I'm cycling to support cancer research, and I need your help!
Hi! On June 11-12, 2011, I'll be participating in a 2-day major cycling event called The Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer benefiting The Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto, one of the top 5 cancer research hospitals in the world.
I'll be cycling over 200 km that weekend, from Toronto to Niagara Falls, with thousands of other riders. All the proceeds will go to The Princess Margaret to support cancer research, treatment, and services.
The Princess Margaret is Canada's leading comprehensive institution devoted to cancer research and care, and the work they're doing is leading-edge. Research at the National Cancer Institute of Canada show 171,000 estimated new cases of cancer in Canada this year and 75,300 estimated deaths from cancer in Canada this year.
That's why I'm riding--to do something BIG about cancer. I hope that you'll share this incredible adventure with me by supporting me in my fund raising efforts. I've agreed to raise at least $2,500, but I'd like to exceed that.
So here's where you come in, because I need your help to reach my goal. Could you please consider making a donation?
