The BC ride to Conquer Cancer is a 200km 2 day ride through the Pacific Northwest to raise money and awareness of Cancer Research. I entered into the 2011 ride to help raise funds and as a motivator to improve my own health and well being.
On December 3rd this year I lost my Mother-in-Law to liver cancer. It was a shock to see how quickly it overtook her and to learn how little could be done to help her so I wanted to do something to help the people researching treatments and cures. Many people are helped by these efforts already but there is so much more work to be done.
This page will update my training and fund raising efforts in the new year. I hope it will serve as inspiration for others wishing to contribute to an event like this or to just do something for themselves and their own health.
