I am participating in the 2020 Tour De Rock to support the mission of the Canadian Cancer Society. I was a team rider in 2007 and throughout the Tour De Rock's 23 years, I have been a constant supporter of the tour, and the reason behind it. I have shaved my head, dyed my hair, helped with training other team members, been a member of the support crew for tours, attended many fundraising events, donated funds and time, and sat on committees organising the tours and events.
Over the years I have had family and friends battle cancer, some lost the battle. With four sons of my own, I cannot imagine how cancer would affect me, my wife, or my boys. I am excited to be a part of this years adapted tour in an effort to raise more funds and hopefully make the lives of our young friends better during their battle.
I have been a member of the Saanich Police since 1995 and am proud to continue supporting this cause, and represent Saanich throughout Vancouver Island every year with the Tour De Rock.
The money raised from this event helps fund leading-edge cancer research that is improving cancer treatments, preventing cancer and saving lives; provide reliable and up-to-date information on cancer, risk reduction and treatment; offer vital community-based support services for people living with cancer and their families; and advocate for healthy public policies.
Please pledge me and help me reach my fundraising goal! Every pledge shows families who have a child with cancer that they do not have to face it alone. Online pledging is secure and it saves the Canadian Cancer Society by reducing administrative costs.
Thanks for your support!
