Support My Ride to Conquer Cancer®
Welcome to my Personal Page! August 2016 I completed my first ever Ride to Conquor Cancer weekend presented by Silver Wheaton benefiting BC Cancer Foundation, a two-day cycling journey, through the beautiful Pacific region from Vancouver, BC to Seattle, WA. The decision to ride again in the 2017 Ride August 26 and 27 was an easy one albeit will be my final one. This year I will ride with my husband and daughter Melissa (her first) and the rest of our team of dear friends. Our oldest daughter Amanda is participating, alongside a group of friends, as pit crew for us.
I ride for those I have cried with when first diagnosed, rejoiced with in remission and grieved for when having left us too soon. 2015 was a tough year for a core group of friends. We lost a wonderful woman who taught us about grace, dignity and fight! A woman who became much more than a friend she became family. I had hoped to not have to add any names to my helmut but a few more friends and family are or have embarked on their journey with cancer since the ride last year. It is this group of people that inspire me to do this ride one more time.
In order for me to complete this ride I must raise a minimum of $2,500. With your help this is our chance to contribute and to help make a difference. Research is the key to getting ahead of this disease. I cannot help with that but I can help raise money and I can ride! All proceeds go to BC Cancer Foundation, who use the money for world-class research, as well as cancer treatment and education. And they use it as soon as they receive it, not when the bike ride happens. If you know me you will know that I don’t like asking people for money I would much rather give but yes, this is a request for your financial support.
I thank you in advance for considering to partner with me with whatever you can give.
