Pushed by Celine, our 17 year old daughter, who very much wanted to make the experience her brothers made before her, by participating in the Ride to Conquer Cancer, we are back in the Ride this year to raise funds for the BC Cancer Foundation in support of cancer research in British Columbia.
In my role as CEO of Genome British Columbia I have a front row seat to observe what difference cancer research makes. New discoveries, particularly through the application of genomics, lead to earlier detection, more effective treatments and better long term health outcomes. We are very fortunate in BC to not only have a very effective, province wide cancer agency, which gives all British Columbians access to world class cancer treatment, but we are also home to a phenomenal cancer research cluster and the support the BC Cancer Foundation provides to our researchers is essential for them to do their outstanding work and for doing so in BC.
The Ride is an important fundraiser for the BC Cancer Foundation. But it is about more than just the money: the Ride to Conquer Cancer also raises the awarness and brings us together as a community. I have been spared cancer, as has my immmediate family and we are very fortunate indeed, but many others among our friends and acquaintances have not been that lucky. It is for everybody affected today and in the future that I will be riding with my family.
You may very well have been asked already by many other riders to support them, but I hope that more of you will contribute to this effort by supporting our ride as the Spothelfer family.
