I’m Joining the Fight Against Cancer


Cancer has impacted the lives of almost every Canadian in one way or another and many have felt the heartbreak of losing a family member, friend, or loved one to this terrible disease.  2 in 5 Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetime and 25% of all Canadians will die from cancer.  


But stats only tell part of the story.  Imagine sitting next to a family member when they hear the heart-wrenching words "you have cancer".  Imagine the real-life scenario of holding the hand of a loved one while they suffer through yet another chemotherapy treatment.  Or even worse, imagine being by the side of the most important person in your world when cancer takes another life.  It happens far too often and it is time to make a change, to make a difference, and I am going to join the fight.  


On Saturday, October 1st of this year I will ride in a one-day, 100km cycling event to raise funds to help change the face of cancer care and to be one of many who say "no more, it is time to make a difference".  I will be riding alongside a community with one common goal: to transform cancer care!  This year will be extraordinary…our BMO Ride for Cancer community is all in and you can be a part of the change!  


By supporting my ride, you are joining a community of champions who are funding the fight against cancer today and for future generations.  Be a difference-maker, be a champion, and help to make a difference for your loved ones and the loved ones of others.

Matching Day...

Well what a difference the generosity of the Wadih Fares Family Foundation has already made thanks to today's $1 for $1 matching program.  In the last two hours I have received eight donations totalling $507.  That is $1,014 that will go towards cancer care and making a difference in the life of countless Atlantic Canadians :-)!  Thank you everyone!

Thank You So Much…

To everyone who has so generously donated to this journey.  Thanks to your donations WE as a group are now 8th on the fundraising board out of almost 1,500 riders.

Your support is such a wonderful motivator 😌

You Folks Are Amazing!!

In less than six hours an amazing group of people have already donated more than $1,000 :-o!!

Thank you so much!

Still Alive...

I knew my training had to start early in the year if I am going to ride 100km in October.   I just didn't think it would start in 2* weather on a Sunday morning...

It was a sign of things to come I guess, Monday brought a snowstorm. 

Thank you to my Supporters
