Neville had been participating in the Great Cycle Challenge.
“This August, I am taking part in the Great Cycle Challenge to fight kids’ cancer!” Neville wrote on the fundraiser’s website on June 17.
“I can’t think of very many people that hasn’t known at least one child that has lost their battle…. so I am raising funds through my challenge to help these kids and support SickKids Foundation to allow them to continue their work in developing treatments and finding a cure for childhood cancer.”
Following Neville’s death, her wife Natalie described Lori as someone who was goofy, full of energy and always wanted to make everyone laugh. She said Lori was a great mother to their son, Oliver.
