I'm Riding For

In memory of Andrew

In memory of Andrew

For my son, Andrew, who fought nasopharyngeal cancer with so much strength and grace, and for so long. "Memories last a lifetime."

My Story

This August, 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.

Patricia

  • Another GCC done! See you next year!
    31 Aug 2020

    I finished my cycling pledge of 200 km pretty much where I started - along my favourite trails near the Ottawa River. A special thank you to those who had faith in me and donated so generously to this important cause. Enjoy the beauty of the world around you and I look forward to seeing you again next year!

    Another GCC done!  See you next year!

  • Under 10 km to go...
    25 Aug 2020

    Closing in on my pledge of 200 km and I find myself yearning to get out on my bike and do the same 10 km route most days. I see the same 12 deer on my route pretty much each day, and I am beginning to think I will carry on cycling this route even when I have completed this challenge. A big thank you to all the generous donors! Love my Trek!

  • An RC lesson for my little friend
    12 Aug 2020

    Today my 7 y.o. friend joined me in my ‘100 km done’ cycle! We cycled down a logging road over to the best little remote control airstrip in the Valley! Lucky for us a pilot was there putting together his plane so we got quite a lessons. Wednesday evenings around 5 pm or so, this club offers free trial lessons to budding pilots! My buddy found every mud puddle around so drive his bike right down to our beach and into the water to ‘wash up’. Brings back memories of my own 5 boys!

  • Heart and Soul in Dunrobin
    6 Aug 2020

    Short ride today with like-minded friends. Stopping for brunch at the fabulous Heart and Soul. Owners Jody and Jim are pillars of the community - helping all during the devastation from the tornado that ripped through the community even though they also lost their own gift shop. Best breakfast and service in the Valley!

  • 50 km DONE - thanks grandkids!
    5 Aug 2020

    Two of my grandkids cycled with me on this auspicious day... after we had a successful day of geocaching! We found 3 caches: a small, a micro and a nano AND 2 trackables!

    We cycled from the park to home!

    50 km DONE - thanks grandkids!

    4 Aug 2020

    Touring from the best Christmas Tree farm to Andrew’s bench in the Conservation Area, I traveled through the beautiful tiny village of Galetta. A village with 4 bridges (I traversed 3 as the 4th is for trains) over the Mississippi River!

    The rain held off until the last 3 km - and then it poured with T&L!

    3 Aug 2020

    Cycled past our recent neighbourhood FUNdraiser this morning while on my 10.3 km route. We were all invited to throw, dribble, spatter, or brush paint on a big board. Such a satisfying activity and all done with COVID rules intact! AND... money raised went to our local food bank. A special board!

    30 Jul 2020

    I am a proud member of A’s Rural Ramblers team - and we are ready to ride during the month of August!

    The 5 of us met at Andrew’s bench in Morris Island Conservation Area for a Covid 19 photo op. What do you think?
