I'm Riding For

Arlene Mulder Papaioannou and all the kids still fighting cancer

Arlene Mulder Papaioannou and all the kids still fighting cancer

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! . 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

19 Mar 2024

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

Why? Because right now, over 1,700 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 2023 surpassed my goal of $15,000, 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 Arlene, 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....$108,000 and counting over the last seven years! YOU all helped me achieve that, and for that I am forever grateful!

Your support will change little lives.

My Challenge

    14 Jun 2024

    I have been keeping busy with GCC things - mostly fundraising things! I’ve been out for a few shorter rides, but my main focus is always on fundraising as that’s what helps in the research and treatments!

    Yesterday was a fun day where we picked the winner of the Golf Dream package! I want to congratulate Dave Boersma, who stopped by to chat and purchased a spot on the wheel while I was set up at Your Independent Grocer! So as one fundraiser ends, the next one is almost ready to roll out!!!! It’s a fantastic package with quite a variety of fun stuff in it! Like to fly, got it; like to eat, got it; like adventure, yep got that too! Be watching for it next week and then get your name on this wheel for your chance to win a prize package worth over $1,200.00

    What a beautiful day to get out for a ride on this, National Bicycle Day. I went out for a ride, taking Oakie along to the highway and back. Then I stopped in at the house and picked up some flyers and continued on to bike around my town of Ingersoll. I chatted with a couple of people at Smith's Pond, who were fishing, got a donation, chatted some more before leaving and heading in another direction. Before heading home, I managed to sell another spot on the golf wheel, (you are NOT on the wheel yet???? there is still time to fix that) and then got home to see my brother had stopped in for a visit. We had a lovely visit - these are so important as there are just the two of us left now! Tonight I headed out for a bit in the car, and made a stop at another one of my peeps, who also came through with a donation for the cause. I am so impressed with all the people who support what I do. They get it.....no child should suffer from this disease.....they should be out playing and living their best lives.

    It's early in the day yet, so not much has happened, but I just want to share with you all that the GOLFER'S DREAM PACKAGE 2024 edition is ready now. The weather is great, the courses are ready, and I have a wonderful package to allow you a lot of golfing this season. While the hope is that YOU will be the winner of the package, it will always be the kids fighting cancer that are the BIG winners in all of these fundraisers! Check out the details on the flyer and then hurry on to get your name on the wheel. This fundraiser will only run until June 12, 2024, just in time for the winner to receive the passes before FATHER'S DAY. Why not get your name on the wheel, for a chance to win an awesome gift for your father, mother, brother, sister, significant other, or just enjoy it for yourself!!!!

    What a beautiful day to be out for a ride. The sun was out and not too much wind....perfect for getting in a training ride. I managed 18.5 kilometers today, riding to the highway and back, and then continuing on to add more kilometers. You never know where you end up, and today I biked through part of the local cemetery, "visiting" people who I was acquainted with but are no longer with us! And as always, I ride in Arlene's memory!

    Did you see the light show last night?…I didn’t either🥲! But getting a spot on the wheel for the SHOP LOCAL PLUS fundraiser could add some colour to your life! This is the last weekend to purchase a spot. Wheel spin happens May 16, 2024! And then…..

    A quick walk to Albert Heijn this morning.....they restocked their chocolate bars, so cashed in the scratch ticket, and purchased a few other things. Then walked back to the condo. Everything is very close by here, so the walks are rather short, but today was dry (so far) so good to go out for a short walk!

    Another of the few nice sunny days we have had while on vacation. The weather has not been the best, but we are making the most of the sunny days we have had. We went for a walk again this afternoon, and then sat outside and relaxed in the sunshine!

    This morning we went for a walk to the Albert Heijn in Oostende, Belgium, to pick up a few things for dinner tonight and to cash in scratch tickets, that, until Saturday, I had been throwing away because I didn't understand quite how they worked. Now I find out that the answer is actually right on the front of the ticket....you just have to pick the right answer!

I will call you and explain in person next trip out to town. I appreciate your support so much so together we can help the kids fighting cancer. It was great to have a little visit with you this morning as well!”
