My Story

2 Jun 2022

My name is Michael Riley and I am honored to be taking part in this amazing event for a second year, and as a Champion Rider no less!

With $7,300 raised and 640Km ridden last year, I'm very excited to share my next big adventure for such an amazing cause.

This year I plan on going bigger, riding at least 1001 Km's and to raise $10,000 or more!

I'm so excited to take part for many, more years to come! And spread awareness of this event to as many people as possible.

Thank you everyone.

    “Well Hello, First let me say thank you so very much for your incredibly generous donation. Today I did my big ride that I planned for this event. It was from my house in Markham - Niagara Falls 177km over 10.5 hours. I recieved your donation notification while I was riding and had a doubble take. I had to stop my bike, beacuse I thought I must had read it wrong. Nope! I did not. WOW. The support for SickKids is amazing. Have a great night and weekend. Thank you again.”

    “This terrible disease has touched us all. Specifically, I lost my bother to cancer when he was 54 years old in 2012. Marcia has has a few very close family members on this journey. We also have numerous friends currently on this journey and doing very well thanks to the great work of People like Michael raising money to find cures or ways to improve the life of those on the journey. Marcia and I were pleased to donate $10,000 to PMH last year in honour of our dear friend Dave Lahey who conquered throat cancer only after a 'hail Mary' attempt with Immunotherapy. Immunotherapy is an example of what comes out of this great research. It worked for Dave. Its working for others. Thanks Michael for blazing the trail for the little tykes who have to take on this journey so early in their precious lives. With respect, admiration and gratitude, The Finlaysons”

    “Todd, Marcia, Adam, Carter Amanda, Joanie, Winnie, Bryn and Navy THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. I'm so incredibly proud to be apart of this amazing event. The support is like no other. Today I'm pleased to share that I have surpassed my $10,000 goal and with time to spare. I'm also on track to beat my 1000km goal. This has been one heck of a month. I've ridden in 35+ degree heat, crazy winds, torrential downpours, almost been hit by cars, I have ridden 10+ hours and 177 kms at a time and even to the US border. I've had bad sunburns and cuts and bruises and broken bike parts. But all of that is easy, easy compared to what these children go through ever moment of their day. I'm so proud that people like you, the Finlaysons support such amazing things. From me, my family and every single person at SickKids, Thank you. Have an amazing night. - Michael Riley. ”

I can't believe that with everyone's support I not only beat my goal of $10,000, but beat it by $5,900. 100% of the proceeds go directly to SickKids Cancer Research.
