Total dollars raised for cancer research since 2009 $2,951,878 (so far)

Riders for Ryders, what’s next?

Riders for Ryders 2009 – 2013 almost $1.5 million dollars raised.

But what’s next?

Since 2009 Riders for Ryders has raised over 1.4 million dollars for cancer research through the amazing event the Ride to Conquer Cancer  and we are always looking for dedicated and committed new team members to join us on this journey.

Taking this commitment is not to be taken lightly. If you join you are committing and making a promise that you will do everything in your power to raise at least $2500 the minimum and be at the start line June 14th 2014.

This team was originally formed to honor Ryder Evans-Brockett who died because of brain cancer in 2009 when he was just 5 and then to incorporate Ryder James Hari Kartar Khalsa Naismith who died because of this disease in 2010.

Having someone die to any disease is a devastating ordeal, and when that loved one is a child of your own, it’s even worse. Losing a child is not something you get over or heal from. It is with you for the rest of your life. What you do have to do is figure out how to deal with the knowledge that you have, and what to do with it.

So when people ask me why we ride we tell them simply, so we don’t have to ride in the future. So that with the money we raise by riding we can research and discover the cure for this terrible disease. So that people don’t have to go through devastating journeys, so children like the two Ryders do not have to suffer as a result of this disease.

So with that being said let make a pact together to beat this disease so that one day when this disease is mentioned it will be as a thing of the past and not the present.

So how do we do that?

The past 5 years have been an amazing success with the team raising just over 1.4 million dollars over the BC and ON rides. The team has grown in BC from 13 team in 2009 to 218 team members in 2013 raising $495,953 and in the first year in Toronto 24 team members raising over $79,000.

And we have big goals for BC, 333 team members raising over 1 million dollars in 1 year and in ON 66 team members raising $233,000. This is where you come in to play. There are a couple of ways to make this happen.

I believe that with your help in raising money and with enough people we can achieve our goal. I believe it with every fiber of my being. I believe we will find a cure.

So today I ask two things.

1. For those of you in the areas of BC and ON please join team ‘Riders for Ryders’ and commit to raise a minimum of $2500 no matter what. We have riders of all abilities from complete beginner to experts to help you reach your goals. We have people in all locations you can team up with to help. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to call Jimi on 604 551 7959 or click register at the top of this page and select ‘join a team’ and I look forward to welcoming you to our team.

If you can’t commit to that or if you’re not in the area then please,

2. Make a donation of $100 to help Jimi and Riders for Ryders reach our goal of 1 million dollars
