Please support me in the Tour de Cure!
This August I will be embarking on a cycling challenge. I have committed to participate in the Tour de Cure presented by Wheaton Precious Metals to help BC Cancer Foundation break down cancer.
It will be hard and it will be long, but it does not compare to the challenge of facing cancer. Many of us have friends & family who are currently battling cancer. My reason is still very raw and felt deep in my heart. My drive to do this is in memory of my dear friend Vince-who was the love of my close friend Susy. Vince left us July 2 2021 at the age of 56 after a short hard battle. He was a loving considerate and thoughtful man. He was a father to 2 beautiful children who have the strength of him in their souls. The amount of people at his service showed how many lives he touched. My husband & I miss him. Susy misses him in every essence of a wife to her husband. My participation in this ride and with this team remains in his honour and memory. He gives me strength.
As a beginner cyclist I am relying on the many of my team to teach-mentor-support me on this journey. When I first joined this amazing team my goal was 50km in one day. With the encouragement of my team I have accomplished this goal. Tour de Cure 2021 was an amazing experience in Prince George. Vancouver here we come!
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.
Please consider supporting me by making a gift today. Your donation will help me achieve my fundraising goal AND motivate me in this challenge!
Thank you so much for your support!
