Each year here in Toronto we have the Ride to Conquer Cancer … a two day bicycle ride from Toronto to Niagara Falls where riders raise donations for cancer fighting. The funds raised go to the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation, and the ride has raised $28.5 million dollars over the course of the last two years alone … an amazing feat. It had participants from 10 provinces, 14 states, and 4 countries.
This year TeamCain and our staff are providing financial support for Team David … a group comprised of our founder David Cain, his wife Janis, a long time friend Peter Weiler and his daughter Marissa. They are riding with a bit more “jump” this year for personal reasons … and we are honoured to be able to support them for the same reasons. If you would also like to provide support, you can go to their team page here and make a donation yourself.
Cancer affects so many people .. 2 in 5 people will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. My family has been touched by it, friends of ours have been touched by it. A very good friend of TeamCain, David Cain, recently battled the dreaded disease and has come through clean with the incredible help from the Princess Margaret Hospital here in Toronto. I am sure you also have your own stories and reasons to help … so reach out and help!
