The Ride to Conquer Cancer® Presented by Silver Wheaton benefiting BC Cancer Foundation is a unique, two-day cycling event to take place on June 14 and 15, 2014. During this bold cycling journey, participants will ride for two days through the scenic Pacific Northwest! The Ride’s vision is clear – a world free from cancer.
Think of it as a history-making opportunity for you to do something big about cancer, something epic. Riding through the scenic Pacific Northwest in two days on June 14 and 15, 2014. Sure, it sounds like a lot – and it’s meant to be. The conquest of cancer is a monumental task and won’t be easy. But make no mistake, this event isn’t just for athletes or cycling enthusiasts. The Ride to Conquer Cancer is for anyone who wants to challenge themselves for a great cause – even people who haven’t ridden since they were 12. All you need is motivation, a bike and a helmet. The rest is history. Be part of it.
Right now, two in five people will hear the words: “You have cancer” in their lifetime. The money you raise for The Ride to Conquer Cancer (RTCC) will benefit BC Cancer Foundation and support leading clinicians, scientists and researchers whose search for new discoveries and improved patient outcomes will have a real impact in our communities throughout the province, across Canada and around the world. In other words, your participation will accelerate the conquest of cancer.
You don’t have to be rich to participate in The Ride to Conquer Cancer. And you don’t have to be an athlete, either. Whether you’re 25 or 75, a fitness freak or a couch potato, a banker or a barista, you can absolutely do this. With the support of RTCC, you will not only raise an incredible amount of money for cancer research, but also be completely ready to cycle the most meaningful ride of your life.
You’ll proudly follow The Ride route out of metropolitan Vancouver as the urban landscape gradually gives way to broad, lush valleys and rolling farmlands.
Day One culminates in a special afternoon and evening of entertainment and socializing with an overnight camp under the starry sky.
Day Two will lead you further through the inspiring landscape, providing breathtaking views of distant mountains enveloped in coniferous forest. As you continue to meander along scenic country roads, the distant skyline will beckon you towards the Finish Line—a high energy, celebration of your epic journey and your amazing impact in the quest to conquer cancer.
Registration for The Ride is open! Register as an individual or create/join a team.
When you form a team, you create a group of people that can train together and raise money together. It is a great way to keep your motivation up and your fundraising on track. You can hold each other accountable and keep each other company along the way. Having others to lean on, and having others count on you, will push you to get up a little earlier in the morning, or head out in the cold or heat to ride those extra kilometres. Plus, it makes The Ride that much more fun to be doing it with a group of friends, as committed to conquering cancer as you are.
