Over the past 11 years, my wife Carol and I participated in the "Ride to Conquer Cancer." Through the generosity of many friends, we have helped raise over $80,000 to support ground breaking cancer research and care at the BC Cancer Agency.
With covid restrictions still limiting large fundraising events, the R2CC has been reincarnated as the "Tour de Cure." This is do-it-yourself ride, on a route determined by each rider. So, on Aug. 28, 2021, Carol and I will find a scenic 100 km to cycle somewhere between Hope and points north or perhaps east of Pemberton. Although we will miss the energy and emotion of the morning mass start and the evening camp, with inspirational speeches to get us going, I'm sure we will still enjoy the ride with a friend or two. And importantly, we can spend time contemplating how cancer has impacted so many lives, and the remarkable progress made in cancer research over recent years.
Please consider sponsoring one of us (or any other TdC rider).
Thanks, Carol & Lawrence
