My Message

For most recreational cyclists in Halifax, travelling to Toronto to compete in a cycling event on the Honda Indy racetrack would be a considerable achievement in itself. Making the 2,000 km trip to Toronto on the same bike on which you’re competing would be rarer still. But that’s just what Gary Jones, an irrepressible 72-year-old two time cancer survivor, is preparing to do on Saturday morning in support of Prostate Cancer Canada.

A husband, father of 2 and grandfather of 3, Gary is a retired long-haul truck driver residing in Timberlea. He has successfully overcome cases of thyroid cancer and prostate cancer. Transformed by his good fortune, Gary’s life’s mission since 2010 has been dedicated toward cancer fundraising through cycling treks, including a cross-country trip. “I often tell people that I traded 22 wheels for 2, and instead of delivering steel, I’m delivering hope, faith and attitude.”

Thank you in advance for your generous support.

Way to go Gary! My father passed away two months ago from this terrible disease at 65. With people like you raising funds I am hopeful we will find a cure, and at the very least, more effective treatment.
