4th Consecutive Ride to Conquer Cancer
Please join my team or support my Ride to Conquer Cancer!
The Ride to Conquer Cancer is a two-day cycling journey over 200+km. In past years this ride was from Vancouver to Seattle, but marking the 10th anniversary of the ride the route will remain in Canada as we ride for hope, and to Hope, BC . This will be my 4th consecutive year doing this amazing ride. Over the previous 3 rides, with incredible support from friends and family, I raised over $20,000 for BC Cancer Foundation. Last year was also special as I recruited 4 first time riders who became part of this epic journey.
Thank you to all my past donors and fellow riders for supporting such a worthy cause, it really means alot to me. Again this year I am the captain of Team RBC. This year will be very special as RBC has become a ride sponsor which will help make this ride better than ever! I hope to recruit even more friends, family members, and colleagues to join this epic ride. The ride is a challenge in many ways, but with a bike, a helmet, and amazing generosity, a real impact will be made!
WHY DO I RIDE:
This year has started out challenging, only 6 weeks into 2018 I have lost 3 RBC colleagues who have passed away far too early. I dedicate my 2018 ride to Sue, Robyn, and Paul. One thing I have learned over these past few years is that, unfortunately, there is no lack of motivation. I am constantly hearing of individuals who have been diagnosed, are in treatment, or some who have sadly lost the battle. Something must be done, as we are all affected by cancer one way or another.
Another very special person I ride for is my Dad who had an epic battle with cancer which ended after a 15 year fight. Tom's courage and drive to fight this disease is largely credited to him enduring as long as he did, however progress made with early detection and treatment also contributed in allowing him to enjoy a decade and a half of amazing memories. This 2018 "Ride to Conquer Cancer" will take place 4 years after his passing. Tom was a difference maker; he inspired many people who knew him. This ride is one way I honour my Dad and leverage the inspiration he has left me. I want to give back to BC Cancer Foundation, hopefully inspire others along the way, and most importantly challenge this world as we know it. I want a future where my son and daughter won't need to worry about cancer. WE NEED A CURE!
Many will know that, like my Dad, I don't often want to burden others or ask for help, however this fight to Conquer Cancer is worth putting my pride aside.
PLEASE support me in this journey, even a small donation will make a big difference. My Goal is to raise $7500+ again this year Please share my personal link with others to help me spread the word.
To my friends, family and co-workers who took the time to read my story I hope you are inspired to make a donation and/or join my Ride to Conquer Cancer Team in support of this great cause. Thank you!
