My Story

23 Jul 2022

July 23, 2022

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.

    “Thank You from the bottom of my heart for the generous donation. The bike ride into South Baymouth this morning was my first big ride this year. Approximately 23 km. The GCC app is not working just right yet, but will be up and running by August when the ride starts. It may look that I biked a lot further than I did. Kids should be living life, having fun, not fighting cancer. Your donation means the world to me and kids with cancer. Hugs Mom ”

    “Dear Keith & Kathy: It was wonderful to see you this evening. I never stop when I am cycling because I don’t want to mess with recording my ride. I am glad that I stopped and want you to know that my Keith had a lovely bowl of cereal with pineapple and yogurt for supper, when I finally got home. He had been terribly neglected while I have been cycling in the Great Cycle Challenge, but like me he has not lost a pound. When I started cycling in GCC, 1400 kids were diagnosed each year with cancer, now the statistics state that 1700 are now diagnosed each year in Canada. This is not good and we need to keep working for a cure. Thank you again for your generous donation. We appreciate your generosity. Sincerely Barbara”

Grandma appreciates your donation and the kids with cancer and their families appreciate it even more. I have been blessed that my kids and grandkids have not had to deal with cancer. Cancer is a word we never want to hear. Thanks for helping these kids. Hugs and love. Grandma Barb.”
