Today I Ride for You – Riding for mom

How the story/idea started.

Here’s a letter to give you some facts…

August ~ 
Well its been a whirlwind of a journey learning about Cancer. Let me tell you that from having a mom who had cancer and has since passed on, it has now become my incentive to memorize every detail I learn while researching the heck out of Cancer. *Spreading the word is next. Story below.

Going across Canada with my Salsa ‘Mamasita’ bike; Bob Trailer in tow with gear (facts below) was only an afterthought thinking I’ll be all the way across Canada visiting my mom in the hospital Cancer palliative care unit…. thinking I have to come back to Banff anyways, (to my NEW hometown in life) I might as well take full advantage of being almost all the way across Canada, and undertake a life long dream and make it come true! Lets bring the bike!

(*updated) ~ August 15th.2017
(*although not complete yet)

Now with the time frame into summer (*2017) it has brought Crazy Larry to a different set of logistics now that his mom has passed on.
From ordering winter gear and ensuring he has it – to custom made gear specialized to complete the trip he is now determined to pull it off in *2018 !

Simply go above email him under CONTACT to registered to follow him. You all will be able to monitor his heart rate, distance, speed and to each registered ‘follower’ user Plus + a “constant global GPS position on a google map”.

He still intends to bike ride the first ride of three as per his love of life – bad storms and helping others – especially kids / youth !

As Crazy Larry tells us, “There has been such an Enormous Effort in planning and preparation … that, I will not give in to winter weather. He wants to get the job done.

As a result of the pent up feelings of wishing to pull this off; Crazy Larry is more then revved/Cranked to do this trip. He has an amazing affinity to make a difference with the kids and youth that are out there. He thought why not at Skateboard Parks? There is a little society going on there he says.
Funds are extremely low … I’m even looking to buy an amazing Salsa BearGrease FAT Bike with those tires that are FAT for riding over the snowy conditions that will prevail, but certainly will not stop Crazy Larry from his now relentless pursuit to his endeavour.
And if getting the job done means ~ Rain, shine, sleet or harsh blowing snowy conditions he’s always gonna go! By the time all is said and done; an accumulated price tag of using his own money (if he can find it) $38,900 will do it. I use to be an electrician but the feeling to help others is so strong its unparalleled to that of anything else in my life.

Crazy Larry says, “I’d rather be helping someone rather than be in a hospital bed doing absolutely nothing. He mentions his favourite parable of which he admits openly he is guilty of – that of watching people act on TV. He realizes where does that get me? Where has it gotten me all my life to be shaped into doing such things? But these doings are the doings we get raised up doing. By parents that love us and raise us the best way they know how. They mean, absolutely no harm allowing us to watch TV. What person doesn’t like to do that? Our brains have been shaped by what ever it is our parents have taken the time to research learn and educate themselves with knowledge to help raise us. This shapes our brains to want TV on a whim to relax for entertainment or learn too!

My life has more meaning to accomplish something that makes a difference for a better world; especially for our kids and youth to simply understand you can make a difference if you just step forward. Learn some NEW ways for our species. He wants to make this a FUN experience by going to as many Skate Board Parks across Canada as he can visit.

While doing this he wishes to use his High Energy Announcing ways to perk up the kids/youth at each Skateboard Park with a NEW Custom made SHURE Axient Sound System ~ FULL complete system (*$45,000) with more than several wireless microphones to get the kids/youth involved too! Once bought it will get much use over the years of the investment. He figures another 50 yrs. He’s never stopping he says.
There is much to do!

“Its about empowering the kids and youth”, he says.
He plans to have stunning RAD uniforms that allow shoulder STARS to show years of service while colourful ribbons like the Air Force show doings deeds in the community. The foundation will be called “High Five Stay Alive Foundation”

Since receiving the Star of Alberta Award needless to say many a Government Minister is enthralled with the sincerity of this enormous endeavour!

Crazy Larry says,”It would be nice to have the backing of a Platinum Sponsor that can show there is someone else that thinks the way his heart does too!”
Its a teary – eyed subject when I even begin to think of a child getting Cancer. I want to bring the message with ‘current’ knowledge with guest speakers with a dream Nasa Control Centre type van camper trailer that will act as the Headquarters from location to location – he’s hoping and praying I might own one. For now, he’s content with biking it to show the sincerity. With logos for advertising the proud Foundation he’s formed. Each uniform will have the logo on it. He will also be armed with a AED portable defibrillator, complete first aid kit.

A generic way of thinking or just following the flow of a system that many leaders know doesn’t work allows you little or no chance to make a difference in doing something for a better world unless “You” step forward to do something.

