My Message

Hello again. This will be my fifth time doing the 5 day 500 km ride to raise funds for Jumpstart - the charity dedicated to helping the 1 in 3 children whose families cannot afford to enroll them in sports. Thanks you very much for your tremendous support that you have shown me over these years. It is appreciated by myself and by all the familes helped this way. This year we will be riding again in Central-Southern Alberta.

Whether it is dance, soccer or hockey all girls and boys benefit from being able to participate in organized sports with their friends, classmates and neighbours. I think we all know that this participation is essential for physical, mental and social development for these kids. One of the best parts of these rides is the opportunity to meet kids who have benefitted and their enthusiasm is a wonderful antidote to cynicism. Last year we had the opportunity to visit an elementary school in Central Alberta and were treated to a wonderful assembly of the school kids who had received support from Jumpstart - I had forgotten how much energy and simple joie de vivre kids can have.

With the economic downturn continuuing in this provinve support for programs like Jumpstart is needed more than ever. I have requested that all funds raised by my ride go to needy families in Northern Alberta. For those of you who have been so supportive in the past I am very grateful. I know you have many requests for funding worthy causes like this and would appreciate any support that you are able to provide for this years ride.


I’m really excited about a new challenge I’m undertaking. I’m participating in the 2017 Jumpstart Pedal for Kids ride!

Jumpstart is more than just about getting kids active. It’s about giving kids from families in financial need the same chance to participate as their neighbours, their classmates and their friends. Whether it’s the chance to try a new sport or to continue with a favourite one, no kid should be left out.  

The vision of Jumpstart is simple: Canada, where all kids have a chance to fulfill their dreams.

Since inception in 2005 Jumpstart has helped over one million kids participate in sports and recreational activities.

Thank you for your support - it means the world to me! Please support me and make a secure online donation. The Pedal for Kids Ride will raise funds to help thousands of kids get off the sidelines and into the game.
