Welcome to My Personal Page
Support My Ride to Conquer Cancer®
As you may know, my family has been profoundly touched by cancer. Not only my 2 boys and I with my wife, Susan and my sister-in-law, Moira Hoogveld, my new family has also been touched with the loss of Peter Marsh, Debbie’s husband and Heather Cardinal, Debbie’s extended-kids mother. I know many of my friends and colleagues have been touched in the same way by this dreaded disease. We are either a survivor; we are fighting our way through this disease; we have lost loved ones to it; or we are caring for a loved one with cancer at this very moment. No matter where we are in this picture, we know a cure has to be found!
For the 6th year now, I am participating in The Ride to Conquer Cancer, a 260 km cycling advent through the Pacific Northwest to raise money for cancer research. I am telling you this because I believe you agree with me that even modest headways in research give us hope for the future……A Cancer Free FUTURE!!
The Ride to Conquer Cancer benefiting the BC Cancer Foundation will directly support leading clinicians, scientists, and researchers whose search for new discoveries and improved patient outcomes will have a real impact in our communities throughout the province, across Canada, and around the world. It is a challenge in a number of ways, but with my bike, my helmet, and your generosity, a significant impact can be made!
With 5 years of doing this ride, I have already raised over $33,000.00 individually and I am looking to increase that amount considerably. I am counting on you and trust that you will help me support this worthwhile cause as I am dedicating this years ride to my nephew, Josh (UCO Bronchos#4) who is also fighting this horrible disease as we speak. All my proceeds for my ride will go towards Testicular Cancer in Josh's name.
I want you to know that I so appreciate those that join with me in this small effort to help. We all do our part where we can and when we are able to, therefor, even good wishes are appreciated.

On behalf of my family; Coulson, Matthew, Debbie, Courtney, Joe, Jackson, Ava, Jason, Praveen, Kyle, Kelsey, Tory, Derek and I, we would like to thank you for all your support.
