Team RBC : One Team, One Dream to Conquer Cancer.
We are Team RBC and we want to do our part to help fight one of the most devastating and pervasive diseases of our lifetimes. We have an opportunity to make a difference, by improving and saving lives. The statistics are startling:
1 in 2 Canadians will experience cancer in their lifetime 1 in 4 Canadians will die from cancer.
Many of us have already been affected by the disease in one way or another. Between friends, family and colleagues, cancer strikes all ages, ethnicities and demographics. If we consider that most of us come from households of four to five people, the prevalence of cancer truly hits close to home. So this brings about an the all important question: What can we do?
This August we will be riding from Vancouver to Hope in the 12th Annual Ride to Conquer Cancer. Along with thousands of other riders, we will embark on a two day journey which will traverse over 220km, to fundraise for a world free from cancer. Since its inception in 2009, the Ride to Conquer Cancer has raised $110 million in support of cancer research.
The donations to the Ride benefit the B.C. Cancer Foundation, funding everything from ground breaking research to the development of new screening & treatment technologies. The BC Cancer Foundation is the fundraising partner of BC Cancer and the largest funder of cancer research in the province. With the help of thousands of riders we are improving the lives of people facing cancer in BC and beyond. Every dollar raised gets us one step closer to a cure. It is here in B.C. that we are making these breakthroughs today.
Please consider joining Team RBC as a rider or make a donation to this important cause.
Thank you for your support,
Jon Adams - Captain of Team RBC
