Hey there, I am Mike and I wil be participating in Cops for Cancer to support the mission of the Canadian Cancer Society.
This is my second tour and I am looking forward to riding and raising money for the kids. My first exposure to cancer was when my grandfather was diagnosed with Leukemia in 2006. Despite his poor prognosis I watched him defy the odds and battle the disease until 2010 when it ultimately took his life.
The money raised from this event helps fund leading-edge cancer research that is improving cancer treatments, preventing cancer and saving lives; provide reliable and up-to-date information on cancer, risk reduction and treatment; offer vital community-based support services for people living with cancer and their families; and advocate for healthy public policies.
I know money is still tight for many families as we navigate the Covid-19 pandemic. If you are able to please pledge me and help me reach my fundraising goal! Every pledge takes us one step further in the fight against cancer. Online pledging is secure and it saves the Canadian Cancer Society money by reducing administrative costs. You also get a tax receipt from the cancer society :)
Thanks for your support and see you on the road and trails
