Support My Ride to Conquer Cancer®
Welcome to my Personal Page! The Ride to Conquer Cancer, benefiting BC Cancer Foundation, is a "crazy thing to do for a 63 year old who isn't very fit because he sits at a desk and did it last year so knows how hard it is", two-day cycling journey, through the beautiful Pacific region taking place on August 26 and 27th.
I am nowhere near ready (again) this year. My associate Cameron suggested I do it last year, (he, who is so much younger and so much more fit than I). He did it the year before in honour of his father in law who had died of cancer. Cameron reminded me of how much I was impacted by the death of Kathy Hildebrand in September 2015 - how upset I was. How much Cancer had affected so many of our clients. It seemed the right way to honour her - all the fun she represented - her funny sense of humour. She would appreciate how hard it is to do this two day grueling ride, and would have made some sarcastic remark about me doing it - and I would have loved it.
I am so fortunate in my career as a Wealth Advisor to meet and get to know, in such a deep a personal, way so many wonderful people. Yet I also am deeply affected by their loss. I am riding for all those who have meant so much to me, and Cancer has been taken from us. Kathy Hildebrand, Rich Dickson (who was smart and thoughtful) and Allan Bergman (one of the most generous and kind people I ever knew) are just some of the many who I miss so much because of Cancer.
Please - for all those you know and have known, who have been affected. Please - let’s try to make a world where no one else has to cry over the loss (as I am not ashamed to admit I did) of someone due to cancer.
Please join me in making a donation; to help defeat this "Emperor of all Maladies". Many believe that we are at the cusp of radical advances in Cancer detection and treatment. Research takes money - my money, and your money too.
I'm doing the hard part (and the emergency team that will try to resuscitate me). :)
