Ride2Survive is the Canadian Cancer Society's biggest independent fundraising event.
Our 16th year of the Ride2Survive was to start a new evolution of the event and especially with the effects of COVID-19 and having to make the decision to cancel the ride for 2020. What should have been our ride in from Hope this year was changed to individual and team (social distancing) challenges.
Personal events under the Ride2survive umbrella are popping up. The Ride2Survive team continues to do our part in fundraising for cancer research in a very unique fundraising model, where no event costs, administration costs, paid staff or a dime for anything comes off the fundraising dollars.
What we do know is that cancer isn't taking a COVID holiday. 225,000 Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer this year.
Research is required and we continue to fund it the same way we always have. In fact, for the last several years we have secured matching grants for your donations to double the impact of the research we fund.
The Ride2Survive decided to invest in the future via research before it was needed. In this time of cancer treatments and surgeries being postponed due to COVID-19, some treatments are able to continue as there are now chemotherapies that can be self-administered at home, that didn't exist 10 years ago.
Please consider making a donation to our team if you are able. Your donation matters.
