The Ride to Conquer Cancer 2010 is shaping up to be an exciting one. This 260-km bicycle ride benefits The Campbell Family Institute at Princess Margaret Hospital, one of the world’s leading cancer institutes. Taking place over two days, June 12-13, thousands of cyclists, including Neal Romanchych, 411 Canada Senior VP of sales, will raise money for cancer treatment, research and services at Princess Margaret Hospital. Neal Romanchych of 411 Canada hopes to raise $3200 which would go directly to Princess Margaret to aid in this awesome purpose, conquering cancer.
Since its inaugural run, the Ride to Conquer Cancer has become Canada’s most victorious and successful cycling event. In just two years over $28.5 million dollars has been raised by cyclists from outside countries, and Canadian states and provinces. There are several options for a cyclist regarding his or her route. The most popular, K200 Double-Century, is an awe-inspiring, scenic adventure from Toronto to Niagara falls. The M200 Classic Double-Century is a new route for those looking for a challenge; it will share the K200′s starting and finishing points, but is an extended route between the two. Lastly, if someone is unable to ride during this particular weekend, but would love to raise money, the Virtual Rider Program is a way to take part.
At Princess Margaret, it’s believed that cancer can be beaten with a great team of motivated people executing hopeful programs and using some of the most advanced technology. A team of top scientists and doctors are congregated at Princess Margaret and are searching for new discoveries hoping to aid in more positive outcomes for patients, not only locally, but all over the world. Right now, 40 percent of people will hear the words, “you have cancer,” in their lifetime. By supporting The Ride to Conquer Cancer, you can help make a difference for those who do.
