Support My Ride to Conquer Cancer®
We have all been touched by someone close to us who has battled cancer. It's a challenge that I cannot even imagine (and hope I never have to). Instead I have decided to take on the challenge of cycling to Seattle over a 2 day period! Sounds a little crazy for this runner/weight-lifter and newbie cyclist.....but I love a good challenge.
According to Canadian Cancer Statistics, 171,000 new cases of cancer and 75,300 deaths from cancer occurred in 2009. The information also shows that over 45% of men and 40% of women will develop cancer in their lifetime and 1 in all 4 Canadians will die of cancer. That's seriously just wayyy too many!
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 have chosen to have my donations go towards breast cancer, as I know quite a few people in my life who have had to deal with this type of Cancer.
By committing to doing the Race to Conquer Cancer I have a hefty $2500 goal, all donations, big and small, are greatly appreciated!
Thank you in advance for your support!
