“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. He has raised over $25,000 for the Ride to Conquer Cancer. If you would like to support Coach Wayne in raising funds for this cause, you can go to the Ride to Conquer Cancer Website, search for participant Wayne Henry and make an online donation.
