My 2018 Ride to Conquer Cancer
Why do I ride 250+ kilometres in two days?
Welcome to Rob's Ride! 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. This will mark my fourth ride in BC and my fifth ride overall (I rode in Alberta before moving to BC). This will also be the 10th Anniversary of the Ride to Conquer Cancer, and the first all-Canadian ride in BC (we won't be riding to Seattle)!
I have had the privilege of becoming part of a great team of riders - Riders for Ryders - here in BC. We are more than just a team. We are family - riding together, supporting each other, spurring each other on, and encouraging each other both on and off our bikes. This family has been an inspiration to me, and I look forward to riding with them each year. In 2017 we were close to 100 strong!
Why do I do this ride? It is simple. I can not find a cure for cancer. I would love to....but it is not within my abilities. Every year, another friend or family member hears "You're cancer has returned," or "You have cancer." That needs to STOP! I don't want to lose anyone else from my life to this disease. So...I get on my bike - I train - I push myself - I ride 250+ kilometres over two days with friends who feel the same as I do. We do it because it is something that we can do. I don't feel quite as helpless being so far away from so many of my friends with cancer. I feel like I'm helping, in some small way, through my ride and fundraising, to find a cure.
My goal is to raise $2,500. I would love to make that $25,000 or $50,000. Please consider becoming a part of my ride and a part of this journey through a donation to my ride.
I ride for those that I have lost, and those who are fighting...Grandma, Aunt Mavis, Lisa, Uncle Ron, Wayne, Heather, Bill, Deneise, Becky, Uncle Wayne, Cousin Jeff, Sara...
This is your chance to contribute to this history-making event 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.
Thank you in advance for your help.
