Support My Ride to Conquer Cancer®
Welcome to my Personal Page! The Ride to Conquer Cancer is a two-day cycling journey, through the beautiful Pacific region taking place August 26-27. 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 a group of us road in support of Nick Rutledge. Nick's a courageous young man who was battling a rare form of cancer. Less than a month removed from his final treatment, Nick joined us on last years ride as part of a support team. At every rest stop there was Nick smiling and encouraging us to keep going. He offerred to refill water bottles and hold bikes for those taking a break. His resilience and unbelievable ability maintain a positive attitude was inspiring to say the least. I am very pleased to be riding in support of Nick again this year as its been a year since he finished his treatments, and he's doing remarkably well. This past season he was able to get back into hockey by becoming a referee and by all accounts he's pretty good! It will great having Nick on the ride support team again this year as he is an inspiration to all the riders.
Unfortunately not everyone wins their battle with cancer and most, if not all, of us know someone who's lost their battle. With that in mind, as much as my ride this year is to celebrate Nick, it is also in memory for those that were not able to overcome this terrible disease.
As I did last year, I'll take all the names of people who support my ride with me on the two day journey because after all we're in this together!
Funds raised through the Ride to Conquer Cancer will 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 for your support........time to get out for a training ride!
