Bloor West Village Idiots
As one of less than two dozen teams that have been present for each Ride to Conquer Cancer, the Bloor West Village Idiots will be back for our the 10th Ride to Conquer Cancer on June 10 and 11, 2017. Over the past 9 years of the Ride, the Idiots have contributed about $576,119 to the research programs at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.
Thank-you so much for supporting our team. We face another long year of fundraising and training, but every sore muscle is worth it because we know how important it is to raise these funds for cancer research.
We are committed to this because we know that cancer is too big a disease to ignore. Sadly, just about everyone knows someone who has gone through cancer treatment.
Individually, none of us are going to find a cure for cancer, but there is no denying the cumulative effects of small actions. By riding in this event and raising our small part we are helping the teams of brilliant scientists who are making tremendous advances. The 2016 Ride to Conquer raised over $17 million for cancer research and treatment; over the past nine years The Ride has raised about $155 million.
For the survivors on our team, participating in the Ride to Conquer Cancer is an opportunity to give back to those responsible for saving their lives and for some, who are still fighting against cancer, the ride provides an opportunity to invest in the future.
