RJC - Ginger locks for Cancer
Support My Ride to Conquer Cancer®
The name is Colin Tougas, I've been riding for as long as I can remember. I've never been a long-distance rider until 2012 where I undertook the pilgrimage of the 88 temples of Shikoku. It was 2 weeks, riding about 90km's a day in 35°C+/90% humidity weather, collecting stamps/calligraphy from each temple around the island of Shikoku, Japan. It was during this journey that I was accepted into the Building Science Program at BCIT, which eventually led to my working at RJC. Riding has almost always been a rewarding experience for me and, I'm sorry, is way better than running.
My experiences with cancer have all been second hand. I've had friends, coworkers, and family who it has effected very personally, and I've seen the impact of it on their lives. Some, to this day, live in fear of a recurrence, some have had some of their options for the future severely reduced. These are the people I ride for, for those who may have it in the future, either for the first time or recurrence.
If you're looking for a place to contibute, any little bit helps. I'll continue to raise funds well after I reach my goal, to raise funds for The Ride to Conquer Cancer, who support life-saving research and enhancements to care at the BC Cancer Agency, bringing hope to cancer patients in B.C. and beyond.
Thank you in advance for your help.
