“RIDE TO CONQUER CANCER”
Usually in June of every year, Coach Wayne pushes himself beyond his limits, to complete the epic 200+ kilometres bike ride, in aid of raising funds for the Campbell Family Cancer Research Institute at the Princess Margaret Hospital. This research is a very intensive and costly endeavour. Coach Wayne has retired from competition but continues to ride his bike for fitness, fun, and charity.
