The Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer® is a 2-day cycling event taking place from July 9-10, 2011. All proceeds from the ride will help fund cancer research and care at the Segal Cancer Centre at the Jewish General Hospital and throughout Quebec.
Our very own Jim Lawson at the Quebec Sales Office will be participating in this epic journey in hopes of raising funds in memory of his father.
A MESSAGE FROM JIM:
"I am doing a 2 day ride from Montreal to Quebec City, via the Quebec country side. I will ride approximate 130km per day. I decided to start training for this last fall, as you know I'm a bit of a spinning nut and wanted to take my love for riding on the road.
I purchased a road bike and began to train. I loved it, and decided that I would train for this incredible ride to raise money for cancer. I have several friends who have done this ride, both here in Quebec and Ontario.
I will ride in memory of my Father, who lost his battle with cancer in 1990. Donations can be made online at the following website: www.conquercancer.ca/site/TR"
SUPPORT A GREAT CAUSE
Although Jim has reached his goal of $3,000, donations are still appreciated as they will help support developments in new cancer research and treatment technologies.
