Riders for Ryders
Riders for Ryders is a dedicated and passionate group of cancer research fundraisers. The team was formed in 2009 by Jimi Brockett after his 5 year old son Ryder died because of brain cancer.
We all believe with every fiber of our souls that with the money that is raised and the research that it funds we will eventually live in a world free from cancer.
So with that being said let make a pact together to beat this disease so that one day when this disease is mentioned it will be as a thing of the past and not the present.
So how do we do that?
The past 7 years have been an amazing success with the team raising just under 2.4 million dollars and the event raising over 60 million dollars which is mind blowing. The team has grown from 13 team in 2009 to over 200 team members in the past few years.
The goal for 2016 is 333 team members and to raise 1 million dollars. This is where you come in to play. There are a couple of ways to make this happen.
I believe that with your help in raising money and with enough people we can achieve our goal. I believe it with every fiber of my being. I believe we will find a cure for ALL cancer.
For those of you in the area please join team 'Riders for Ryders' and make the promise to raise at least the minimum of $2500 to ride. We have riders of all abilities from complete beginner to experts to help you reach your goals. We have people from Langley to Kits and everywhere in between. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call me on 604 551 7959 or click register at the top of this page and select 'join a team' and I look forward to welcoming you to our team.
If our efforts and your donations help at least one family to not have to go through what I have and many of you have then I think we'll have all done our part.
Before I finish I wanted to thank everyone again for their support and donation over the past 7 years you have all blown me away with your generosity.
Thank you for taking the time to read this.
