The Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer event held on June 16-17 raised $11.2 million as 3,011 riders on bicycles rode from Vancouver to Seattle participating in the 4th annual Ride in British Columbia. This turned out to be the largest cyclling fundraiser in BC history, setting fundraising and participation records for the BC Cancer Foundation. Funds raised support breakthrough research and enhancements to patient care at the BC Cancer Agency. To think that my sister Marilyn and I were part of this amazing event! We each rode a total of 240 km in two days from Cloverdale (a Vancouver suburb) to Bothell, Washington (a Seattle subburb).

We would like to sincerely thank everyone again who supported our Ride to Conquer Cancer. With your donations we were able to proudly donate a total of $8689 to the BC Cancer Foundation. This was truly a “healing” ride for both of us and we thank you again.