So….. I AM.
Not to forget the many small communities across this continent that have kids and youth too! Crazy Larry will try in earnest to leave no one behind in hearing his message.

The present plan: Is to make it back to Banff, Alberta 3 days before Christmas to Banff, Alberta to do his 72 hr Marathon of Hope (now in its 14th year) whereby Crazy Larry stays up for an entire 72hrs (3 days)on downtown Banff bench ‘just to ensure with heart’ that those who are in need of a soft shoulder, a lending ear, free hugs, warm clothing from gloves hat to underwear, vouchers for everything from coffee, danish, meals, showers,canned goods, at times a hotel stay, FREE hot shower, a little Christmas Trees for homeless stuck in the bush, and a kit he’s put together for those who will have to bunker it out on the streets.

As Crazy Larry says,”You never know when someone is going to be walking the streets just down on their luck from splitting up with a boyfriend or girlfriend or have had a loss in the family due to Cancer (and going through a roller coaster ride of feelings of sadness and bewilderment like I did) and thinking “who is there to talk to? *I AM here”… and for those that are married having a possible bad argument walking the streets to cool off wondering what just went on…gone for that lonely walk *I am here; Many are thinking,”What on earth do I do now?” *I AM here. Those that are bullied walking alone no one to talk to cheer them up to validate what they’re going through *I AM here.

Crazy Larry says,”I remember a day when no one was there for me” “I never want that to happen on such a day when human beings that have such a capacity for being compassionate are caught up into material things instead of sharing their hearts!”
or land up using money to manipulate each other. There are so many honourable ways being lost in society. I gotta get out there and do this Tour.

Another item for Crazy Larry’s homeless program called “When They’re Not There” is:
A Tough Hockey bag – kit includes: sleeping bag or with 4 – 6 wool blankets Kit 1.for one person Kit 2. for two people(couple) Also includes various items to stay warm balaclava, hand-made wool hats. (*made by the amazing Sheila MacCready), tooth brush toothpaste, scope mouth wash, condom, floss, warm fleeced mitts.

The Original Plan: Cycle across Canada combining three ideas:

1. Visiting as many towns/cities as I can spreading the message of the NEW cures for Cancer available (now 2013) on the market. That if you pay attention to what you eat you can have a very good chance at fighting off Cancer.  Heck! There are actually CURES out there! I want while tying balloons announcing teach the kids / youth about being good citizens that eating healthier means a more vibrant you!
 Along the way this two year planned project A Skateboard Park Tour of Canada I will also now be combining with this bike trip that of spreading the message of Cancer Awareness (*current information), healthy nutrition and how it affects your daily life along with the message bullying, its profound effects that ‘Can’ (some times) last a life time. How bullying of others should never happen but it does. How it is everyone’s responsibility to ensure that No one No more get bullied EVER again. It has become law in some states provinces schools.

There are many kids and youth who lack someone to Crank them up! Encourage them to be their best. To be a good citizen while learning well in school and out at street level.
2. To visit as many Skate Board Parks as is possible with a minimum of at least, documenting pictures of each along the way. Empowering each through the “High Five Stay Alive Foundation. A group of five will receive stunning Uniform shirts. The amazing FedEx Canada Courier Company will ensure speedy delivery and overnight service.
Very much inspired by Westjet’s Superior family feel and friendly staff I am going to knit together each Skateboard Park’s youth and kids to ALL feel like family.
 Westjet’s Amazing touching Christmas Wish to ALL =

3. Touching base as a minimum with various Cycle Clubs – Fire Departments – Police Departments – Town Councillors – Mayors and video the youth where he can along the way for a revealing documentary to come! Many Fire Departments have already expressed HUGE enthusiasm to come out participate in any way they can….as many have their own daughters and sons that go to skateboard parks local to their area. Police too! (*Due to winter conditions it might just be a winter push to make it back to Banff without so many visits along the way)

*There will be: Additional consecutive trips (X 3) planned in the next three years that will allow completion of goals and endeavours.
During the next consecutive trips (with more time on his side) along with weather conditions Crazy Larry will be able to interview the many kids and youth that frequent the Skateboard Parks right across Canada. He will try to include stops and talks at various schools when asked along his travels.

 Crazy Larry is open to sponsors or those wishing to help him spread the word of: Not to bully others’ , being kind to one another, and that of “Empowering kids and youth to be responsible” to take care of their health with smart nutritional choices; Pointing out that your health is truly your wealth. Also doing as many good community deeds of good will as they can.  To take ownership of their own Skate Board Park keeping it litter free clean as if it were truly their own.

