Thanks Team!!

Thank you everyone for all your support and kind words!

We were a team of 92 today (so humbled by all of you choosing to help in the fight) as I completed the 130km ride course.

It was a great day to ride and the event went off amazingly.

Pretty happy (if tired!) after about 4 1/2 hours on the bike.

Thank you so much - all your support helped me get through some tough spots this year and I am looking forward to setting bigger goals for next year!

Cheers Kirk

5 Days to go!

Last big ride is done! 104km on Sat. 

Rest and recovery this week for the big effort on Sat.

Thank you everyone for your support! It has been fantastic and a great motivator.

My mind and heart will be full on Sat as I think of all the people I know affected by cancer and all of my supporters - it will provide that extra boost to make the hard kms go smoother.

Fingers crossed for great weather!

Thanks for your support!

On the home stretch!

Hello Everyone!

Training has been going well - I've had a few 100+km rides lately and I'm still here!

I had a stark reminder of how cancer affects us all as a friend of mine Ian Clark passed away at 49 on Aug 31. He leaves behind a wonderful family who will miss him dearly as well as a huge community of friends who were all fortunate to know him.

This brings home even stronger the need to have the best treatment here for patients at the QEII. There will be some angry hill training in my future as I know how unfair it is for kids to lose a parent and a spouse a loving partner.

Thank you for choosing to be a part of my team. Your support means a great deal to me and will have a positive impact for all of us in the fight against cancers here at home.

Cheers

Kirk

I'm fundraising for Ride for Cancer

One in two Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime.

I could not have imagined how profoundly cancer has influenced my life – and continues to impact it - as more people I know and love have to face this challenge.

My life has been profoundly influenced by the loss of 2 amazing women – Sarah Gordon, Joyce Boyce, a good friend, and the survival of 1 amazing young lady – Chloe Davis. Add to that this year my father and uncle on their own journeys with prostate cancer. Recently we lost an amazing cancer physician and leader who provided care to Sarah – Dr. Stephen Couban, to the disease he helped so many overcome.

I am choosing to ride for those in need today, and for those who will be in need tomorrow.

By supporting my ride you are joining the fight against blood cancers, will play a crucial role in purchasing a critical state-of-art cervical cancer diagnostic unit to stop cervical cancer in its tracks, and help bring Atlantic Canada’s first surgical robotic system to treat prostate cancer with more precision, faster, and decrease the chances of it advancing or recurring.

Think about that – we can prevent a woman from having cancer – a daughter, sister, mother – imagine how that would feel to a family - a woman you know or love - to hear that cancer had been stopped and they can live a full life – have children…… You can help make that happen!

We - you and I and our families deserve this. We have all been touched by cancer in some way.

Cancer is big and cancer journeys are never easy – so I have set a big goal. In my life I know the power of a team and what great teams can accomplish – I am asking you become part of my team on this journey. I smashed my goal last year with over 100 supporters and hope to do so again this year! (average gift was $100 - please consider that - however I am grateful for all donations - regardless of size!!)

Can we become 130 strong to match the 130km challenge I have set for myself?

Your donation today WILL make a difference for Atlantic Canadians facing a cancer diagnosis.

Thank you for your generosity!
