Support My Ride to Conquer Cancer®
Welcome to Kara's Page! The Ride to Conquer Cancer presented by Silver Wheaton benefiting BC Cancer Foundation, is a two-day cycling journey, through the beautiful Pacific region taking place in the summer. 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!
I am riding to build hope in the fight to conquer cancer. I have been touched by Sheryl, a close friend who was diagnosed at 36 with stage 4 breast cancer. Sheryl endured cancer for almost 5 years but stage 4 breast cancer is not a disease that can be fought. Her fight was to make the most of her uncertain, limited time that she had after being diagnosed. Her positive attitude drives me to push my limits. This ride will push me further than I have ever gone on a bicycle. Scary but not as scary as cancer!
Sheryl's last blog posted on May 28th gives inspiration to make the most out of life:
"-not giving up, about laughing when I should be crying. About learning how to take advantage of every minute because no one knows when the minutes will run out." - Sheryl
I ride on the UVic Peloton team to build hope that no one has to face this disease.
Working together we are stronger in our fight against cancer. Please join me in this fight.
