I'm Riding For

Arlene Mulder Papaioannou

Arlene Mulder Papaioannou

This years ride is in memory of my daughter Arlene, who lost her fight in a battle against colon cancer in October 2018💔! While she was no longer a child, she was MY child! This year’s ride is also being dedicated to Baby Ellis (#Ellis Fights) . Please help me to reach my goal of $15,000 or more this year. I’m trusting that I can count on your support again this year....will YOU be the one that pushes my numbers over the top? You sponsor and I will do the biking!

My Story

14 Jul 2022

This year I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer again!

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.

My ride in 2021 surpassed my goal of $10,000, so this year my starting goal is $15,000 and will be adjusted as I get closer to my goal. I continue to bike in memory of my daughter, but this year I am dedicating my ride to our local hero, Baby Ellis (#Ellis Fights) (Ellis passed away in March 2022) and riding and fundraising for all those still in the fight. I am hoping that you will continue to support me by sponsoring. YOU SPONSOR AND I WILL DO THE BIKING! Please support me by making a donation to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

Please check out my previous years stats in the sidebar on the left bottom of the page....YOU all helped me achieve that and for that I am forever grateful!

Your support will change little lives.

My Challenge

  • October 7, 2022
    7 Oct 2022

    Well today was such a fun day...we explored an area of Friesland where hubby's parents and grandparents grew up. We biked 34.9 kilometers (on electric bikes as it was super windy along the canals and out in the open). We stopped at a nice little bakery were they had too many delicacies to choose from, so the lady behind the counter offered to bring us our coffee outside on the terrace and would choose for us. She came out with our coffees and had picked out five different items and cut them in half, so we got to check out a variety of what they had to offer. We continued on our journey back to the bike rental place, which is a stone's throw from our B and B. The afternoon we went back to Burgum to visit with our friends were we enjoyed a take out dinner of fries and frikandels. More coffee after dinner and then found our way back to the B and B. All in all, it was as fantastic day!

    31 Aug 2022

    Today is the last day of the GCC challenge for this year! Bittersweet as GCC is a huge part of my life to raise funds for the cause of childhood cancer, but sad that the need still exists!😭. I have met my riding goals for the year, and you all have helped me raise an enormous amount of money for the cause this year. For this I am forever humbled and grateful! I plan to return for my seventh year riding and fundraising next year, so be watching for the fundraisers beginning early in the new year! For now, THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT FOR A CAUSE THAT MEANS A LOT TO ME! LOVE ❤️ TO ALL AND SEE YOU IN THE NEW YEAR!

  • GCC 2022 - Day 29
    30 Aug 2022

    Today was a busy day delivering jam, a coffee visit with a former neighbour who moved away and then a lovely lunch with a cousin! Always fun catching up with relatives I don’t see often. Then a quick trip home to do some banking and remembered a donation still “out there”. Stopped in to see the gentleman and voila, one more donation! But now I think I’m tapped out and any further donations would be a surprise for me! I am pleased with GCC 2022 efforts and thank all of you who have helped me with this! I appreciate each and every one of you. Again GCC has been a fantastic experience but now I need to shift my focus for a bit! There are just a few loose ends to tie up yet but then it’s over for the year for me! Come January I hope to start on fundraising for GCC 2023 so be watching for some fundraisers at that time!
