Thank you Rob - Our final R2S 2020 event is complete

Rob-on-the-trail-1

Hi everyone, the ride went well. It was a race but we weren't too caught up in that. In the end though I placed 5th in the 50k men and Sandra 2nd in the ladies. We got to ride some great trails and raise some much needed money I plan on doing the 120k next year. I'll fly the R2S banner again and hopefully we'll be back to normal and I can raise a b...

thumbnail_20200816_121640
A recap of August 2020 - what a year, what a month it's been! While we are all making changes in our lives, and adapting to doing things differently I am happy to say that it was a refreshing change in fundraising energy and efforts on all fronts for me! Don't get me wrong, I love my bike and the team I have gotten to know over the last couple of y...

Just wanted to say I am happy to say I gave this my best shot to raise $3,000 for cancer research with Ride2Survive in the middle of the Covid-19 pandemic. Thank you so much for your donations so far. This is my final plea for donations. I am currently at $2,480 with $520 left to meet my goal of $3,000. If you have been thinking about this now is t...

300km on Foot in 30 Days

480px_Sonya-and-Steve

Sonya and Steve Tom are heading out every day in August to accumulate 300km on foot!!

When: August 2020

Where: Lower Mainland

Here's Sonya's story:

I’ve been involved with R2S and other cancer fundraising activities for a number of years and would like to continue to support the Canadian Cancer Society in what ever small way I can!

I’ve set my goal at $3,000.00 – Myself and long time friend, Steve Tom, will be walking/running/foot powering through the month of August in hopes of walking a combined 600KM (300KM each)!

So that's $10 a kilometer, who doesn't have 10 bucks to donate !! :)

But any amount is greatly appreciated!!

Donations to The Ride 2 Survive go directly to the cause, I’ve covered my own costs of “The Ride” so everything raised is a designated donation to research for the Canadian Cancer Society - kept right here in British Columbia!!

Additionally, The Canadian Cancer Society does not take any administrative costs out of your donation for the Ride2Survive, and R2S has made the decision that all money donated goes to the cause! It is money well spent!

Need I say more? Thanks in advance for your support!!! See you on the road or trail or mountain top !

Cheers to you and yours, stay healthy my friends!

Sonya

I had to abandon my ride yesterday after 162 km due to major safety concerns. It felt like r...

Rob Geiger's Merritt Crown Endurance for Ride2Survive

RobGeiger1
Please read right to the bottom!! May 19th, 1995. For those of you who know me, I don't even need to tell you what happened that day. For those who don't know me so well, it was the day my sisters and I lost our Mom. To put it simply, she was amazing. Kind. Funny. Beautiful. Smart. Loyal. She would literally walk through a wall for her kids, and he...
