Support My Ride to Conquer Cancer®
Welcome to my Personal Donation Page! The Ride to Conquer Cancer benefiting the BC Cancer Foundation, is a two-day cycling journey, from Vancouver to Seattle the weekend of August 26-27, 2017. This will be the seventh year that I have done the Ride and each year has been an amazing experiencience.
KPMG has embraced the Ride and over the past five years my team as raised over $820,000 for cancer research. Nationally KPMG has raised over $5.5 million for cancer research since 2010 participating in Rides to Conquer Cancer across Canada. I look forward to riding with co-workers from KPMG - Team Keep Pedaling More Giving and making some new friends along the way.
This year I signed up for three specific reasons:
1) my Dad was diagnosed with a brain tumour and had surgery to remove it in January - thankfully the tumour was benign!
2) the wife of a friend I ride with has been winning the fight with breast cancer since last fall and continues to undergo treatment
3) our team, Team KPMG, is $176,000 away from having raised $1 million for the BC Cancer Foundation through our participation in the Ride - and this will be the year that we go over the $1 million mark!
My family like so many others has dealt with cancer, with my grandmother surving breast cancer and my dad, Bob, and wife Elaine, having dealt with forms of skin cancer over past number of years. Elaine's family has also been impacted by this disease, and she has lost aunts, an uncle, and a grandfather to different forms of cancer. So I will be cycling 250km this August with many family members in my mind, urging me on to the finish line.
