Cancer impacts all of us. In my case, I am dedicating this year's ride to my brother Gary who is fighting colon cancer and to my friend Karen Akagi who lost her fight to breast cancer in 2020.
This August I have committed to participate in the Tour de Cure to help BC Cancer Foundation fight cancer. My goal is to ride the 160km challenge in one day.
It will be a tough ride, but it does not compare to the challenge of facing cancer. By doing this small thing, I hope Gary knows we are thinking of him and trying to contribute to his journey and that Karen's family knows we continue to honour her memory.
Funds raised through the Tour de Cure will support life-saving research and enhancements to care at BC Cancer, bringing hope to cancer patients in British Columbia and making an impact around the world.
If you have any room in your donation budget, I would greatly appreciate a small gift towards this worthy cause.
Thank you so much for your support!
