My Story

This September, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids' cancer!

Why? Because right now, cancer is the biggest killer of children from disease in the United States. Over 15,700 children are diagnosed every year, and sadly, 38 children die of cancer every week.

Kids should be living life, not fighting for it.

So I am raising funds through my challenge to help these kids and support Children's Cancer Research Fund to allow them to continue their work to develop lifesaving treatments and find a cure for childhood cancer.

Please support me by making a donation to give these kids the brighter futures they deserve.

Your support will change little lives.

Thank you.

Jeffery

My Challenge

  • Final Ride For The Great Cycle Challenge, 1,105 Miles!!
    30 Sep 2022

    This is the final day, and I've done my final ride for #GCCUSA with a total of 1,105 miles and 32,713' of elevation gain over that period. (I thought I'd throw the elevation part in just for fun!)

    This has been another truly successful year of participating and raising funds for Children's Cancer Research! Cancer touches everyone's life at some point, in some way, but let's give kids a chance at living life by supporting this wonderful cause!

    While today is the official last day of the challenge, my page will be open, and donations are accepted thru the end of October.

    A heart felt thank you to all of you that have supported my efforts thru your donations, your kind words of encouragement and of those that kept me company on my rides!! Until next year!!

    Final Ride For The Great Cycle Challenge, 1,105 Miles!!

  • Goals Attained!!!
    28 Sep 2022

    So, a lot has been accomplished since my last post. The goals that I had established at the beginning of the challenge have been attained, but we can still do more.

    I've been busy accumulating the miles that I've pledged and often in the good company of others. A number of my outside rides were done with my girlfriend Claude both in Canada and the USA. While in Canada we crossed paths with her neighbor and his friends, so Alain, Mathieu and Nicolas joined me for part of a ride. After that back in the US, my friend Doug joined Claude and I to go around a portion of Lake Champlain between NY & VT.

    My friend Andrew from Scotland joined me for a number of virtual rides on Rouvy and I was also joined by my friend Silvia from the Netherlands.

    One of the best rides was when I finally crossed the 1,000 mile mark. A virtual ride on Rouvy was organized and I was in the terrific company of Andrew from Scotland, Jon from England and Silvia from the Netherlands. It was Silvia's suggestion that we all choose the same jersey for our virtual ride! What a great way to achieve my mileage goal in great company!!! By the way, I've met 2 of these 3 people in person! Check out the screenshots I posted for that ride!

    While all goals have been achieved, I am still adding more miles. Donations are accepted thru the end of October, so please help support Children's Cancer Research so that kids have a better chance at life!!

    Goals Attained!!!

This morning I'll be riding outside with my gf (not sure of the distance yet, but maybe around 70K), and then again tomorrow with her and 2-3 other friends to do a portion around Lake Champlain for about another 100K. That'll leave me about 500k. We'll have to try and hookup next riding season. It would be a real pleasure to get out for a ride together. Thanks again!”
