Biking For Better Cancer Care
Chris Jeffrey always had a passion for cycling but lost the drive to pedal.
Making a Difference One Kilometer at a Time
Chris Jeffrey always had a passion for cycling. But after his wife Pamela Smith–Jeffrey passed away from lung cancer in 2015, he admits he lost that drive to ride his bike. But a goal to make cancer care better for everyone in this community and a renewed love of cycling has helped him complete an incredible fundraiser.
Jeffrey challenged himself to donate one dollar for every kilometre he cycled. He started his goal while on a trip to Florida this year and ended his cycling journey with a trip through Mount Tremblant. The money was raised with donations by himself and others who supported his efforts. This project wrapped up recently, raising a total of $3,100.
All the money will go to support cancer care at Belleville General Hospital. Jeffrey says “Pam didn’t have a lot of time after her diagnosis so anything for cancer care at BGH that will help other people is good by me. This isn’t just for oncology, it’s for people who need tests or anything else of that nature.” BGHF Executive Director Steve Cook says Chris’ event is such a selfless gesture. “He not only put forth a donation himself, he encouraged giving from others with his bike ride. Chris also recognizes that cancer care comes in many forms. Diagnostic equipment is key in the fight against cancer.”
