My Story

5 Jun 2024

This August, I'm riding 1300 km in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!

In 1980, at the young age of four, I was diagnosed with a canerous brain tumour

With hope, faith and determination, l battled with friends and family at my side. This fact alone does not define me, however it is an imporant part of my and the experience has helped me develop individually. I am a survivor and even though I was left with a weak right side and developed epilespsy, I am here today to share my story and to use my strenghts towards and excellent foundation.

I have a soft spot in my heart for for kids with cancer and I am determined to make my kilmetres count! Jarrod Russell is the #1 fundraiser of ALL TIME in Canada and the #2 fundraiser across the WORLD throughout the history of Great Cycle Challenge. He is UNSTOPPABLE!

He’s back again in 2024 is riding his recumbent bike for the 9th year in a row, and get this…over the last 8 years, Jarrod has ridden a total of 9394km and raised an incredible

Total over $240,000 of to fight kids’ cancer! No words…

Childhood cancer is a cause is close to his heart. Jarrod was diagnosed with a brain tumor at 4 years old and while he beat it (woohoo!), he is still dealing with treatment side-effects of epilepsy and partial paralysis to this day…but that won’t stop him riding to help other kids win their personal battle with cancer…RESPECT. 🙌

Jarrod, you are an inspiration to both our kids and our riders, THANK YOU for all you do!

Over to you GCC peeps, you know what to do…we can’t let someone like Jarrod go unnoticed (let’s give him some love!). 😉
