Enbridge Ride a Success

Posted on: June 30th, 2011 by zach

The Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer, two-day cycling event took place on June 18-19, 2011 and was a great success.   I want to immediately thank all those who sponsored my ride and I am pleased to say that our team, the Titans raised over $75,000.   Collectively, all the participants raised over $11.1 million for the BC Cancer Foundation. Thanks to your outstanding support, we have surpassed our hugely successful 2010 Ride and will be able to substantially increase funding for breakthrough research at the BC Cancer Agency, throughout British Columbia.

 

The Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer is a powerful movement of hope, healing, celebration and optimism where thousands of cyclists join together to raise funds and awareness in order to conquer cancer.

It is a unique fundraising event benefiting the BC Cancer Foundation, a B.C.-based charity that raises funds for the BC Cancer Agency – a province-wide, population-based cancer control organization. The funds raised stay in B.C. and benefit cancer patients across all of British Columbia.

Ride to Conquer Cancer rolls along into Washington State

More than $16 million raised for cancer research through this event

SEATTLE (NEWS1130) – The Ride to Conquer Cancer continues to roll along this weekend.  Riders took off from Vancouver yesterday and are expected to reach Seattle by this evening.

Doug Nelson is taking part and took a break from the route to call News1130 from Washington State.

He says that every one of the over 2, 200 cyclists have been somehow affected by cancer and the ride gives them a great chance to help find a cure.  “It’s been amazing to see the number of people and the number of personal stories of how cancer has touched people’s lives and how people are taking control of that by doing this ride this weekend.”

This is the second year the ride has been held on the West Coast.  Overall through this event $16 million has been raised for cancer research.
