Support My Ride to Conquer Cancer®
As Captain of Team Supernatural, we are proud to be participating in our 7th year of THE RIDE TO CONQUER CANCER, benefiting The BC Cancer Foundation!! As many of you know, this 2 day cycling journey goes from Vancouver to Seattle, on August 27 & 28, 2016. This year, I will be one of 2500 Riders cycling and hopefully raising more than the $7 million raised last year!!
Thanks to all our supporters the past six years, Team Supernatural is proud to have been awarded Silver Ambassador status every year, for contributing over $10,000 each year; raising over a total of $85,000.00 so far!! This year, I will be cycling again, with Jill driving through the crowds, picking up tired, injured Riders.
Team Supernatural, began this journey by participating in honour of our good friend and mentor, Kim Manners, an executive producer/director, noted for his amazing talents on the TV series Supernatural, The X-Files, and many other productions, who passed away suddenly in 2009, from lung cancer.
This past year, our very good friend Alan Kostiuk pass away from extensive cancers, and so now, we ride in his honour as well. Alan was a professional volleyball player, who represented Team Canada, was on volleyball teams internationally, and also ran a very successful landscaping company. In our hearts, honouring Kim got us started on this journey; our aunts, uncles, friends and colleagues, who have lost their lives to cancer kept us participating in this event, and Al is why we are still participating this year. Cancer touches everyone's lives, and we are fundraising for this event, so that our family, friends, and colleagues who are still battling this dreadful disease, will have a chance to survive, and go on to live happy, healthy lives.
We hope that you will share this incredible adventure with us by supporting us in our fundraising efforts. Team Supernatural's goal this year is to raise over $15,000.00, to make our grand total for the 7 years over $100,000!! We thank everyone who has supported us in the past, and we hope that it is possible for you to help again. For those of you, new to our donors list, or unable to contribute in past years, we hope that you might be able to consider making a donation this year. All proceeds go to the BC Cancer Foundation to support cancer research, treatment, and services.
Thank you, Kevin and Jill
Sponsorship - Double Duty For those who may have capital gains tax considerations - there is a great way to reduce your tax liability with your donation. When you donate in kind (stock), you not only get a tax receipt for the full market value of the stock at the time of donation, but since you have received nothing upon disposal of the stock, you realize an effective capital loss on it to offset capital gains. For more information on this type of arrangement, please visit the B.C. Cancer Foundation web site - http://www.stocks4cancer.ca You will still be helping me achieve my fundraising goal if you put my participant ID: 260070-3 on the donation form.
