Help support me on my Ride to Conquer Cancer!
There is so little is known about many types of cancer and it just continues to grow. In 2017 alone there were over 200,000 new cases of cancer in Canada. When will it become a disease of the past? We need to research it, study it and conquer it so that no more families needlessly suffer.
Cancer research has made great strides over the past decades yet only 60% of Canadians diagnosed will survive after 5 years. We can't simply accept that as good enough. We need to make cancer research a priority. More money needs to be given to cancer research to fast track treatments and cures as well as drastically improve the quality of life for those still battling the disease.
So what can we do to help?
What can I do that says "I'm here fighting WITH you and FOR you"?
I can raise funds - funds that go directly towards the Alberta Cancer Foundation as well as a dozen other cancer centres across Alberta.
I can physically show that I'm fighting for you by getting kicked in the butt by biking up steep hills, training every week and to eventually feel my legs and lungs on fire as I bike over 200kms in 2 days.
I joined Linnea's Legion in the Ride to Conquer Cancer. Linnea's Legion is founded by Todd Kemper who lost his beautiful wife Linnea in 2016 only a few weeks after their first Ride to Conquer Cancer in her name. Together we are raising funds that will support breakthrough research, exemplary teaching, and compassionate care.
Over the next few months I'm going to be putting in some hard work fundraising and cycling but if I want to reach my fundraising goal of $2500 I'll need some help from you.
Every donation, no matter how little, counts and is greatly appreciated. If money is tight I completely understand so please consider showing your support by sharing my fundraising page with others you know or sending me words of encouragement through the training period.
