I'm Riding For

Johannesburg (Johanne)

Johannesburg (Johanne)

She was a force to be reckoned with. Strong, beautiful, smart and tenacious. She lived life colorfully. Mom died of cancer 5 years ago. A 5 year fight against ovarian cancer. In my eyes she still wins. She left a legacy.

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.

Simone

  • Getting excited to start my ride...
    13 Jun 2020

    I am chomping at the bit. I am so pumped to see all the amazing support from people all over Canada. I am overwhelmed by people leaning in with me. I am half way to my goal and mom is looking down going, "you are almost there Simone, impressive."

    Had a dream with her in it last night, dont remember it.much just that she encouraged in some fashion. Like anything in this life we are not alone. We are family in one way shape or form. I chose to lean in and be part of these families, cuz we can make a difference.
