I am participating in Cops for Cancer Tour de Golden Horseshoe to support the mission of the Canadian Cancer Society.
Six years ago I watched my bestfriend of 30 years lose his battle with cancer. I feel this loss everyday, as I am positive many others do who have lost a loved one to this disease. I can't imagine the struggle a parent faces as they watch their child endure a brave fight with pediactric cancer. Hopefully one day, through efforts such as this, we can bring cancer research one step closer to finding a cure. I am honoured to be a part of this team, riding alongside others who have similar stories to tell or simply want to make a difference in someone else's life.
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.
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!
