My Story

15 Jul 2022

Once again I'm a proud participant in the Great Cycle Challenge Canada. This is my fifth year, my mission continues, sadly the battle against childhood cancers is not over. I ride to support these kids. I ride to support SickKids Foundation and ensure they can continue their work in providing care, developing treatments and finding a cure for ALL childhood cancers. We also need to ensure these kids know they aren't alone in their battle. The Great Cycle Challenge riders are an 'army' across Canada fighting for them.

This year I have chosen to join Team Addy as I cycle throughout August. In October 2021, Addy was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer called Angiosarcoma. Her disease progressed, went into palliative care at home with her family during her final days. Sadly, Addy didn't make it to the start of our cycling journey. She passed away on July 10th. This young 14-year-old fought with strength and bravery throughout her courageous cancer journey. She deserved to live her life, not battle for it. This team will show Addy and her family that her memory will live on and she will never be forgotten.

Please consider supporting my efforts by making a donation and spreading the word to family, friends, colleagues and acquaintances. No donation is too small. Every dollar helps! Together lets help give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

Together we can change the destiny of these little lives.

Thank you.

Although you’re usually zipping along much faster than me, hopefully I’ll see you on one of my rides long enough to thank you in person.

Your fundraising efforts, the training you have done in preparation of riding the Cycle of Life Tour...AMAZING! You should be so proud of yourselves! Not at your caliber but will try to get set for August, hopefully the temperatures won't be excessively high, and meet me goals.

    “Michelle and Craig, Thank you so much for sponsoring my riding efforts for the Great Cycle Challenge Canada. Throughout the month I rode for 24/31 days to reach to surpass my 1000 km distance goal. I rode 1201 kms. Thanks to you, being sponsors, I raised $1817 of my fundraising goal. As of today, a team of over 15,000 Canadians rode 2,859,241 kms throughout the month in support of SickKids Foundation raising $8,061,402. These statistics will continue to grow as the last of the riders log their rides and supporters continue to contribute $’s through September. I hope you've enjoyed a wonderful summer and hopefully I'll see you around some time to thank you in person. Cheers! ”
