The Last (minute) Hurrah
Please Support My Ride to Conquer Cancer® for Bodil.
This year shall be my last hurrah with the Ride to Conquer Cancer. I know that may sound familiar, as I was certain 2016 would be my final ride BUT this month I was saddened to hear about the sudden passing of a friend of mine from university. Bodil was a cheerful, kind and gentle person who welcomed me into her home for a very snowy Swedish Christmas, back in 2010. I've never had so much herring in one sitting and I'd never seen snow drifts that high. Although we hadn't seen each other in many years, I always thought there was time to catch up again, perhaps in Canada this time. That wasn't to be. Cancer is a disease that sneaks up on us and steals away our loved one's and it's for this reason that I have decided to ride one last time.
With only a few weeks to go, I need to raise $2500. If you want to contribute to this powerful movement, please make a donation of any amount you can spare, ask your collegues at work to do the same or simply forward my donation page to your facebook friends. Unfortunately, due to a prolonged illness, I haven't been on my bike and haven't trained BUT I'm sure I can still make it despite that. All I need now are donations to make it happen :)
Funds raised through the Ride to Conquer Cancer will support life-saving research and enhancements to care at the BC Cancer Agency, bringing hope to cancer patients in B.C. and around the world. If you'd like to see where your money goes and how it can help, check out this CBC documentary, Cracking Cancer. It follows a group of patients, all with incurable cancer, through the highly experimental clinical trial at the BC Cancer Agency, a trial that holds the promise of personalized cancer diagnosis and treatment. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2OC5gSrEyHA
The Ride to Conquer Cancer benefiting BC Cancer Foundation, is a 250km, two-day cycling journey from Vancouver to Seattle, taking place August 26 and 27th. It will be a challenge in a number of ways, but with your generosity, a real impact can and will be made.
Thank you for supporting me <3
