Support My Ride to Conquer Cancer
Thank you for visiting my personal page! This year I have committed to partaking in the ride to conquer Cancer and raising funds, in support of Cancer research. Of course this will be a challenge. From my past experience participating in this event, I figured out pretty quick that it is no joke. Two consecutive days of riding 110km plus in whatever weather Mother Nature decides to give you. I recall feeling the pain of kilometers 95-110 and that's when I started to mentally and physically slip. I vividly remember what kept me going that day - the pain and suffering that any cancer patient goes through is NOTHING compared to the temporary agony I was feeling. I used that as motivation to keep pushing on...one more pedal, one more breath, one more hill, one more KM...all the way to the end.
When I participated in this event 8 years ago I knew close friends who had been affected by Cancer - once again I'll be Riding for them. As well, since my last ride I have had close family members suffer from this shitty disease- I'll also be dedicating my ride to them.
Each rider is given the option if they'd like to have their donations contribute to a specific type of Cancer research. I've chosen lung Cancer, as this is what took my grabdmorher's life prematurely when she lost her 8 month battle a few years ago.
Contribute to this history-making event with a donation. Funds raised in The Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer will support breakthrough research, exemplary teaching, and compassionate care at the Alberta Cancer Foundation, a leader in cancer research and treatment.
Thank you in advance for your help.
