AN EPIC RIDE TO CONQUER CANCER
Support My Ride to Conquer Cancer®
For those of you who don't yet know, the Ride to Conquer Cancer benefiting BC Cancer Foundation, is a two-day cycling journey, from Vancouver to Seattle taking place in June 2013. The ride reminds us all of the critical need for continued research to discover the causes of cancer, ways to improve treatment, and how to develop more effective means of controlling and curing the disease. I'm sure every one of us have either been touched personally by this disease or know someone close to us who has. If we all do what we can, then together this battle will be won.
Since its inception in 2009, thousands of cyclists have raised an amazing $27.9 million in support of cancer research in B.C. through their participation in the Ride to Conquer Cancer. The ride is supported by an all-volunteer crew that is the backbone of the event. They are bike mechanics, route guides, and road crew. They install route signage, distribute food and drinks along the route and turn an empty field into a campsite. Their dedicated efforts, and the event entry fee paid personally by every rider help ensure that your donation goes to support the research that is so vitally needed.
Please consider adding your support to this important event with a donation. Funds raised in The Ride to Conquer Cancer will support breakthrough research, exemplary teaching, and compassionate care made possible through BC Cancer Foundation, a leader in cancer research and care.
Thank you in advance for your help. Please pass along the link to this page to any friends and colleagues of yours who might be interested in making a donation to the BC Cancer Foundation in 2012. With their help, I am certain that my goal of raising $3,000 will be met.
