Support My Ride to Conquer Cancer®
Welcome to my Personal Page! The Ride to Conquer Cancer, presented by Silver Wheaton benefiting BC Cancer Foundation, is a two-day cycling journey (250 km), through the beautiful Pacific region taking place in the summer. Contribute to this powerful movement with a donation. 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.
I pledge to completely shave my head clean if I reach my goal of $2500 by August!! (The actual shave will occur during or after the event)
Why I chose to join the cause:
"I have chosen to participate in this event as I know of friends and family who have beaten or are battling cancer; it is a very heavy feeling. Now several people have brought up that these donations are futile and that it is just a waste of money, but imagine if research on chemo, radiation or surgical treatments were not funded back in the day. The purpose of cancer research is not to simply find a cure, but it also includes research with improving current treatments, improving symptom management, improving preventative measures for the disease and so much more. Cancer is a very complex phenomenon that occurs in the body; science has made leaps and bounds, but it can always do better.
I still have thousands of dollars in student loans to pay off, but I am willing to donate a few hundred dollars myself; I will be matching the first few donations until I have personally donated $500. I will be able to make up for the money; the bank can wait and will be happier. Unfortunately, cancer is not as forgiving. Skip the pre-work latte at Starbucks for a day or two and donate today!”
I am asking for at least $50 per donation to help me meet my goal, but anything helps!
Special thanks to Ranjit Thandi who donated $50 in cash to help me raise $2500
