300km on Foot in 30 Days

Sonya_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

Most of you know that I...

Jacob
Jacob completed his 500km ride2survive this weekend. As life goes (and cancer treatments), the best laid plans are often scoffed at and pushed aside.Here's Jacob's update from Friday: "We arrived in Victoria last night but not the way it was supposed to be. I had to abandon my ride yesterday after 162 km due to major safety concerns. It felt like r...

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...

Jacob's R2S Vancouver Island Ride

Jacob's R2S Vancouver Island Ride

Watch here for an almost live feed of where Jacob is on July 2nd and 3rd:

 

Covid 19 has cancelled a lot of cycling events including the Ride2Survive this year. The R2S is the largest independent Cancer fundraising event.

The Covid 219 hasn't stopped the research to beat Cancer so donations must go on.

I will do my part of cycling the length of Vancouver Island from Port Hardy to Victoria (500km) in 2 days to raise well needed money for Cancer Research, 100 % of every dollar you donate goes directly to Cancer Research here in BC there is no admin or overhead costs.

Your support will be greatly appreciated, Cancer is still alive and by supporting me with a gracious donation you will help to safe lives.

Crazy Hikers taking on 100km in One Day

Crazy Hikers taking on 100km in One Day

Team Crazy Hikers and friends are walking 100km in one day to support the Canadian Cancer Society.

We are known as the Crazy Hikers and true to the name we are doing a crazy event in support of Ride2Survive who started that crazy event 16 years ago!

The event will be held on Saturday June 27 and will begin at midnight and hoping to finish at 7:00pm. It will be a long and hard day but no where close to emotional and physical pain a cancer patient goes through every day. 

In last year 16 years R2S has raised well over 9 million by cycling from Kelowna to Delta however this year due to Covid-19 the ride has been cancelled. Of course as we all know Cancer did not take a break during this Pandemic and continues to effects our friends and families.

Toilet Paper Paul’s Climb with a Rhyme

Toilet Paper Paul’s Climb with a Rhyme

Toilet Paper Paul’s Climb with a Rhyme

Wherein (as Evil Knievel said) I will attempt to summit not 1, not 2, but 3 gigantic rock formations known locally as the North Shore mountains using dual modalities (that’s hipster for 2 different bikes) switching from road to mountain and road again for Seymour, Grouse, and Cypress respectively all while reciting rhythmic utterances of great cultural significance.

Aware as I am that many have suffered economic loss this year it may seem like poor timing to ask you to support cancer research. I respect that and would like to let you know how much your past support means. If; however, you are in a position to help, please click on the link below to make a contribution:

When: Sept 12 2020 (weather permitting)

Where:  North Shore Mountains