Crazy Larry will use his magic touch of explaining to those running the town and various businesses that the kids / youth are truly our future. It
He states, ” That it would be a wise instead of keeping money in the bank with the idea or feeling that this is all one’s personal money to instead, give and invest knowing that your changing your future by investing into our kids and youth. Money in the bank goes no where. That an honest effort of good will by the business sector giving to kids and youth will help pave the way to healthy thinking and decision making. This also empowers them to do good in this world.

After his mother passed away of Cancer June 2013 and he took it upon himself to study the nutritional ways that combat Cancer.
He now, studies nutrition through the Alive Academy.

                                                                July – August 2015
                                                               ~ New Challenges arise ~

*Long time ago, while being constantly exposed to the haunting ways of a dysfunctional family; parents constantly arguing family siblings adding fuel to an already stressful fire with every family visit from out of town; Larry found this all added up to affecting his health in a serious way.
Under Doctors orders Larry was strongly advised to leave his home city with the strong suggestion of  “It is time that you embark on your own hopes dreams and goals…..Instead of playing mediator over the years to a problem which wasn’t and isn’t yours….the problem between family members who seem to make it their way to constantly argue and have a controlling way…. over the years Larry has come to realize learn that in order to have the life you wish you must first make the choice followed by “Action”…reciting the words of Doctors orders given to him by note prescription long ago.

Unknown to other members of the family due to a chosen move away to cope which kept one sibling unaffected about the immediate stress that plagued Crazy Larry’s life style it was the luck of an understanding family Doctor who after countless visits during these extremely stressful times was able to prescribe to Crazy Larry some written out Doctors orders. These would inevitably change the course of Crazy Larry’s life and offer him much hope to pursue dreams of a peaceful life full of a loving surrounding in his chosen dream destination ” The Rocky Mountains”
Thanks to this loving Doctor who saw through his family problems affecting him to the core with the stress bringing the onset of a condition triggered by such stressful times called ” Shingles ” Painful to the touch, these fever type blisters created an “ever – lasting – reminder to Larry of what he must do to survive and have the life he dreamed of so often.

being affected by constant family disruptions ordered encouraged him to charge after his own hopes and dreams encouraging him to keep his distance from those family members who brought him down.

The trip is now looking to possibly be done during Fall / winter as a preliminary ride to training for his Epic Ride of the Tour Divide Route.

Winter will soon be upon me and the logistics of settling matters of my mom’s estate is STILL affecting this trip.

“It was my error to count on a brother who I haven’t seen for some 15 yrs to be highly cooperative in the logistics of challenges with settling monies dealing estate matter monies to trust other family members to honour mom’s wishes and all monies to be given to me in a timely fashion”
“While I had made time to fly back across Canada to my old hometown such was not the case. It was my hope all paperwork would simply be signed immediately. And my mothers wishes would be honoured and finished in a timely fashion” that was not the case. Everyone reacts differently to the passing away of a family member.
He says but I’m not going to cancel doing this trip. There are many kids and youth who are counting on me and are going to watch my progress ‘Right across Canada’
*However, even with the hurt of family dysfunctional problems that looms over Crazy Larry he states, “I am NOT going to disappoint both them and me!” “I’m way too excited to do this and finish it!”

Inspired by the many Tour Divide Racers, racers, and others that he has come to know in life, some that are personal friends re: Cory Wallace, Dave Macdowell, Leighton Poidevin, Stan McGee, Anna Mei, Milena Bettocchi, Beppe Salerno, Tarren Sohier, Brian Peric, Margie Smith, Syd Fraser, Jeff Perron, Aaron Sands, Sonia Lopes, Shane Munro, Collin Croston, Marzio Deho & Johnny Cattaneo, Max Morris, Tinker Juarez, Dasha Gaiazova, Chandra Crawford, Kamila  Borutova, Devon Kershaw, Ivan Babikov, Billy Rice, Dave Blumenthal, Alex Harvey, Len Veljas, Perriana Jones, Anna Mei, Milena Bettocchi, Beppe Salerno, Tarren Sohier,Brian Peric, Margie Smith, Syd Fraser, Jeff Perron, Tim Will Gadd, Aaron Sands and local Radio Host DJ ‘Rob Murray’ a life difference maker….

Many of these above athletes in the above list are good friends of Crazy Larry’s are also on the Canadian Olympic Team, Set World Records, World Cup athletes, Cycling Champions, National Champions. One friend, Kamila Borutova set a New Guinness World Record!
As Crazy Larry says he has learned, “You must first surround yourself with a thriving environment in order to thrive”. Having those friends I AM in GREAT company and the feeling is indeed “Priceless!”

