My inspiration and dedication for this ride come from those who have survived cancer, and equally those who have not. In 2020, just after COVID emerged in Canada, I lost my friend Shigeo Tamagi to brain cancer. He was 51, and had a marvellous life, but that was tragically cut short. My friend, Chase Jones' Dad, Mike, battled pancreatic cancer, which was caught early; and he is doing well. And I am planning on riding the Tour de Cure with my friend, Brian Benson, who has survived cancer TWICE! And although not human, our dog Dexter was as close to human as they come - and we lost him to cancer in February. I lost my mother to cancer 25 years ago. Please help me fund research to fight this horrible disease and support me in the Tour de Cure!

I am planning on taking on the 160 km single day ride challenge route (equal to 100 miles). Although I rode 200 km in honour of Shig in 2020, I am recovering from a back injury still (herniated lumbar disc), so 160 km will be a real challenge for me this year!

Funds raised through the Tour de Cure will support life-saving research and enhancements to care at BC Cancer, bringing hope to cancer patients in British Columbia and making an impact around the world.

I thank you for consdiering a donation to support my efforts to help so many friends, family and strangers!
