We have decided to team up in The Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer. It is a couple days ride out of Calgary through the foothills - pretty much to Okotoks and back and 114 km each day. This ride helps generate awareness for critical cancer research at the Alberta Cancer Foundation.
We’re doing this for a lot of reasons, but especially for the special people in our lives that are fighting this disease right now... love you Aunty Lorraine and Gramma J! And for their families who are struggling and hurting right along side them... : (
I suggested the name Legacy for our team because it signifies to me the legacy we have been gifted just by having these very special people in our lives and our family's lives... and to recognize the legacy of the hurt and pain that cancer causes us all. One thing I have certainly observed is how families (blood-related or not) come together when we're needed and it is because of the amazing people and the legacy they instill in us...
By riding in this event, we're hoping we can do something small to support and to honor the legacy of the special people that are still with us and fighting and those we have unfortunately already lost...
By joining us or donating to us... you can do the same!
Thank you sincerely for any support you may offer!
