Dear Family and Friends,
Silkie and I have decided to raise funds for a cause that is near and dear to us.
I recently joined the Cancervive Cycle Tour to raise funds for people living with cancer through Wellspring Calgary. I invite you to help me reach my fundraising goal as I participate in a challenging 4-day, 400+ km charity bike ride through the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia at the end of September.
I am riding to suppost those living with cancer and their caregivers, this is a long term investment in the health of our community.
Did you know 51 people a day are diagnosed with cancer in Alberta? In Calgary alone, 5 people a day may seek a place of support during their cancer experience. There are now 3 centers including Calgary, WSEdmonton and Randy O’Dellthe centre in western Canada that addresse the non-medical needs and changes that a cancer diagnosis can bring. Over 500 people accessed Wellspring services for the first time last year! A donation of only $150 will provide free resources and programs for one member for an entire month, support that can greatly help to increase their quality of life.
Every dollar makes a difference in the lives of someone living with cancer. Please consider supporting me in my efforts to have a positive impact on someone's life.
I look forward to sharing stories and photos of my incredible ride with you.
