My Story

5 Apr 2018

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

Why? Because when the doctor says, "You have cancer", it shouldn't be a death sentence. It wasn't for me 17 years ago and I'd like to do a little something to pay it forward to all those people who donated money so that others could research the medicines and technologies that helped me beat cancer when I got the news.

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.

  • 3 Weeks away from the start of the Great Cycle Challenge
    10 May 2018

    Continuing to get in shape for June. 1,150 calories and 22.77 miles (increased resistance). That 1,200 calorie mark is going to be tough.

  • 1,100 calories and 23 miles in an hour. Is 1,200 in reach?
    26 Apr 2018

    ~10% increase means you're not in shape yet. It will be interesting to see if burning 1,200 virtual calories in an hour is possible.

  • Getting in shape for June!
    5 Apr 2018

    I've been lazy all winter and packed on the hibernation poundage but that's all about to change. I hit the gym today for a warm up ride in anticipation of being in shape for the June 1st start of the challenge. Here's a horrible picture of the bike when I finished. It's hard to read but it shows 920 calories and 19.51 miles (one hour duration). Next time I'll stop pedaling to get the picture.

    Getting in shape for June!
