In 2008, Patrick Sullivan lost his young son Finn to an extremely rare form of cancer, rhabdomyosarcoma. A few months later, he was approached by two close friends: "They told me about this fundraising bike ride to Seattle, the Ride to Conquer Cancer. They wanted to put a team in it -- and do it in honour of Finn. That was the start of Team Finn."
2017 will be Patrick's eighth Ride. Watch his full story below:
