John Vani's Ride to Conquer Cancer
SUPPORT MY RIDE TO CONQUER CANCER(R)
Welcome to the Personal Page of John Vani !
The Ride to Conquer Cancer presented by Silver Wheaton benefiting BC Cancer Foundation, is a two-day cycling journey, through the beautiful Pacific region taking place in the summer. It will be a challenge in a number of ways, but with my bike, my helmet, and your generosity, a real impact will be made!
There are many reasons I decided to participate in the Ride to Cure Cancer this year and most of them have a first and last name.
For those who have left us do to this insidious disease, and only to list a few ,I ride in Memory of Michael Reigh, a father in law I will always remember and John Ames a friend and business associate who taught me much and I miss greatly.
To those who fight on bravely ,i am in special awe of my cousin Maryanne Quattrocioci , who battles daily with an amazingly positive attitude. A true example of why we need to fight harder for a cure.
To those who seem to have successfully averted the worst of consequences , but are still forced to live with a lingering doubt, i ride for my Wife Elisabeth and my Son Aaron.
Liz and I believe strongly that we can be part of positive outcomes and do our best to support charities that focus on people that are close to us. This event exemplifie's that belief. We have made a commitment to MATCH EVERY DOLLAR WE COLLECT so as to have the most impact possible.
It is always difficult to reach out to friends and associates and we do so knowing very well that not all can commit for very many reasons. We understand and appreciate what you do in your own way for your own causes.We expect nothing and appreciate anything.....
I will be riding with my friends from Cafe Al Mercato in West Vancouver. Doug Grisdale and his team have been amazing supporters of this effort and i thank them for letting me join them. Liz has graciously offered to be my support team and I know she will make the difference.
Thank you in advance for your help.
Sincerely John and Elisabeth Vani