Crazy Larry “We couldn’t agree with you more!
We have met a few of the above.
Everyone that has met you has spoken highly and very well of your ways and philosophies in life.
They only need to see the ‘HOMEpage’ of this website to see a ‘few’ of the wonderful comments from those admiring your doings.

I will be indeed doing this ride across part of Canada as a Introductory Cycling Trip. (1 of 3) with ALL the above mentioned propelling me to push and push.

The initial plan of the 1st ride will have me cycling to as many Skateboard Parks where many kids/youth flourish doing their thing to be happy a sport that makes their hearts sing.
My question is are they thriving? I want them to thrive!

If the atmosphere at their home is not of the thriving atmosphere then many go to the Skateboard Park as an escape where they can relate to others who can relate to them. A bond and mingling happens here beyond belief to many!
Many parents these days are busy with life having their own business many I find resort to just buying a skateboard BMX bike for their kids and off to the park they go to play. I do however, see some taking a pivotal role in validating what these kids are doing. I see some parents on site. It is however, a rare occurrence.
I intend to make it ‘Cool’ to have parents around. So parents be ready!
At most skateboard parks there is a little society formed. By them; Its there! No monitors rarely a parent. Remembering our school dances we always had a monitor/parent; it was Policy!

I want to use my announcing abilities to CRANK the Crowds of which I’ve been doing for some 14 yrs now at World Championship races such as 24 hrs of Adrenaline races and Provincial Championships to mention a few and teach them about making healthier choices when choosing the food they eat daily.
While announcing and CRANKING them up with my very own Custom Design Shure Axient Announcing System.

Included in the High Energy Event will be a barbecue involving businesses in the area / the local Fire Department / the local Police Department.
I want to motivate the kids and youth at the many mini societies that exist at Skateboard Parks. Many have no direction no goals no dreams but one that runs wild with some to engage in what others influence them to do re: drink stolen or under age bought alcohol or take and sell drugs as a source of income.

The Popular Spot Connect will allow me to be tracked (when there is no storm)  so that all radio / TV / and newspapers /Schools of students / Magazines who care to watch me travel across Canada will be able to track my EVERY move ! 24/7
I will also be using the Garmin Edge 810 for tracking my personal progress.This is an amazing device whereby I will be able to monitor my heart rate and speed ETA to various destinations and much much more! Thanks Garmin!
***I will be able to text right to Facebook along the way to ALL… AND actually text to the SAR (Search and Rescue) people my exact emergency should one arise and get their exact ETA (Estimated Time of Arrival) !
The SPOT Connect – An Amazing GPS device!

Also amazing touring bags by Porcelain Rocket (Scott Felter) will have me being light while being organized to carry winter gear, clothing, balloons, electronics, camera, and water. This particular trip is not about being light but being thorough. There will be much harsh weather in desolate areas to contend with. Winter is here its November!
Hence, my reason for also carrying along a PLB – Personal Locating Beacon. SAR/911

The Bike Trip START will be cycled from Windsor, Ontario to Banff, Alberta.
It will be done in the same fashion as the movie Forest Gump Style.
Radio / TV / Newspaper will be notified allowing everyone to join in for an escort into any towns / cities
~ The distance cycled with me is up to them, whomever chooses to do so. (I know this 1st trip will dip into cold weather conditions) (We’ll see who can make it?)
Cycle Clubs – Fire Departments – Police Departments – Town Councillors – Mayors – maintenance workers – all city town employee’s all are invited to participate.

The Today I Ride for You Event will be an introductory Tour of Canada
1 of 3 Rides
 (Depart: Windsor, Ontario Oct/2013 ) Cancelled due to Family problems settling an estate with mom passing away of Cancer. Oh Darn!
2014 brings ON a NEW journey to finish!!!
(*Prince Edward Island July/2014)
(*Vancouver Island – July/2015 )
I will be visiting Skateboard Parks, talking in many schools,  talking with the many Cycle Clubs – Fire Departments – Police Departments – Town Councillors – Mayors and video the youth along the way for a revealing documentary to come.
I will be talking candidly to mayors and town councillors which will reveal to me exactly the state of their relationship with kids and youth in their respective towns and cities. Especially pertaining to the Skateboard Park Society.

I will be talking to the kids and youth at those Skateboard Parks about various topics: About making healthier decisions – how ‘every choice’ shapes their brain!
 ONE fact is SURE!
I will be involving the smarts of neurology Doctors from around the world (presently contacting the famous TV Show celebrity Dr. Kulreet Chaudhary and Dr. Nora D. Volkow M.D. from NIDA)
Through collaboration with Doctors from around the globe with “Current Information” we will educate the kids and youth about the toxicity of street drugs and the harmful effects drinking.

