My Story…

FOR my friend Mark Deschamps & Lung Cancer Canada. The Lumberjack Challenge - Two days. Four events. For a whopping 59.2 KM in the total distance! I am not only doing this race for me, for my childhood friend that has passed away 5 years ago now from this tragic disease or for all the patients currently in treatment of Lung Cancer. I am doing it for all those that in the future will contract this horrible cancer and will change their lives, their families and friends life's forever. Let's face it "Cancer Does Suck!" So help me with a small donation or a big donation - just help me - help them! I need you! Please Give. Thank you as always! Richard


Every day 57 Canadians will die from Lung cancer.  It kills more than 20,000 people each year – more than breast, prostate and colon cancer combined, yet advancements are handicapped by vastly inadequate research funding.

You can play a crucial role in being part of the solution, by supporting this national cause.

You are what drives LCC’s success and we appreciate all of your participation. 

Create a running, walking group or a corporate team.  Get your family and friends together and join us in support of a worthy cause!
