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.

Phil

  • This guy went ape over GCCC!
    29 Aug 2020

    On my ride today along the Flamborough Concession roads, I came across this guy monkeying around. He went ape when I told him I was cycling to save little lives. Now that I've got 430 km done, I'm sure my new friend would be simian-ly ecstatic if your friends were to donate to my ride.

  • The home stretch!
    25 Aug 2020

    Well, there's one week left in the official Great Cycle Challenge Canada. The response from my friends and family has been absolutely phenomenal. So much so that I've been inspired to stretch my distance goals twice already.

    The good news is that if you would still like to donate, there's still time. Visit my page today and help little lives.

    The home stretch!

    18 Aug 2020

    Another beautiful morning for a ride around the Concession roads. Took a right at Carlisle and rode through the sleepy little hamlet of Kilbride. Beautiful!

    16 Aug 2020

    Perfect morning for a long ride to the Hamlet of Mountsberg today. I even tackled three huge drumlins (hills) and was rewarded with a refreshing rain shower. Thanks again for your support. Spread the word to your friends and families. I'm not about to call it quits yet!

    All I can say is, wow!! Thank you to every one of my sponsors for being so incredibly generous. There was a huge outpouring of support of yesterday's Kick Cancer's Butt Day that rocketed me well past my fundraising goal and has currently netted more than $3700 for kids' cancer care!

    Well, that has just inspired me to keep on riding past my distance goal. I'm hopeful it will inspire other friends, colleagues and acquaintances to donate to this important cause - helping little lives.

    Thank you, again!!!

    Another great morning for a ride through Flamborough to Carlisle with a quick stop at where the grist mill stood in beautiful downtown Progreston (pictured here).

  • Another goal blown away!
    11 Aug 2020

    Inspired by the wonderful outpouring of support I've received in donations, just one week into the month-long challenge and I've already surpassed my distance goal. I'm doubling my original distance goal to 300 km and looking forward to more donations trickling in! Thank you, everyone!!

    (The photo is from my ride today that included this fabulous multi-use trail right through the heart of Waterdown.)

    Another goal blown away!

  • I can see SickKids from here!
    8 Aug 2020

    Well, it's somewhere in the haze off in the distance. This morning's ride took me around Waterdown and to this picturesque vista on the escarpment edge of Kearn's Road in Burlington. It was a fun ride down the hill through Tyandaga survey then along Plains Road to Snake Road to tackle the inevitable uphill climb back home. A beautiful 30k escarpment ride!

    I can see SickKids from here!

  • Almost half-way there!
    3 Aug 2020

    After a disappointing Day 2 with weather too unsettled to safely ride, I got in a nice ride today before the skies opened up. On Day 3 I'm already 48% into my distance goal. Looks like I may have to increase that goal! Maybe some more sponsorship action would inspire me! :)

    Almost half-way there!

    August came in like a...loon? Beautiful, majestic and iconically Canadian! Great morning to kick off my commitment to raising funds to help little lives. It was a beautiful ride to Carlisle & Progreston. Twenty-six km down and only 124 to go!

    Thanks so much for your support!
