Thank you for taking the time to read my page. I am participating in Cops for Cancer Tour De Valley to support the mission of the Canadian Cancer Society.
Many of you are familiar with the Wishes Without Borders BC Childrens Toy Drive I've done for the last 10 years. This is yet another venture I'm embarking on to do my part in trying to help kids just be kids. I am riding for the thousands of kids enduring childhood cancer, kids that aren’t able to just be kids because they’re too busy going through chemo and fighting for their lives. The journey we are embarking on spans 9 days and is over 850kms of pedalling that will include riding between Tsawwassen and White Rock and continuing through Langley and the Fraser Valley to Boston Bar.
The Tour de Valley team has adopted a very special word, "OHANA". In Hawaiian culture, Ohana represents the idea that families — blood-related, adopted, or intentional — are bound together, and that family members are responsible for one another and nobody gets left behind or forgotten.
In my family, my mother was also just recently diagnosed with cancer, so this ride has an even greater meaning for me to take on this challenge for my family and make a difference.
The money raised from this event helps fund leading-edge cancer research that is improving cancer treatments, preventing cancer and saving lives; provide reliable and up-to-date information on cancer, risk reduction and treatment; offer vital community-based support services for children living with cancer, such as Camp Goodtimes in Maple Ridge BC
Please pledge me and help me reach my fundraising goal! Every pledge takes us one step further in the fight against cancer. Online pledging is secure and it saves the Canadian Cancer Society money by reducing administrative costs.
Thanks for your support!
