Why I am doing the ride
Cancer is everywhere.
I don't know if it's because I am exposed to more walks of life than previous years, but this year the C word seems to be prevalent down every avenue of my life.
Recently, I was talking to someone about their current situation and was introduced to "life after the diagnosis". It is a world that all patients who are diagnosed with Cancer, and everyone connected to them, lives in. It is a world that knows no outcome and a world that only people who are living and have lived in can relate to.
With the unpredictability of life, I too could live in that world one day. Fortunately, at this time in my life I am healthy. My body is able to handle a 125km / day bike ride and I would love nothing more than to utilize the gift of a healthy body to do this ride and fundraise for my friends and family that have had extremely painful years.
I have joined Team Perimeter for the second year, which was started by my uncle and has raised over $400,000 over the last few years. I am going to be riding alongside both my uncles (and the rest of the team) and some of my closest friends.
I hope you can see my passion and reasons as to why this weekend is so important to me. All donations benefit BC Cancer Foundation and 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.
