In 2011 we lost Kathy Stonehouse - a mother, a wife, a sister, an aunt and a friend.

Team Kathys Riders unofficially started in 2013 when her daughter, Jennifer, joined the Ride to Conquer Cancer. The family supported her through fundraising, training, and at the finish line.

In 2014, a few more of us decided to join Jennifer. Jeff (Kathy's son), Karen (Kathy's sister), and Chrissie (Kathy's niece) signed up together for a 250 km cycling adventure in memory of Kathy.

Each year we continue to raise funds for the BC Cancer Foundation in memory of Kathy and the many others that find themselves and their families facing a diagnosis of cancer.

I am forever grateful to have such an amazing family who inspires me every day to remember what truly matters - the connection we have to each other.

With heartfelt gratitude,
Chrissie & Karen
