My Story

21 Apr 2018

This June, 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.

You can help too by donating to this cause. 10 cents for every kilometer may not seem like much, but the smile on a healthy child's face that results from it is priceless.

    What a nice couple! This handsome young man and his wife Eileen were out celebrating her birthday when they noticed our jerseys. Once they knew what we were fundraising for they couldn't help but donate. Big big thanks and hope you have a wonderful birthday!

    It was a cool day but well worth the trip.

    At our lunch stop I met Don and Kelly Pike from Ontario. Their daughter works for the Sick Kids hospital and she said so many Newfoundland children go there for treatment. And she donated $20. Kismet!

    4 Jun 2019

    Wow!

    It has been a wild ride - no, really!

    Another 25k in Chris Martin's spin.

    She did speedwork just for me.

    :)

    Can hardly wait until the weather improves for an outdoor ride.

    If cycling to a lighthouse on a sunny day doesn't do it for you, what will?

    Great group who helped make the kilometers pass by quickly. Great to see my buddy Rosie who is also cycling for the Challenge. So pumped and June has just begun!

    Great Cycle Challenge

    This is the day to remember those we've lost, honor those who are fighting to survive and celebrate your efforts to ride 300km next month in the 2019 Great Cycle Challenge.

    Because right now, over 1,400 children are diagnosed with cancer every year in Canada.

    Kids should be living life, NOT fighting for it.

    Now, let's get started...

    Next month, I am riding in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer. My goal is to pedal 300km...and my challenge starts NEXT WEEK.

    Why am I doing this? Because cancer is the biggest killer of children from disease in Canada.

    Please support my challenge to end childhood cancer and save little lives by making a donation through my fundraising page:
