I'm Riding For

Children fighting cancer

My Story

9 Jun 2024

This August, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer! My goal is to ride 1,000 km during the month of August, and to raise $33,134. This amount will put my three year total at $100,000. I will be making a $5,000.00 donation during August on Kicking Cancer's Butt day when donations have historically been generously matched.

I am undertaking this Challenge because I see the joy grandchildren bring to many of my friends, and want to help find a cure. Right now, over 1,400 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.

So I am raising funds through my challenge to help these kids and support SickKids Foundation to allow them to continue their work in developing treatments and finding a cure for childhood cancer.

I will be asking for your support at a later date to help give these kids the brighter futures they deserve. Stay tuned for future updates.

Your support will change little lives.

Thank you.
