Community Support: Team Finn/RTCC, DTES

Thank You for visiting my website. This page is particularly personal to me. So, I especially thank for for stopping by and reading this page.
FINN was born in June of 2005, one minute after his brother BAIRD and less than three years after his sister SARAH.

On October 9, 2008, a cancer that I can neither pronounce nor spell took FINN's life.

I never had the privilege of meeting FINN in person. I have spoken to him since his passing many times. In early 2009, I met FINN's father, PATRICK SULLIVAN, online.

I had signed up for the inaugural Ride to Conquer Cancer. A bike ride from Vancouver to Seattle. I didn't own a bike.

I started writing about various related things online. That is how PATRICK found me. Apparently, he found me funny. He nervously called and invited me to join "TEAM FINN". And, without knowing FINN, or his story, I joined. Never in a million years would I have ever imagined how that call would impact my life.

FINN has taught me so much. As his mantra says, to RUN, JUMP, BOUNCE, DANCE, SING, SMILE, and LOVE. And, later, to RIDE.

My biggest take away from FINN is his teaching of the importance of living. Right now matters. So, live it!

I have deleted everything I wrote here leading up to the 2023 Ride.

And here's the update. Team Finn raised $151,000.00 !!!!! Collectively, $7.1m was raised. Well done to all the riders and thanks to all of YOU for your support and donations.

Let's see what 2024 holds in store!
