Marc Yeon's 2017 Tour De Rock Fundraising Page
I am grateful to be one of the selected riders for the 2017 Tour De Rock. This year marks the 20th year that the ride has been held on Vancouver island and myself and 23 other riders will be riding from the Northern tip of the island all the way down to Victoria, a trek that will take 2 weeks and 1000kms.
I am riding this year for every family that has ever or will ever hear the words: "Your child has been diagnosed with cancer". After having lost two of my Grand-parents to cancer in the span of 5-6 months and seeing the effect that the situation had on myself and my family, I am doing this so that one day, no family has to go through what mine went through.
I will leave you with this last thought. It costs $1500 to send one child to Camp Goodtimes for a week during the summer. This opportunity gives the child and their family a chance to forget about the treatments, the needles, the pain of cancer and just be kids again. For one week, they experience a summer that we all wish we could have and it only takes $1500.
Thank you for your support and for making a difference in the life of a child fighting cancer.