I will also include and talk of how Cancer can affect many family members precancer and post cancer treatment and invite them to bring their friends and talk about (the ups/downs) of Cancer including costs (how that affected me) and how it can affect them. Plus NEW treatments available = allows them to make smarter choices than ever before.

The trip itself will be like rinsing my soul. I want to help others by filling my heart with the joy that comes from helping others thrive! What is just plain and simple “The Right Thing to Do!”

My Mom had cancer. It could be your mom.
There is a cure in the making! Dichloroacetic acid, often abbreviated DCA. Studies need to be done for its full approval of how it interacts with other drugs being taken by a person at the time of of taking. Six have been cured!
 The pharmaceutical companies won’t let it come to market because there is no money to be made from it. We know they have a lot of money and are powerful to do what they wish when they wish.

So I thought…Why not us?
Why wait all the time for others?
We can bring the prevention message more powerful than the cure, to market – together.
You and I ?

I want you to be a part of my team.
Each and every one of you!
My philosophy: We are really ALL on the same team!
At the end of the day; after all has been said and done; We my friends…Are ALL on the same team!

My Plan also includes:

To cycle across Canada with a Goal Zero Power Solar Panel powering my laptop (practical applications says: Panasonic Tough Book is the applicable one for me) I will be contacting them for sponsorship.
(Rain, Shine or Snow I always go…so typing in the rain = no problem)
The idea of bringing along that type of Toughbook Computer is to be able at “ANY Time” to stay in touch with You – the public, kids, youth, CEO, sponsors, parents, high schools following me to keep in touch with pictures and updates and how I’m feeling is important.
As when Clara Hughes blogs and people like Brian Peric (Ultra distance cyclist traveller) blogs it allows a person very much to keep along with feelings of that person on that journey.

So I’m looking to do some LIVE Streaming!
IF it takes a Satellite phone I’m look’n into that now. To enable the constant contact.

I’ll also bring along a Rainproof  S4 Iphone to keep in touch with ALL the school kids/youth out there.
Available 24/7 my Personal PHONE number is > 403-497-4200. Temporary phone 403-497-6640 (for present contact as of March 30th.2014) My regular phone is in repair and broken faceplate/digitizer inside.
There is NO time that I will say, “Why are you bothering me so late?” “Never!” Not me.
Just phone me if you wish to talk.

When we get sick we don’t have to suffer alone.
Think about that when you’ve had the flu.
No one else was there possibly at that time when you were lying in bed barfing alone.

I love the Rocky Mountains and ALL that it has to offer!
Especially, storms, bears, wolverines, cougars, the fresh smell of spring flowers and the aromatherapy of discarded pine cone seed peelings from chipmunks piled high up on the ground under a pine tree dosed with a downpour of a spring rainstorm heated to perfection by some Rocky Mountain sunshine its aroma floating around is an everlasting scent to my memory! I LOVE it ALL!!!

There is no rhyme or reason why it had to be my mom (while reading this you know it could be a member of your family or a close friend) that got Cancer. I do know that diet plays a “HUGE” role in the process by which you live. I know that stress does, too!
Another reason of ‘the why?’ I AM going to go to the Skateboard Parks. Many use them as an escape from the atmosphere of many dysfunctional family homes that are full of arguments and yelling; and full of parents not doing things that are of the noble and honourable nature.

I know that early detection is another. I DO KNOW that “Prevention is EVERYTHING”
Remember ‘you’ my friend have the ability to say “NO” to much of what is out there that you’re eating choosing healthy items and NOT accepting the decisions of others in power like the FDA = Food and Drug Administration who allow chemicals in our foods, relax chemical values allowed in our foods that our kids eat, by just saying “NO”
Be smarter; Be powerful; Choose healthy!

Entertainment opportunities await for those wishing to be a part of my winning team to help encourage good change to flourish on this trip of three of a lifetime. I’m talking fun entertaining music opportunities for those who wish to come along!
Bookings will be at the various venues along the way!

Did you know?
There is a CURE for Cancer in the making! One is Dichloroacetic acid, often abbreviated DCA.
Funding for research is the only thing left necessary to know how these NEW drugs interact with other drugs being taken by those who’s ailments which are already in progress. re: high blood pressure drugs to rheumatoid arthritis drugs.

To date DCA and other nutritional ways have worked!

