Neill is an avid cyclist who has a passion for family and giving back. Terry Fox has been a particular inspiration to Neill, reinforcing his determination to contribute as much as he can to others. On the 40th anniversary of Terry Fox’s Marathon of Hope, Neill challenged himself to bike 160 kilometres every week for 20 weeks. He also asked his friends, family and members of his community to contribute financially to Canadian Blood Services in support of his efforts.
His goal was to raise one dollar for every kilometre he travelled, which he surpassed with flying colours, ultimately raising $4,399!
Neill doesn’t limit his contributions to raising funds for Canadian Blood Services, though. He is also an advocate for blood donation and Canadian Blood Services Stem Cell Registry, knowing the importance of all areas of Canada’s Lifeline that depend on donor support.
