2017 - Louise Rides to Conquer Cancer
I can't believe it, WE ARE DOING IT AGAIN!
Welcome to my Personal Page! The Ride to Conquer Cancer benefiting BC Cancer Foundation, is a two-day cycling journey, through Canada's Pacific region into Seattle on August 26th and 27th. It will be a challenge in a number of ways, but with my bike, my helmet, and your generosity, a real impact will be made! Last year our ride raised 10.4 million dollars for Cancer research.
Gord and I will be riding and fundraising to honour his Uncle Dennis who lost his battle with Cancer in 2006. This is our FIFTH consecutive ride with over two thousand kilometers of peddling at the event and in training. Although we will be riding with Dennis and our friends in mind we also ride for 2 in 5 Canadians who will hear the words "you have Cancer". As a result of these staggering statistics we know Cancer is affecting millions of Canadian families.
This has to change.
Not only have we personally donated to the cause but we will also dedicate hundreds of kilometers on the road in training preparation for the 2 day ride.
Our first goal is to raise $1000 each by April 15th. if you can, now is the time and we would really appreciate your support.
Funds raised in The Ride to Conquer Cancer will support breakthrough research, exemplary teaching, and compassionate care made possible through BC Cancer Foundation, a leader in cancer research and care.
Everyone is affected by Cancer in some way, thank you in advance for your help.
