Team Dally is committed to making a difference for all Manitobans and their families living with cancer.
After being in remission for nearly five years, my brother Marke’s Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) relapsed at the end of June. On the first day of his treatments in 2016, a friend gave him a Superman robe that became the theme of his experience. This time, we had a t-shirt designed (pictured above) for him to wear the day he began his treatments. It says “TAKING CANCER TO THE TRAIN STATION”, playing on an expression from his favourite tv show, Yellowstone, where one of the main characters uses the code “taking him to the train station” when he’s about to “take out” a bad guy. This is exactly what we’re planning on doing to his AML once and for all with the help of CancerCare Manitoba, the team on GD6 and you!
Many of you have offered meals, prayers, positive energy, and anything else our family could possibly need or want to support us through this journey. Your kindness and generosity, along with the advancements in research and treatments, inspired us to hold a fundraiser to support CancerCare Manitoba in its work to change lives and change the course of cancer. Please consider making a donation in Marke’s honour. Every donation -no matter the amount- is critical to stay ahead of this disease.
One example of the advancements we’re benefitting from is that only five short years ago a bone marrow transplant (also referred to as a stem cell transplant) would have required the bone marrow to be collected from within a donor’s hipbone. Not that any of us wouldn’t undergo this invasive and painful treatment for our loved ones, but because of research, when Marke needed a stem cell transplant, it was simply be collected from his sister Roslyn’s blood. You can imagine the relief from our perspective!
We are proud to be fundraising for CancerCare Manitoba Foundation to help deliver the best research, patient care, treatment and support for all Manitobans and their families living with cancer.
Thank you for your consideration.

Cycle of Life
We’ve all seen too much cancer in our families and in Manitoba as a whole. We’re ready to do our part by riding our bikes to Gimli and back in support of CancerCare Manitoba Foundation.
Last year, we called ourselves “2 Guys, 4 Wheels” and were able to raise over $6,000. This year, we’re proud to expand the effort. We have more riders, more wheels, more drive, and a vision to raise $10,000 to lighten the load of Manitobans living with cancer and to support important research. We’re in our early 20’s and ready to make a difference.
Would you like to ride with us? Please send us a message! We’ll be starting our ride on Saturday, August 21, at CancerCare Manitoba on McDermot Avenue, riding to the harbour in beautiful Gimli, Manitoba, and returning to CancerCare Manitoba the next day, Sunday, August 22. The full ride is just under 200 kms.
You can ride both ways or just one. The key is to get involved and to raise funds for a vital cause.
