My dad passed away due cancer in 1993, it’s been few years now, but I miss him everyday. I decided to do this epic ride to conquer cancer to help all the people who have this disease. Michelle’s uncle, her sister had it when she was toddler, and many others. I’ve join group “Dennis and Friends” … hopefully with the money raised we CAN cure cancer in our lifetime.
I killed it! I did the EPIC Ride in 2016, it was hard, no correction, it was FLIPPIN hard…but nothing is as hard as what people who endure the treatment for this horrible disease! Everyone I’ve spoken too, knows someone close to them that have been impacted by cancer :(
Completing the ride was a lot of fun! That feeling crossing the finish line with everyone cheering was worth it every pain on my body. My wish and goal is that we will find a cure in our life time! Inshallah (God willing)
I’ve join group “Dennis and Friends” again with many of my team mates from 2016: Louise, Gordon, Tarryn, Jill, Joan, Deb, Rachel and Michelle has also signed up!
Any support will be awesome, ideally I would like you to ride with me! Now I’m going to warn you, the ride is ‘no ride in the park’ or what we have done during my training ride in Stanley Park…it’s soooooo hard! But I did it, and if I could do it, anyone can do it, at 50 years I did finish it, I thought I was going to die near the end, and I almost threw the towel but my fiance Michelle and Denise convince me to go on and I’m so glad I did as after the last hill, it was all downhill and I clocked 57KM/H on my bike computer.
My fundraising goal is only $2500. You can help me reach that goal by making a donation on my behalf today. It only takes a second and your gift has the power to change lives for the better and maybe cure cancer in our life time.
