The Ride to Conquer Cancer – August 25-26, 2019

For the last decade, The Ride to Conquer Cancer has been a rallying cry for those who know that cancer is no match against our conviction to conquer it. This rallying cry—Be The Ride—encompasses all that it means to take on this cycling journey and fundraising crusade. The courage, boldness, pride, determination and generosity of our Ridership have helped to raise millions in support of BC Cancer Foundation.

Our partner, Rory Morgan, has accepted the challenge to ride 200 kilometer journey to support others in their battle with cancer. To read more about his fundraising crusade, click here.
