Its taken me awhile to know what to write this year. The Tour de Cure, formally known as the Ride to Conquer Cancer, has been part of my life since 2009 when I first registered in the memory of my cousin Karen.

Its been an amazing experience that I'm thankful for being introduced to and taking part to do what I can to support the work and research done by the BC Cancer Foundation. As part of Team CTV, I was able to share in raising over $1.5 million, while individually raising over $25,000 through the generous donations from my friends and family.

Through this whole experience, my Dad was always by my side. Driving me to the Start line (and sharing in my breakfast), Cheering me on with the rest of the family at the Finish line, Enjoying the Post Ride Meal together, and of course being a Constant Supporter Donating to my Fundraising, and the Strongest Voice Behind Me.

It's with a heavy heart that I realize that he will no longer be there to enjoy the festivities of the event with me, and that after his brave fight with Lung Cancer, it is him who I will now be riding for.

Because of this, finding a way to keep my dad involved in the ride in Spirit seemed like the perfect way to honour how he has always been part of my team.

The Flying Tigers is named after my Dads CB Radio Call Name, which he would bring out on road trips when I was growing up. In this team, I hope to start a new legacy of involvment, support, and impact in bringing more awareness to the work being done to Conquer Cancer.

I look forward to you all joining me on my this journey in my ride involvement, and I thank you all for your continued support towards me. I know Dad would be proud to know he will still be able to be a big part of this!

Thanks for being on my team!

Derek
