Welcome to Chris Port's 2019 Ride To Conquer Cancer Page
It is now up to all of us to carry on Jordan and Emma's legacy. We also have to keep their passion and love for life alive through us all. I challenge each and every one of you to find something that you are passionate about and make it happen. Maybe you've always wanted to travel or take up a new hobby or learn a language or maybe even try a new career and try to find your dream job like Jordan did. All the stuff that Emma never got a chance to experience.
I for one am committing to do everything possible to end cancer once and for all so it can no longer hurt our loved ones. I have now succesfully completed the 2017 Ride to Conquer Cancer from Vancouver to Seattle and the 2018 Ride from Vancouver to Chilliwack and I have managed to raise over $10,000 in total. I want to give a huge tahnk you to all of you wonderful people who have supported me and donated to my cause! Bioth rides were grueling in terms of distance and weather, but thanks to all the people supporting me and my awesome teammates I had an absolute blast.
I have signed up for the 2019 Ride to Conquer Cancer which will be a 200+ km ride from Vancouver to Chilliwack to Hope. I am riding once again for the people we have lost to cancer, including Jordan, Emma, my Grandpa Bill, my Uncle Art, my friend's father Joe Fodor, my brother in law's father Dennis, my high school friend Manda Smith, our fearless team leader's son Ryder Brockett and the far too many other friends and family that we have lost to the disease over the years. But I am also riding for the people that are currently fighting or have beaten cancer. My friends Michelle and Anna, two of the most down to earth and positive people I have ever met.
My goal this year is raise over $5000 once again and also to sign up 5 people to do the Ride to Conquer Cancer with me on the awesome Riders for Ryders team. Our team goal is to have 333 members and raise $1 million, in honour of our captain Jimi's son Ryder who passed away 8 years ago from brain cancer. The number 33 was Ryder's favourite number and red was his favourite colour, so if you keep an eye open I'm sure you will see some of us out there on the roads wearing our red #33 Riders for Ryders jerseys as we train for the 2019 Ride to Conquer Cancer.
Thank you in advance for your generosity and support for this terrific cause.
