goal to $2500, and have surpassed that and sit at just over $3000. Thank you all once again,...but I figure, why stop there,...so I'll be raising it once again, this time to $3500. And who knows, I may have to do it again.

    Thank you one and all,....and the kids thank you as well!!!

    Cheers!

  • One Month To Go
    29 Apr 2018

    Only one month to go, and I'm getting close to my goal,....so let's make sure that I can achieve it. But I need your help, so let's do it for the kids. As you can see from my new picture, I'm now sporting this year's ride jersey, which is quite dashing, wouldn't you say!

    Let's make this happen,...OK!!!

  • Peloton Club
    3 Apr 2018

    Just to let you know,.....I will be receiving my Great Cycle Challenge jersey later this month, as a result of reaching the $500 plateau. And over an above that, due to your very generous donations to date, I have reached the $1000 raised so far,....and am now a proud member of the "Peloton Club".

    But the work is only partly done as far as my fund raising campaign. I have now upped my goal to $2000, and the fight to find a cure for this horrible disease continues. So thank you so much for those who have donated so far,.....and if you can find it in your heart to contribute to this very worthy endeavour, myself and the kids will be forever grateful!

    Thanks,...and we'll talk again soon!

  • Personal Update
    6 Mar 2018

    Hi;

    This June, I am taking part once again 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 the SickKids Foundation to allow them to continue their work in developing treatments and finding a cure for childhood cancer.

    My partner from last year, Rick Stadler, have formed a new team called "Codgers for Kids - Mission Possible". Because we do think that with your support, finding a cure is a real possibility.

    Please support me by making a donation to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve. https://greatcyclechallenge.ca/Riders/PatBrand

    But having said that, I understand that there are many very worthwhile organizations out there asking for financial assistance as well, and folks can only give so much. If you are donating to some other charity, that's great, and thanks for doing so.

    You can also get involved by participating in this event - "The Great Cycle Challenge - Canada". It's easy to do, you set your own goals - https://greatcyclechallenge.ca/. If you have any questions about the organization, or about how to get involved, please feel free to contact me.

    Never forget, Your Support Will Change Little Lives.

    Thank you.
