The day before my run

Destanne2020-1
It's the day before my 20 km Silver Star Mountain Summit Challenge that I will be completing with my two dear friends, Sarah and Bob. I'm periodically gazing out the window taking in the expansive view of the Monashee mountains from one of the Peaks townhomes while resting my legs, contemplating and sharing more of my story. 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...

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...

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

R2S Dirty 200

R2S Dirty 200

COVID 19 has meant the Cancellation of large group gatherings for the foreseeable future.  As Cyclist we've been inconvenienced but for registered charities the damage is catastrophic.  Did you know that Ride2Survive is the largest independent cancer fundraising event in the country?  This year that means millions of dollars of desperately needed funding will not get raised unless we do something.  

As avid cyclists, and concerned citizens,  we are getting together "vitually"  help out.  Similar to the historic Ride2Suvive which was a one day 400km road ride from Kelowna to Delta we are going to complete a one day 200km Dirt only ride.  The 2020 R2SDirty200.  Trust me when I say that 200kms on dirt by yourself is going to be every bit as demanding as 400km of pavement riden as a supported group.  Every rider who participate will be making a personal sacrifice worthy of your support!

Something else you may not know is that the Ride2Survive and R2S Dirty200 are 100% efficient for you the donar.   What that means is that 100% of every dollar you donate goes directly to Cancer research here in British Columbia.  Nothing is taken off your donation for admin or overhead.

EVENT DETAILS:

  • Each rider will complete 200km's of dirt and single track riding on their own and send in the GPS tracks to verify their completion.
  • Each rider has until the end of July to complete their event but they must start and finish their event within a single 24hour period.
  • All of the riders who take part will ride at a time of their own choosing but together we will pool our fund raising efforts for cancer research.  This is something we can all get behind.
  • Most riders will be riding between 12 - 18 hours to get this done...it's not suppose to be easy.  In fact, it's suppose to mimic just ONE day in the life of a person who is battling cancer.  
  • Check back from time to time and we will update our fund raising goals and our list of registered riders here on this page.
  • COVID-19 will eventually pass into the history books but Cancer waits for no one.  
  • With Covid we must helpless wait it out but this is something we can take control of and make a difference in peoples lives.
  • The first 10 riders you support have already received a $50 dollar donation.
  • The rider who raises the most money will have another $500 donated to the cause.

Thank you in advance for your generous support.  Regardless of the rider you are supporting we are all in this together.

Destanne's Silver Star summit run to help combat Cancer

Destanne's Silver Star summit run to help combat Cancer

I am happy to support the Canadian Cancer Society and fundraise by participating in a 20 km Silver Star Mountain Summit Run. Starting at BX Elementary School, in Vernon B.C. I'll be running up Silver Star Mountain Road to The Pinnacles Suites and Townhomes, then trail running the last 1.5 km to the top of Silver Star Mountain on July 6, my 60th Birthday.

My mom passed away from lung cancer fifteen years ago. And like many others, we've had other family members and friends survive having cancer and those who have left us because of it. I'll be running in memory of my dear, loving mother.

When: July 6 2020

Where: Vernon to Silver Star Summit

3 Riders - 3 Days - 300KM for Cancer Research!

Help me help those on a cancer journey as I ride with my two sidekicks (Husband Ryan and friend Steve) to support the Canadian Cancer Society and Cancer Research!

Ride2Survive was canceled this year due to COVID-19 but COVID did not make cancer go away, it has lead to further issues for those facing cancer right now who still need my help. I'm stepping up and bringing my two riding partners with me.

July 17th - 19th we wil be riding in a socialy distant way around the lower mainland to help raise funds and awarenss for cancer reserach through Ride2Survive. Any and all support is welcome for those who can. Even just your good vibes are appreciated. 

We ride because all 3 of us have lost people we love to cancer. We are also all parents and we want to help shape a future where no one fears cancer. 

100% of all dollars raised through Ride2Survive go directly to the Canadian Cancer society to fund life saving research and support programs.
