Why I Ride
Next to my love of cycling, riding in this year's Cycle of Life Tour - my first! - has two special places in my heart.
For my day-job, I'm lucky to work at Victoria Hospice in Communications. Every day I see the amazing work our staff and volunteers do to bring comfort and care to patients and families. Everyone who walks those halls - and hospices across Vancouver Island - are true angels on earth.
However, my ride will also be a ride dedicated to a very special woman - my mother. In 2009, we lost her to cancer. However, if it wasn't for an amazing team of palliative care doctors and nurses our time with her would have been cut even shorter. I am eternally grateful for the chance I had to properly say goodbye to someone who means so much to me.
Due to COVID-19, the ride is looking a little different this year! However, I'm still hopping on my bike to raise much-needed funds for our local hospices. My goal this year is to break the "Century" mark...twice!
On the weekend of July 24th, my goal is to ride 200km! 120 km in a day, 80 the next? Whatever the numbers, this dad-bod will get to the 200 to help keep hospice care in motion!
It’s a cause I believe in. Vancouver Island hospices provide end-of-life palliative care, counselling, bereavement support, and at-home care to over 12,000 patients and family members each year. Despite the value of their services, none are fully funded by the health care system. The care and comfort they provide is only possible because of generous community support.

Well, besides jumping on a tandem bike and making sure my legs don't give out the weekend of the 24th, help me hit my goal of $5,000 raised!
