This year I will be participating in the “Ride to Conquer Cancer” to raise funds for the BC Cancer Foundation. It is a sponsored bicycle ride from Vancouver to Seattle on June 14 -15, 2014
The numbers of those facing cancer are staggering even for a small community like Cortes Island. We all know people who survived this arduous journey and we can all bring to mind the names of people who fought valiantly but did not conquer this disease. Our family, like many others, is all too aware of this challenge.
Individually and as a community we need to do all we can to contribute to this important cause. All who enter this major fund raising event are asked to raise a minimum of $2,500 by May 30th . To reach this goal I'm looking for support from all those in our community who are in a position to help by sponsoring me.
You can do this on line or by cheque.