However, there are skeptics who downgrade their efficacy. Some of those who don’t stand a chance to make a profit on what already works and has worked for years past! There are testimonies of those who have been actually cured.
*I am working on getting each testimony in hand. Or in person!

Please (take the time) to read two short articles below:
* Please be advised that the content you read might start you swearing and cursing ** Kids not present please! (Its that SHOCKING!) Remember the parameters involved of with the testing of this NEW drug DCA. It has to be able to interact with other drugs being taken at that time.
Note: I HAVE talked to the Coordinating Nurse who coordinated the study of the drug efficacy of the drug DCA. Very revealing facts came out!!!
This just recent (read the date!)

This upsets me in an enormous way; that there is this cure in the making that is here now, with just clinical studies in the way – for not just my mom but maybe a loved one you know who is in the hospital /at home sick / or literally dying right now.

Amazingly to note here: Pharmaceutical companies as employees – as humans – even as parents themselves have changed their way from compassion to greed for money. Instead of acting quickly with a Present CURE for Cancer breakthrough they are holding back from any investing of the $100 million dollars I heard it takes to bring it to market. Why?
There’s NO money in it for them!
Simply Crazy!

I find it an amazing phenomenon of how some Pharmaceutical employee’s who are acting like robots to those who control them with their sometimes high pay-checks I often wonder of the ‘why?’.
Why? Why? Why? When they themselves have a family in life that need more nutritional knowledge more than ever before because of chemicals being allowed in our foods.
Doctors when being educated are not given enormous nutritional education to help us. You only need here think of your own personal Doctor and how he prescribes a drug rather than nutritional advice. The Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors.

I must include the notorious FDA = Food and Drug Administration for allowing cancerous chemicals into our food products.

I am being driven by this outright stupidity to do something about it.
I will not sit back and take a seat to complacency of accepting it for kids today.

Well, plain and simple this is about rallying the troops meaning you – to help me in my endeavour.

Please help me.
Ever have a dream?
Well this one is mine.

This trip ‘will’ have FULL disclosure!
The entire trip in the making “presently” has the opportunity to have the entire trip broadcasted at times while stopping at Skateboard Parks or Schools via LIVE Web Streaming /GPS LIVE tracking. F.B messages/emails/blog updates.

*LIVE Video Footage!
*EACH Skateboard Park will have interviews with the kids and youth along with pictures/video’s made of them doing their tricks making their hearts sing!

Those Skateboard stops will carry with them the….
Title: Crazy Larry Live on Location.

Live Video’s/pictures will be made by the kids and for the kids at Skate Board Parks for souvenirs of their fun efforts encouraging them that they are “ALL” champions for just trying getting out there instead of choosing to hang out at bars; encouraging them along the way to help each other, pay it forward ways and all this is to encourage them stay away from choosing drugs, drinking and that through making a difference in society you all will be helping it to be that which you wish it to be and that in itself ‘can be’ the Hallmark of their ways!
I am NOT concentrating on wishing they come in 1st, 2nd, 3rd but being 1st to make a difference in society.
I will share with their struggles to find themselves that:

  • Do not fear that which you have not yet tried to do.
    You must dig deep however, if you are to overcome the many obstacles that wish to stumble you on your path. Each time you dig you will grow!
  • Even when you are scared feeling the crunch and pressures of dysfunctional family life remember: Even the smallest person can change the course of a future!f I think you get the idea!?

As stated above: In my life, I live with the rule that “We are ALL on the same team”

Your ranking in life might better be judged by you with what you do to make a difference for the team instead of how high up on a socially accepted ladder you think you are. Who the heck started that anyways, that ranking of who’s better who’s higher? humm was it government? Hummm…? (thinking) (thinking)
You might wish to watch an astonishing movie > ” I AM ”

Life just may be more better lived  by how much you can fill your heart by giving sharing and showing compassion before strife / trauma strikes us rather than how much you can fill your credit card; by how much (for some) you follow the rules.
Every get a break with a rule in place? Well, there! You just got the idea! People tend to come together quite quickly; pretty much instantly change to say ‘Hey! Thanks buddy!’

Along this trip talks that we all can have fun staying healthy will be highlighted with some FUN upbeat music. (sponsors and help permitting)

For sure = Meetings with town/city mayors, town council, Fire Chiefs-firemen and women, Principals of schools, teachers, Police, RCMP, and Community OutReach Program workers will allow me to help bridge the gaps of kids/youth connecting with adults that we trust so blindly.
Trusting that those adults will do deeds and doings as leaders and parents that are honourable, sound in principle and morally right, and at least for the betterment of our health. Not just a business man’s pocket book!


