My Message

Why am I riding from Coast to Coast? At any given time, cancer holds 10,000 Canadian children in its grip. It robs them, and their families, of the laughter and joy that should be part of every childhood. Riding in the Sears National Kids Cancer Ride will channel my physical, mental and emotional energy into something much greater – helping brave children return to life as regular kids again. I'll share the road with a team of cyclists, united in our commitment to the childhood cancer community. Your support is welcome and needed. Please join me in this powerful and inspiring experience by helping to fund important childhood cancer charities across Canada.

About Childhood Cancer: The causes of childhood cancers are, in most cases, unknown. The types of cancers that occur in children vary greatly from those seen in adults. They tend to occur in different parts of the body, and they respond differently to treatment. Leukemias, brain and other nervous system tumours, lymphomas (lymph node cancers), bone cancers, soft tissue sarcomas, and adrenal gland cancers are the most common cancers of children. In the early 1950s, less than 10 percent of childhood cancer patients could be cured. Today, more than 80 percent of children diagnosed with cancer become long-term survivors and the majority of them are considered cured. However, 60% of survivors have long lasting impacts due to the impact of treatments or their cancer. The Sears National Kids Cancer Ride will fund research and other programs that improve the lives of children living with cancer.

Hi Rich, I wish you the very best on your ride. Today is my mom's birthday and I lost her to the Big C 3 years ago. I thought of making this small contribution in her memory. I will be sure to be virtually cheering you on your ride across the country. Cheers, Ash

After reading this while searching for a Citrix article I was touched by your story and goals to help childhood cancer charities. Unfortunately i understand the seriousness of this disease as I lost my 9 yr. old son to cancer 7 years ago. I commend you and your team for taking this ride to help others in need. Safe travels. I will share this with my friends and will be making a donation to the fund.
