Three R2S Events THIS WEEKEND

The train is leaving!
Our Rob Trainor aka the train embarks on leg three of his quest to raise $100,000 on August 20. Think about this:
5,400 kilometers
75,000+ meters elevation
Gravel ride down the great divide all the way to Mexico!
You can follow Rob's adventure at www.ride4life.ca

Jacob climbs without a ladder!
Jacob Koomen is once again travelling the length of Vancouver Island, climbing, descending and pacing his way to Victoria with the support of his lovely wife Jannie. Watch for their updates on facebook. Jacob rides on August 20 & 21.

Put your hands up in the air!
Along with a porta potty, sky reach, Amarjit and 2 more volunteers from Hand on Back Society. Great supporters of the R2S cause, this trio will spend 50 hours aloft without any of the niceties we will have at ground level, all to support cancer research.
Watch for them at Chalo supermarket on Scott Road in Surrey August 19-21.

Surinder and Ashok's 1100km UNsupported Ride!

How does Rob fund all these cycling adventures? Is is funded personally or are the costs and his salary/ cost of living come from the fund raising? How does he pay his mortgage?

Hi Bruce, thank you for asking these questions as this is exactly one of the ways in which the Ride2Survive differs from so many events. No donation dollars pay for any of Ride2Survive events in any way. Participants like Rob, pay their own way for any costs incurred and the donations go directly to the Canadian Cancer Society where they are held until we designate them to specific research projects. Neither Rob nor anyone else in the Ride2Survive can get at that money in any way.

As to Rob and why he chooses to spend his holidays doing these crazy things... well that's on him but we thank him for the donations he gets as all of those donations will go to specific research projects.

Oh, and one other little bonus is that we quite often get matching grants for our donations so there is a possibility that Rob's funds will be doubled when they get to the research project.

I'd be happy to chat with you about it anytime as this is one of my passions... where the money goes!

email me or call me any time.
