Support My Ride to Conquer Cancer™

Greetings! If you're reading this I'll assume you got here either by responding to an email, following a link on one of my blogs, or maybe you were referred here by someone else. However you got here - Welcome! Thanks for stopping by.

I've enjoyed cycling both as a way to get to work and a recreation for about the last 6 years. Recently, I decided my cycling should count for more than just my enjoyment and good health. It would be great if it could also contribute to bettering the lives of others.

My father lost his life to colon cancer some time ago, a little while before that my brother had his right arm amputated when cancer was discovered in his shoulder. It seemed only logical then to use my love of cycling to contribute to the fight against this all too common disease.

The Ride to Conquer Cancer benefiting Princess Margaret Hospital is a cycling journey from Toronto to Niagara Falls - a distance of over 200 km. It will be a challenge in a number of ways, but with my bike, my helmet, and your generosity, a real impact will be made!

I'm asking you to contribute to this history-making event with a donation. Funds raised in The Ride to Conquer Cancer will support breakthrough research, exemplary teaching, and compassionate care at Princess Margaret Hospital, Canada’s leading cancer research hospital.

Thank you in advance for your support.

A Physical Challenge
Well, I've started sending out the emails and I know many of you will respond. thanks very much.

But there's something not in the emails that you need to know. This year is going to be even tougher for me due to a physical challenge that has cropped up.

A while ago i torn my achilles tendon in an accident while helping out with community theatre. The surgery was performed a few days ago and now I'm waiting to see how things are going. Even in best pof all possible outcomes, rehabilitation is going to be long and hard.

But I am detrenmined not to let it interfere with the Ride to Conquer Cancer. After all others have completed the ride with one leg. Certainly I can with one and a half or more.

But I have faith. And so do many others praying for me. If your so inclined I would ask you to pray for me as well. Pray that the tendon heals completely and I'm strong enough to complete the Ride when the time comes.

Thanks everyone. See you next time.

Start of a New Journey
The 2008 Ride to Conquer Cancer was an incredible experience. I knew that I would make it, but I was surprised at how 'Not' tired I was.

Now we start the journey to Niagara Falls in 2009. This time I'm not going alone. kortright Church has been my spiritual home for over a decade now and so I have decided to start Team Kortright.

As of today we have our first Team member - Brian Watson. A great guy and one of my most ardent supporters in the 2008 Ride. I look forward to training and riding with him.

The 2009 journey has begun.
