On August 26th and 27th Adam and I once again had the pleasure of participating in the annual Ride To Conquer Cancer. Over two days we rode from Vancouver to Seattle covering 250km over varied terrain and some surprises. We had great weather this year with some good heat and thoroughly enjoyed the Red Truck beer at camp in Mt. Vernon after conquering the Chuckanut Highway out of Bellingham. Camp has some excellent, nutritious food and they managed to link up to the McGregor/Mayweather match for some great entertainment. We were in the blue tent! Day 2 is always the hardest with the endless number of hills that need to be climbed as we approached Seattle. They just keep coming and coming . . . but alas another free cold beer at the finish
Thanks to all of you that supported our fundraising efforts over the past 12 months. You donated at our client parties, movie mornings, silent auctions, and directly online. Along with 2000 other riders, we helped raise $8.3 million this year towards cancer research and treatment options at the BC Cancer Foundation. Over the past nine years the Ride To Conquer Cancer has helped raise $85.3 million for the BC Cancer Foundation. Team Pospischil Realty, through your generous support, has proudly contributed over $320,000 to this total over the past 8 years.
As a cancer survivor myself I know the challenges cancer patients and their families face in their journey through diagnoses, treatments, and the roller coaster of emotions towards the finish line. Our annual ride reminds me personally of my past challenges and enables me, and those that joined us through their support, to help push the boundaries of research and treatments to help those on the journey today, and in the future. And perhaps one day we can celebrate a victory in a cure to cancer.
We have signed up for the 2018 Ride To Conquer Cancer which is affectionately being called “The Ride for Hope” as next year’s ride will be from Vancouver to Hope! Should be fun. We have just setup our donations page and welcome any online donations through the new golden link on our home page at www.pospischilrealty.com
