ALL FRIENDS AND FAMILY FIGHTING CANCER

My Story

31 May 2019

This June, I am taking part for the 4th consecutive year of 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. I am dedicating each ride to a specific person who has fought or lost their battle or one of the kids battling cancer currently.

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.
