Welcome to Mara's Ride Page
At this time three years ago I wouldn't have dreamed that my future self would be preparing for another Ride to Conquer Cancer alongside a team dedicated to the memory of a dear friend. Instead at that time, I--like all of Linnea's family and friends--were holding on to the sliver of hope that her recent diagnosis would end differently than what the statistics threatened for those with triple negative breast cancer. Unfortunately, we lost our beautiful Linnea in 2016. But through this journey, two bike rides later, and with a team that has become my family, I have come to realize that her story ISN'T finished yet. Nor are the stories of countless others who have braved and battled cancer, some who are still with us and some who are not. We carry those stories with us as we train, as we ride, and as we raise money to help fund breakthroughs in research that WILL change someone's cancer journey.
Please consider donating to my ride as I pedal my way to a minimum goal of $2500. Funds raised in The Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer not only support research, but also exemplary teaching as well as compassionate care at the Alberta Cancer Foundation, a leader in cancer research and treatment. All of those facets are essential to the physical and mental health of a cancer patient which in turn help the health and well-being of their caregiver(s).
Thank you in advance for your help, whether that be through a monetary donation, words of encouragement during training, or simply sharing Linnea's story or perhaps a story that is dear to you. Learn more about our team at linneaslegion.ca
