Our father Harry Van Dyk

My Story

9 Apr 2024

This August, we are taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!

Our father was a multiple year participant, and always pushed himself to get his distance in despite his own personal health issues. Cancer research, specifically children's was dear to his heart.

Our Father was diagnosed in early 2016. A story that always stood out to us about how he decided to do the cycle challenge.

During one of the first chemo sessions my father had. He saw a child that had clearly been sick for quite sometime. My father remarked to his mother, our grandmother, "what I'm doing is not hard, what they are doing is hard they have their whole life ahead of them still". It was this realization that made him choose to do the great cycle challenge.

With this in mind we felt that a great way to honour Harry was to participate ourselves this year, and try and raise as much as we can.
