I learned about the Ride to Conquer Cancer when my friend Todd started this team in 2016 in his wife Linnea's honour. I've seen what this great group of people have accomplished since then, and have been looking forward to a summer when I have the time to join. That is this summer and I'm so excited!
On August 18-19, every member of our team will participate in a 200 km, 2-day bicycle through the foothills of Alberta. We are all working towards a fundraising goal of $2,500 and an overall team goal of $100,000! Funds raised through The Ride will support breakthrough research, exemplary teaching, and compassionate care at the Alberta Cancer Foundation, a leader in cancer research and treatment.
So many of my friends have lost loved ones to cancer. If there is a way to slow down cancer rates, minimize suffering and ultimately save future potential victims of this disease, then I am in. I look forward to working hard as a team to all get stronger in life, as individuals, and as a loving and enthusiastic-about-life community.
I've already got my bike and helmet, but to guarantee my Ride success, I need your help today!
