Fun Fact About Me

I might not remember your name but will remember everything about your bicycle.
I have been fixing bikes for 43 years. I have watched kids grow up, become parents, have kids and they grow up and have kids. That is what keeps my business going three generations of bike riders. WOW I am getting old

I not only volunteer for the National Kids Cancer Ride, but also for the Heartland Tour; a local tour that cycles in different areas of Nova Scotia promoting a healthy lifestyle by biking or exercising regularly. This tour has changed my health and got me back to riding my bike again.

I live with dog Spencer (Australian Shepard) also third generation, Benji, Andy and now Spencer

Why am I volunteering?

In 2015 my closest friend was a National Rider and he told me, they might be looking for bike mechanic, so I signed up. This was my first exposure to childhood cancer. All the stories I heard from parents and friends was overwhelming. I met the most amazing children fighting cancer and the most amazing riders and volunteers. They dedicated their lives to helping in any way they can to help these children who need us by raising money and travelling across Canada to bring awareness to this amazing cause. I knew in 2015 before we made it all the way across Canada that I wanted to come back the following year to help with this cause. This will be my fourth trip and I am looking forward to it.

We need to continue this fight for all these child warriors who fight so hard to beat the odds to become a cancer survivor and to live long and normal lives.
