I am participating in Cops for Cancer: Tour de Coast to support the mission of the Canadian Cancer Society. Tour De Coast is a 800km tour that pedals across the Sunshine Coast, Sea-to-Sky Corridor and the Greater Vancouver Area from the North Shore to Port Moody.
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 people living with cancer and their families; and advocate for healthy public policies.
I am riding for my friend and colleague, Dave Colonval, who lost his battle with cancer in 2011. I am also riding for my friend and colleague Barb Martens who is continuing her battle and winning!! Other family and friends who have won and lost their battles with cancer will also be in my thoughts as I pedal my way over 800 km in September.
Please pledge me and help me reach my fundraising goal of $6000! 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!
