Cycling for the Cure

Strength in numbers has never mattered more than in the fight against cancer.

 

That’s why we’re teaming up for The Enbridge® Ride to Conquer Cancer® benefiting Princess Margaret Cancer Centre one of the top 5 cancer research centres in the world, and helping cancer patients right here in Ontario.! It’s a two-day, 200+kilometer cycling journey from Toronto to Niagara Falls that we’ll be making on June 10-11, 2017.

 

Cancer spares no one. It affects parents, partners, siblings, friends and many more. But we refuse to back down to this disease. Together, we can amplify our impact in both Riders and donations to Conquer Cancer In Our Lifetime.

 

We are dedicating this years Ride to our teammate Lee Petersen who recently lost her 8 year battle with cancer. After completing the inaugural Ride in 2008 Lee learned she had Ovarian Cancer but continued to do the Ride year after year completing 7 more times, often having Chemo just before/after the Ride. During this period she participated in several trial clinics which she credits for allowing her to live life to the fullest and tick off several items from the "bucket list". During these years she was a goodwill ambassador for PMCC speaking at public and corporate events. We will sorely miss her wit, humor and positivity.
