I'll keep fundraising for kids with cancer so I can help someone before it's too late. This is in honor of you Ela.

My Story

29 Aug 2023

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

Why? Because for the last 7 yrs I have been riding in honor of Ela who unfortunately lost her battle with cancer this past yr. There are over 1,400 children 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.

So I am raising funds through my challenge to help kids like Ela by supporting the SickKids Foundation which allows them to continue their work in developing treatments and finding a cure for childhood cancer.

Please support me by making a donation to give these kids the brighter futures Kids that Ela deserved.

Your support will change little lives.

Thank you I truly appreciate all donations that will help me reach my goal.

Here's my personal impact over 7 years to fight kids' cancer and save little lives.
