I'm Riding For

Denise Frechette

Denise was my grandmother, and a hero to me. She gave selflessly and always found the positive in every situation. She had a passion for travel, the arts and cuisine. I gained much of my passion for culinary by cooking side by side with my grandmother. Among the many things she taught me in the kitchen, she also taught me much about life. Helping others in need was something she always advocated. Her cancer was misdiagnosed, and when it was found, it claimed her life in 4 weeks. I ride in her name, together we are going the distance to raise as much money as we can for a cure for cancer.

My Story

12 Jun 2018

This June, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer! I have pledged to ride over 1000km to raise money that will be used for treatments to save young lives!

Cancer affects many people and it is a painful, destructive illness.

Over 1,400 children are diagnosed with cancer every year, and it's the biggest killer of children from disease in Canada.

All life is precious and valuable, and children should have a chance to experience this wonderful gift.

I am raising funds through my challenge to help these children 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 many young lives.

Thank you.

  • Halfway there, Hard Push!!
    17 Jun 2018

    Less than half the month remains, and it has been quite a challenge thus far!

    I have found that utilizing the convenience of the gym has been a huge asset in achieving my goals. I can ride nearly 35km in a stationary bike in 70 minutes.. anyone who has visited Halifax has probably noticed, consciously or subconsciously, that the city is littered with hills.

    Riding on the winding streets up and down quickly changing elevations reduces the efficiency of each peddle stroke. In the same 70 minutes cruising the streets instead of cycling at the gym, my distance is shaved down to 20ish km.

    The biggest obstacle in completing this challenge has been time.. making sure to set aside 1-2 hours every day in an already very busy lifestyle is no small task.

    And now I’m on a flight to Kansas City for 5 days of research in bbq food and craft beer!

    The plot gets thicker!

    I’ll have to push, sluggishly, through hang over and meat sweats.. begrudgingly getting past the hesitation and into the zone, never forgetting my purpose in this challenge.

    Thank you to all that support me, together we’re fighting to save the ones we love! Saving life!
