A Family Summer Fun-draiser for Pancreatic Cancer
**UPDATE** On Aug 15th, John himself completed the Lake Dore triathlon! At first he was only going to accompany some of the bike riders around the lake, but then decided he'd enjoy the peaceful paddle down Snake River first. Next thing we know, he's trekking through Shaw Woods, and 32km later John completed the first ever (virtual) Lake Dore triathlon! (He still does not know about this fundraiser!)**
In celebration of John Bradley’s 70th birthday - and 5th anniversary since having Whipple surgery - the extended Bradley family are helping to raise awareness and funds for pancreatic cancer so that many other families can have the great fortune of celebrating a positive outcome despite a pancreatic cancer diagnosis.
John celebrated his 70th birthday this June; his only birthday wish was a small donation to Pancreatic Cancer Canada. We couldn’t be more grateful for John’s health and positive outlook on life, and so we wanted to take his birthday wish to the next level. He does not know we are doing this in his honour!
If you have been directed to this fundraising page, it is because someone you know has a special connection to John and has committed to take on a personal challenge this summer in support of Pancreatic Cancer Canada. The mission of this charity is to raise survival rates by funding research, as well as increase awareness, education and patient support.
See below for everyone who has signed on for this challenge so far! We are aiming to complete many of our challenges by August 31st when we will be telling John about our adventures and the funds that were raised! We'll continue to raise funds and continue our activities throughout September.
Do you want to join us? Send us the challenge you will commit to and we’ll add you to this page. Then spread the word!
Thank you for visiting this page and for your support!
