I tried to look you up on the app for live-tracking and it says there is an error. Any word if/when that's going to be fixed?

@elvis

I'm not sure what the plan is for all of that. I know I'll have a chip on my helmet for tracking.

Are you getting an error via the iPhone app?

June 2, 2014 @ 9:13 AM

Philly-Bob

I got an email over the weekend inviting me to track my rider.

Good Luck Mike!!!

Was there a link? Can you share it?

Toddy Tickles name doesn't make the list.

@Rob

As soon as a pledge comes in, I edit this list.

Mike - I'm forwarding the email to you now.

Rob

That lying Toddy tickles!

I don't think he lies on purpose, I think he really wants to pledge just forgets about it.

@Toronto Mike,

This is the only link I got: http://to14.conquercancer.ca/site/PageServer?pagename=to14_mobileapp

Looks like it's iPhone-only.

iPhone only?

Booo!

Is my name missing? I have a receipt. :)

@Jenny

I'm such a knob. I was missing three pledgers, including you!

So sorry.... I don't know how I made that mistake.

June 2, 2014 @ 1:58 PM

Jenny

Knob!! Love it.
I will have to remember that when the "kids" do something dumb. :)

dear mike - good on you!
dear cancer - fuck off!

Congrats as you made your goal & also the Golden goal $5000.00

Good luck in your journey & think about Mike Kic for what your doing for this cause during your ride.

Thanks everybody. I'm blown away by your generosity.

I thought the $4,000 goal was lofty and never imagined I'd clear $5,000. 85 amazing people have come through thus far. That's incredible.

And thanks @dale for reminding everyone in the Open Mike's that this is happening. I appreciate the support.

And yes, I'll be thinking about Kic next weekend. I wish he was here to greet me at the finish line.

@ Mike

All of us have all done what we can & now it's up to you.

Good Luck

I'll bike 220 km, the 60 surgical oncologists at Princess Margaret can continue with their research, education and innovation.

June 2, 2014 @ 9:38 PM

Matt

Congrats on reaching $5,000. It speaks volumes about you and Kic.

Kick some ass this weekend Mike!

I'm on there
but not this name
and I tried
to go under this name
with my admittedly modest
pledge

June 3, 2014 @ 6:53 AM

Philly-Bob

@ Mike good on ya man, 5k is very impressive...go kick some carcinogenic ass.

@ This guest - every donation counts, maybe your donation is what put Mike over the 5k mark...
