Our Challenge

  • Week Three, success achieved but we will keep on cycling!
    23 Aug 2022

    What a great day for Team Pedal Pack. We are in the fourth week and today met our fundraising goal! Hurray!

    As of today, our sponsors have donated $2,523.85, meeting our goal of $2500! We are so grateful to you all for your generous donations!

    And even though we have also met our cycling goal of 500 kms, with 544 kms logged to date, we will keep biking for this cause until the last possible day, August 31st!

    Perhaps next year, we will have to increase our goals!

    Thank you again for your support this month, for cheering us on, and for donating to this cause. This is why we ride . . . to raise funds to find cures and treatments for kids cancers.

    The kids thank you. Their families thank you. And we, the riders of Team Pedal Pack (Sue, Bharat and me), thank you!

    22 Aug 2022

    There are just 11 days left to go in the official August challenge!

    By the end of Week 3, together across Canada we have pedalled 1,879,182 kilometres and raised $7,273,857 (so far) to fight kids' cancer...

    🍁 Let's bring it home Canada! 🍁

    Team Pedal Pack is also doing so well. We have met our cycling goals (hurray!!!!) and haved raised $2,399.65 against our goal of $2500... just $100.35 to go!

    Across Canada, participants in this challenge will keep riding and — of course! — asking for your support to bring it home STRONG for these brave kids. 💛

    This week, we are dedicating our ride to 12-year-old Hana. You can read Hana’s story here: https://greatcyclechallenge.ca/Pages/About/the-kids/meet-hana

    I invite you to donate for kids like Hana on the Team Pedal Pack sponsorship page (where you can choose a rider to support, or support the team as a whole):

    We're riding for the kids, supporting them in our collective efforts to #KickKidsCancersButt!

  • Week 2 update
    16 Aug 2022

    Week 2 is DONE!

    Our team is so grateful and inspired by all those supporting this year’s Great Cycle Challenge Canada, contributing by cycling and/or donating to #kickkidscancersbutt.

    We are 14 days into the challenge, and collectively across Canada we have pedalled 1,309,931 kilometres and raised $6,904,834 to fight kids' cancer !!!!!!!

    And Team Pedal Pack — Sue Ratcliffe, Bharat Gupta and Della Ratcliffe — is keeping pace with our goals!

    In our first 14 days we have:

    raised $2,244.40 (90% of our goal!)

    and

    cycled 337 kms (67% of our goal)

    That is incredible! Our riders and sponsors ROCK!

    And we're not slowing down! The challenge continues to August 31!

    These kids aren't giving up, and neither are we. 🧡

    And we invite you to join our efforts with a donation!

    We do this for the kids… and we know they will appreciate your contributions!

    This August, Pedal Pack is participating again in the Great Cycle Challenge 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.

    Cancer has touched so many families, and we in Team Pedal Pack believe kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

    We ride for the kids!

    We are raising funds through this challenge to help these kids and support the SickKids Foundation to allow them to continue their work in developing treatments and finding a cure for childhood cancer.

    Please support us by making a donation — or joining Team Pedal Pack — to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

    Your support will change little lives.

    Thank you.

    Della, Sue, Chelsea & Bharat