Dear friends CEO’s and those who read this:

How YOU can help me get on the Ellen Degeneres TV Show!
Yes! That’s the plan!

~ I need to get The ELLEN Degeneres TV Show plain and simple.
Ellen is a beautiful person who has a heart of GOLD. She can and “does” change the lives of others! I want that to be me! So I can change the lives of others with a sponsored announcing system from SHURE Axient Systems and plenty of barbecue supplies necessary to CRANK the kids. Each town and city will be approached for members of the community wishing to help out with ‘healthy’ food.
This can happen on her show within 7 minutes. She has an amazing viewership of 20,000,000 million people. That is an ENORMOUS amount! More than what famous singers at concerts get in 10 shows or more!

ELLEN needs to understand how the many lives of children ‘like yours’ will be changed with my Today I Ride for You Event! (at the end of this blog) you will find two nice letters as an idea of the direction  for comments to inspire your letter to Ellen.
*Make yours Count!
You don’t have to be a Pro writer to talk from the heart!
Click here:

Gosh! I thank you so very very kindly for taking the time to write one!

I need lots of people to explain to her that with having the repour with many kids and youth along with some High Energy Announcing abilities/positive talks about beating Cancer and staying healthy …..Keeping kids-youth updated with current knowledge that there is ‘much’ that they can do as individuals to make a difference in our forever changing world and do this ALL with my *Custom-made SHURE Axient Announcing System ~ That has seamless voice recognition; meaning your voice is ‘never’ interrupted with a storms interference of any type. And with Custom-made designed Speakers I can impact them even more!!! The idea is to make it entertaining!
Here are a few videos of this State of the Art System to CRANK them up!

If you think anything of me that’s good; good that I have done for our community; An impacting meeting or conversation together with me that affected you….Please let ‘her’ know ‘now’ by writing NOW.

Nor will the courage shown by that person “You know” that has fought an illness.

Today I Ride for You will be for ALL to ride for that someone they love, care for, or has past on.
Today I Ride for You will be about the love we each have for each other.
Whether it be for your son, daughter, grandmother, grandfather, Uncle, Aunt, cousin, nephew or someone close to your heart you can validate that love and your ability to be able to ride while healthy in the “NOW” not later.

We ‘Can’ do this; if we come together to help each other.
I will lead, my hope and prayer is that you will follow to support my efforts.

Cross Canada > Forest Gump Style for ALL to join me with a movie ending like the movie ‘Pay It Forward’ *** ONLY much more cheerier!!! Everyone cheers instead of being sad ~ My bike ride across Canada  I want to end with ALL of you’s in the Town of Banff and Canmore to be there!

For those who don’t know the ending of the movie please see this short YouTube clip: 4.34 minutes (you’ll enjoy it…trust me!)

About the ending of ‘Pay It Forward’
My personal thoughts: A question I am often asked is, “Why did the story have to end the way it did?” This is my honest answer. “Because  it needs to take place in real life”
I thought: Why not with ALL of you! **In Banff! Lights, camera, Action, ELLEN Degeneres TV show there at the helm!

Together ‘we’ make a difference.
Please write in to ELLEN!

For those that need to know:
And to clear the air of some stories…..(you know who you are) wink wink

After a scary attempt at a fundraiser some thinking my immediate goal was to leave the next day (well, it was)

But …. My present delay going home has been due largely to doing detailed research regarding a CURE for mom’s brain tumor obtaining the drug located close by (flying to get it) (and not all the way across Canada and back again) and delivering that personally to be administered under Doctors care to mom. I’ve been talking with the actual people (coordinator) involved with that ‘exact’ study of that NEW drug!
Mom was SUPER surprised to listen to the fact that I would even think to do such a thing not knowing my ways. Never the less for peace of mind (in case something were to happen) I must try…she’s my mom. All conversations from having the experience of being a student nurse before taught me to make ‘every’ conversation count!
*And Boy! I did!
Mom knew she was loved; I knew she loved me.

That and compiling an enormous amount of data on camera to show mom who I’ve become and what I do to help others. She has not seen me for some 14 yrs. I’ve been an estranged son due to family problems beyond my control that affect one’s health severely.
Mom understands; its just the way its been sadly to protect my health. *(And THAT, was Doctors orders after getting a severely painful dose of shingles)
It then, becomes an intuitive way a very guarding way of a human nature to watch that which makes you stressed, even IF its your family. I’ll stop there.

Buying a faster computer with having one with only one core did not allow for any speed; and it going as slow as one click of the mouse was equal to 30 sec of waiting time would not suffice to move FASTER forward with a slide show for my mom… my inner wish for a younger lifetime stolen from family problems was for mom to at least know me (she never paid much attention); find out who I am; and buying another camera was very smart to be able to do this! A last bid attempt to have her understand and at least trying on the phone was futile.

