TORONTO, Ont. — Donning one of UPS’s recognizable brown uniforms, a 15-year Canadian veteran will be biking 115 km tomorrow to raise money for cancer.


Corporal Paul Ellis will be pedalling for more than five-and-a-half hours from St. Catharines to Toronto to raise awareness and money in support of SickKids Foundation. The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) in Toronto is one of the world’s largest and most respected pediatric academic health science centres.


Ellis’ personal battle with an inoperable brain tumour was the motivation for tomorrow’s trek, sources say. At 7 a.m., Ellis will leave UPS Depot in wearing one of their brown uniforms to fulfill a lifelong dream of working for UPS. He will travel along Lakeshore Boulevard, followed by a UPS package car, to, arriving at approximately 12:30 p.m.
