The Ride to Conquer Cancer is a 2 day cycling event from Cloverdale to Hope, journeying over 200 km to raise money to benefit the BC Cancer Foundation.
To participate in this great event, it is a big commitment as each rider has to raise a minimum of $2500 along with the hours of training getting used to being in the saddle! Two of our team members, Adam Crompton and Debra Tarigan, have signed up for this endeavor. Adam is in his second year and Debra participating for the first time this year.
Being a part of this ride has special meaning to both Adam and Debra. Adam is riding for his uncle and aunt whom he lost within a year of each other and for his mom who is a breast cancer survivor. Debra is riding for her best friend who lost her mom to pancreatic cancer and all the others who are fighting their battle each day.
The Ride to Conquer Cancer has raised more than $96 million in the last 10 years. The impact from the dollars raised have been significant and they are changing the outcome for people facing cancer in BC.
