Welcome to Jill's Ride Page!
I'm back!!!!! Last year was my first year participating in the Ride to Conquer Cancer as a proud member of Linnea's Legion!!!! ! I was overwhelmed by all the support from friends and family. Thank you! Together with all the other riders we raised $6.7 million dollars for the Alberta Cancer Foundation!!!! This is an organization close to my heart.
Cancer has taken a heartbreaking toll on my friends and family. We lost our beautiful friend Linnea to breast cancer in September 2016. My Dad's wife, Marion, passed away in March 2017 after a 15-year battle with breast cancer. My uncle Jim was diagnosed with leukemia in December 2016 and has shown an outstanding response to treatment!
One of the last conversations I had with Linnea was about the importance of being healthy and taking care of ourselves. It's took a lot of encouragement from Todd, Mara and my family that I was capable of riding 200km. I am nervous to take on this ride again but am growing more confident as a biker as I keep focusing on challenging myself to take more risks! I could not be more proud to ride alongside this amazing group of friends.
The money that I am raising for this ride will go towards cancer research and treatment in Alberta. It is crucial that our researchers and medical professionals have the necessary funding to continue with research, drug trials, and innovative treatments. Through continued support, we can surely make great strides for those who ARE and WILL be affected by cancer.
Please consider donating to my ride as I pedal my way to my goal of $2500. Linnea's Legion has a team goal of $100,000 this year and more riders joining us by the day! Funds raised in The Ride to Conquer Cancer not only support breakthrough research, but also exemplary teaching and 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 the cancer patient and their caregivers.
Thank you in advance for your help, whether it is through a monetary donation, words of encouragement during training, cheering us on during the ride or simply sharing our stories. Learn more about our team at linneaslegion.ca
