The Ride To Conquer Cancer – Vancouver, BC to Seattle WA – 2013

The Ride to Conquer Cancer – Alberta 2013 – 2 Whole Days Along The Magestic Rockies June 22-23, 2013

Since my father was diagnosed with Cancer in May 2011, he has had surgery to remove the mass in his colon, received chemotherapy treatments at The BC Cancer Clinic and amazing care throughout this entire ordeal.

The surgery and treatments have taken a toll on him.  He has lost a significant amount of weight and with that much of his strength.  It has been a very difficult time for my entire family, especially for my Mom who is trying to remain strong for my Dad.

I hope after this is all over he will be able to live the rest of his life cancer free and get back to living a full, meaningful life with my Mom and their new lil puppy Kia.

My Dad’s willingness to fight this terrible disease has inspired me to sign up again in 2013.  The Ride to Conquer Cancer benefiting BC Cancer Foundation, is a two-day cycling journey, through Canada’s Pacific Northwest taking place this summer.  It will be a challenge in a number of ways, but with my bike, my helmet, and your generosity, a real impact will be made.

Imagine if we could say that we found a cure for this terrible disease in our lifetime!

I would like to invite you all to be a part of my campaign either by joining my team as a rider, volunteer or by making a donation.

In addition, in the coming weeks and months I will be organizing Pub Nights, Comedy Nights, Cosmic Bowling, Garage Sale and much, much more so I hope to see you and your friends all out at one or more of those fun filled nights!!

New this year I will be loading my gear and my bike into my SUV and heading over to Alberta to participate in the 2013 Alberta Ride To Conquer Cancer benefiting the Alberta Cancer Foundation. I will leave Vancouver in order to arrive in time & prepare. I’ll return home the Monday evening after riding.  Just like the BC Ride to Conquer Cancer I am obligated to raise a minimum of $2500.00 in order to participate.

Lastly, please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, sponsorship / fundraising ideas or would like to make a donation to this worthwhile cause.
