Support My Ride to Conquer Cancer®
Welcome to the offical George Cavey, "I Hate Cancer", personal fund raising page! As many of you know "The Ride to Conquer Cancer " is presented by Silver Wheaton, a great mining company (note obvious promotional plug!) that benefits the BC Cancer Foundation and is a two-day bike ride from Vancouver to the outskirks of Seatlle during the last weekend of August. It is always a challenge in a number of ways, but with your generosity, a real impact will be made as long as my butt holds out for two 125km days!
This is my first year on the Ride and I am doing so to honor two individuals would have recently lost their battles with this awfull disease, Rob Deverall and Greg Hobin. Greg is a long time friend of my family and Rob is a hockey teammate of mine and has been a teammate and friend for more than 30 years. I ride for them!
Please contribute to this great cause. 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.
One option the BC Cancer Agency has offered the riders is the ability to select a type of cancer we would like to direct the money I raise to support. In my case, I have selected prostate cancer, the number one cancer killer of men. This form of cancer has affected a number of my hockey teammates who have very fortunately, "kicked their cancer in the ass" and are alive today because of the advances in medical research related to prostate cancer. So it is also for them that I ride as a reminder that the money raised does save lives.
So please give generously so that my small part in this battle may help more people who may face their own battle with cancer!
Thank you in advance for your help.
