Think of it as a history-making opportunity for you to do something big about cancer, something epic. Like Riding for two whole days along the majestic Rockies on June 26-27, 2010. Sure, it sounds like a feat… and it’s meant to be. The conquest of cancer is a monumental task and won’t be easy. But make no mistake, this event isn’t just for athletes or cycling enthusiasts. The Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer is for anyone who wants to challenge themselves for a great cause. Even people who haven’t ridden since they were twelve. All you need is motivation, a bike, and a helmet. The rest is history. Be part of it.
MAKE AN IMPACT
Right now, 2 in 5 people will hear the words: “You have cancer” in their lifetime. Those words will transform their life and the lives of their loved ones forever. In only one year only, The Ride to Conquer Cancer raised over $6.9 million.
The money you raise for the Alberta Cancer Foundation through The Ride will directly support patients and families at the Tom Baker Cancer Centre in Calgary, the Cross Cancer Institute in Edmonton and 15 cancer centres throughout Alberta. The Alberta Cancer Foundation provides funding to a team of top doctors and scientists whose search for new discoveries and improved patient outcomes will have a real impact in your community, across Canada, and around the world. In other words, your participation will accelerate the conquest of cancer.
PROFILES OF COURAGE
You don’t have to be rich to participate in The Ride. And you don’t have to be an athlete, either. Whether you’re 25 or 75, a fitness freak or a couch potato, a banker or a barista, you can absolutely do this. With our support, you will not only raise an incredible amount of money for cancer research, but also be completely ready to cycle the most meaningful ride of your life.Meet Michael Huisman -
