YEAR 10 of the Pacesetters Ride to Conquer Cancer---prepare for an unforgettable experience
As we enter the 10th year of the Ride to Conquer Cancer and the 10th reunion of the Pacesetters, I am both humbled and awed to realize that you are among more than 400 unique riders who have joined us on this epic adventure for at least one of the last nine years.
That you have contributed by riding is a tremendous testament to how deeply and personally cancer touches our lives, and also to the power of friendship and family to unite us, and give us the strength to rise to new challenges.
I am very hopeful that you will ride with us again this year, and that you will consider bringing at least one friend, family member or colleague to join you.
To register for the SpiderTech Zimmering Pacesetters this year, click the JOIN button to the right and follow the simple instructions on the site.
A few words of encouragement, and a sneak peek at exciting things in store ahead to help bend your arm, if I may.
Why We Do This:
Unfortunately we all know someone who has lost parents, relatives and friends to cancer. We have all come to appreciate that life is precious, people and relationships are what matter, and that anything worth doing is worth doing to the best of our abilities.
We have also learned that asking for others’ support is hard, but that the rewards - friendships, fellowship, fitness & fundraising - more than make up for it!
Why You Matter:
We are a family. Each and every one of us shares a story of how this disease, or someone on our team, has touched their lives. Whether you’re a first-time rider, or joining us for the 10th consecutive year, we promise to do everything in our power to support you - in your preparation, for your fundraising, and on race weekend. Get prepared for the adventure of a lifetime.
Our Goal This Year:
Our collective goal is to recruit our largest racing team yet - at least 200 riders - and to eclipse the $5 million mark in funds raised over the last decade. My personal goal is much more audacious, but more on that in good time.
Speaking of good times, there’s no better time than now to register.
What We’re Funding:
Leading-edge PET imaging technology and techniques spearheaded by the incomparable Dr. Neil Fleshner at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre that will enable physicians to more precisely identify, target and attack cancer cells throughout the body. (It will blow your mind.)
Who’s On Board:
Tremendous commitments and support already from Aeroplan, Aimia, HUB Insurance, Humberview Group, SpiderTech and The 11 Inc., with more exciting announcements to come.
Weekly training rides, personalized instruction and coaching, unforgettable experiences, expert bike advice, knockout ride gear, surprise celebrity visits, unique perks & incentives, and incredible camaraderie and networking opportunities, to name just a few. But most importantly, the honour of joining together to raise funds and awareness in the fight against one of the world’s deadliest diseases.
