My Message

Riding a bike has been a big part of my life since the day I took the training wheels off.  Bikes have always provided me with the freedom to explore.  They've kept me healthy and fit.  This is something I've always taken for granted. 

Being born with congenital heart disease is something I never considered until I was introduced to Bike2Play.  I've realized that because of health concerns at birth the children at Sick Kids Hospital and Cardiac Kids have never had the opportunity to build the cardiovascular stamina & endurance that comes riding a bike.. to truly enjoy the act of riding. 

With the money raised on this journey the Exercise Medicine Room located in the Labatt Family Heart Centre can continue to operate and improve it's facility.  It's here that the patients at Sick Kids can perform supervised cycling on exercise bikes and work towards improving their heart health from the pedals up.  I'm extremely excited to be riding again this year and hope that you can find it in your heart to contribute generously to Our Cause.

Thank you so much for your support of Bike2Play’s 4th annual ride! Bike2Play is a supported fundraiser of the Cardiac Health Foundation of Canada and has raised $120,000 in support of Sick Kids Hospital and Cardiac Kids.

This year, Bike2Play is looking for 50 participants to bike from Toronto to Muskoka on September 22-23, and their goal is to raise a minimum of $75,000 for our 4th annual ride. Your generous support for Bike2Play will be put towards the new project and commitment to establish the 1st Paediatric Exercise Medicine room and Cardiac Rehab Program for kids and adolescents in Canada at The Hospital for Sick Children. Your support will ensure that SickKids has the space required to conduct this program. The Exercise Medicine Room, located in the Labatt Family Heart Centre, will provide a place where children and their families can learn how they can better use physical activity to improve their health and quality of life.

Thanks again for your kind support!
