2020... is definitely one for the memory books and will be talked about for many years to come... and though it has been a less than stellar year, it can still be another year filled with hope and optimism and to be a part of something incredible!
This year would've been the Ride to Conquer Cancer's 12th year. And it would've been my 4th year riding but due to these unprecedented times, this year's ride as been cancelled or better to say, postponed until 2021! But just because the ride is postponed, doesn't mean that cancer is on hold, so despite everything that's happened this year, we will still have people hearing the words, "You have cancer". On average, 617 Canadians hear those devastating words EVERY SINGLE DAY! The truth is, cancer doesn't discriminate and sometimes it just happens. What we can do is find better ways to treat it and that takes research. And research takes funding. This is where WE come in. I say, WE, because TOGETHER is how we can make a difference. I'll do the miles, as long as I can get your support! But it's not the distance I go that will make a lasting impact – it's the donation support you provide to BC Cancer Foundation through my Ride. Whatever you’re able to give, THANK YOU. Every dollar you donate means a dollar more to the world leading scientists and doctors at BC Cancer who are conquering cancer.
As I did in my first year of riding in 2015, I continue to ride in memory of both, my beloved grandfather, who passed from lung & colon cancer on the exact day of my 11th birthday and my father-in-law, who passed from colon cancer when my husband was only 16 years old. I am also riding for my dear family and friends who are battling this disease right now! So please continue to help me in my efforts and support me in my journey!
Much love, Anthea
All funds raised through The Ride for the BC Cancer Foundation will support cancer research, treatment, and services at the BC Cancer Agency.
I really believe we can conquer cancer together, and it's through your generosity that we'll be able to do it! <3
