I have a rather personal appeal to you today.
My husband is enrolled in this charity cycling event, which will take him from Montreal to his hometown of Quebec city in July. That's a 300 km ride. He's been training really hard at home at night (and soon, outside, on actual roads!) and I'm really proud of him. Now to the fundraising part.
He chose to donate the money towards research on cancers that specifically target children. You know how important this cause is to us, right? So I'm really proud of him for that, too. Nevertheless, the minimum amount he needs to raise just to be able to show up on that day is pretty steep, and this is a cause that feels really personal to me, so I'm trying to help in any way I can.
Here is his personal page (in French or English), where you can make a (tax-deductible) donation (through either a credit card or Paypal, so I don't believe currencies are an issue). Even if it's just a few dollars (pounds, euros, rubles, zloties, reals, etc.), any support that you could provide would be TREMENDOUSLY appreciated.
And thank you.
