The Canadian Harambee Education Society (CHES) helps girls get an education through scholarships to Kenyan and Tanzanian girls who qualify for Secondary School placements, but who need financial assistance to attend school. I got inspired to provide a scholarship and between 2008 and 2012 I have supported Vallary Shitakale in Kakamega, Kenya. Vallary and I are the same age. We write often, and I look forward to visiting her one day… indeed, she’s challenged me to bring my bike and race her! She wants to go to University and be a broadcaster after high school, and I will continue to support her with that dream. CHES is an amazing not for profit organization. I use my race prize money to sponsor Valerie and 95% of what I donate goes to her. For more information on CHES please visit: www.canadianharambee.ca

B.C. Cancer Foundation's Tour of Courage, 2007. A big motivation for me when I first started cycling was to help raise money for cancer research. Like many families, I have had a number of close relatives who have been impacted by the disease. Along with a team mate of Team Avia West, Craig Logan, we raised over $5,000. As we were among the largest fundraisers in our age group we got the opportunity to meet and ride with Lance Armstrong, Phil Liggett, Steve Bauer, and Axel Merckx during the inaugural 90km event in and around Vancouver, BC. We also got invited to go visit the Cancer Foundation research Institute and meet with incredible researchers. I feel very lucky as I got inspired by my cycling heroes and got to meet medical heroes also. www.canada.com/victoriatimescolonist/news/life/story.html?id=31def212-9dee-4e69-beb2-80a6933c8a83&k=70323