Some have balked at the why buy those things? Some are even passing around stories fabricated to make me look terrible. Family matters; personal conversations with my mom fueled my attempts to those upper decisions to be done fast as possible. Not listen to others who did not know what private family conversations had taken place. She might not ever get the chance to see any of it…but as Cancer Doctors advised, “you must try Larry…remember this is about your mom and how her having Cancer is affecting you and the many others who’s family members have Cancer and it changes ‘their’ lives as a result….and having to live with yourself from your actions”
“Anyone making fun of your using fundraising money not knowing vital details of personal conversations with family and your mom and belittling me for such things will only not only undermine who they are as people but speak volume’s as to how they think and those that chose to listen and side with them. They may never understand the peace that it will bring to do things as such that are of a personal nature and connected to Cancer and family”

“The pride your mom had in feeling your caring through doing such things is yours alone to keep forever” “We the Doctors are astonished at your proceeding to research with such effort for an actual Cancer Curing Drug (that exists ‘Presently’) as a possibility to save or help your mom live longer to see you graduate from your nutrition course”

This ALL and more was discussed my mom and she understands and that’s all that matters for now. Personal matters are personal.

I have utmost respect and HUGE Enormous Thank You for ALL who donated; who cared; who came forward during the time I was stationary bike riding for 50hrs in Canmore = various four locations [Drake Hotel, Rebound Cycle, Rocky Mountain Bagel Co., Ascent Physio Therapy]
The Banff Location = 84 hrs at the King Edward Hotel  (and during wee hours of the morning) Thanks Banff friends; everyone with their personal donations little or big they all added up for many doings and related expenses that will result from mom having Cancer.

I only hope that those who know me well respect my ways will not listen nor be influenced so trivially to those who start rumours for such personal times of strife and grieving and doing my best with circumstances that most know nothing about my family history or details.

I love you all dearly.
You have become my NEW adopted family long long ago.

So don’t be a stranger…write a comment on the HOME Page for me.

*** Below are two amazing letters that started a cascade of letters ‘right now’ being flooded to ELLEN as we speak!
*** You can send in more than once!


As promised, I wrote a letter to the Ellen show that reads: Hi Ellen,

I’m an elected Town Councillor in Canmore, Alberta … near Banff in the beautiful Canadian Rockies. More than our majestic mountains, much of the beauty in our community comes from the people that bring colour and texture to our town. I’m writing to recommend one of our most special and memorable characters to be on your show – “Crazy Larry” Melnik.

As his name suggests, Crazy Larry is a unique individual who really has to be experienced. Fortunately for us, Crazy Larry’s gifts and passion are to bring joy wherever people are gathered. Local events would not be the same without Crazy Larry showing up to give high fives, make balloon animals, entertain the crowd with his video camera, and leaving a trail of laughter and smiles behind him.

A passionate advocate for bicycles and good health, Crazy Larry also participates in the community as an announcer and ambassador at local events. For years he’s organized an annual bike rally in memory of a local Mom who was killed by a bear while she was riding on a popular trail. And, recently the community rallied behind Crazy Larry as he rode his bike for 50 hours to raise money for his terminally ill mother.

Crazy Larry’s dream is to own a professional speaker system and tow trailer to pull behind his bicycle as he travels from community to community. I believe there’s plenty of Crazy Larry to go around – for Canmore, across the country, and around the world.

Keep on dancing,
Sean Krausert
Town of Canmore


Larry, I sent this to the Ellen show, like you requested, hope you get on.” If there was anyone worth meeting Ellen, it’s CrazyLarry Melnik. He lives in Banff,Canada and loves giving back to the community as much as he loves the outdoors. His passion has been volunteering as an Announcer/Entertainer at Mountain Bike races for over a decade. His enthusiasm is infectious and just the thing a rider needs to accomplish a 24Hr Race. He loves children and can be found making balloon animals and leading them as they do the 24minute race. He gives his time to local charities,helps youth follow the right paths,gives to the homeless. Sadly,Larry received news of his mother having terminal cancer and recently rode his bike for over 72hrs to raise funds for her care. He is so moved by this event,he plans on biking across Canada raising funds for Cancer. All he needs and deserves is a SHURE Axient cordless announcing system and trailer to help him spread his infectious,positive attitude and win over the hearts of the world, like he has won over the hearts of the Mountain Bike and outdoor enthusiast community. Please help him Ellen, have him on your show and you won’t be disappointed.”
