Get Inspired to Ride
Some ride to remember, some ride to support, and some ride for themselves. Read more about a few of the inspirational riders who are taking part in The Ride to Conquer Cancer this year.
A Truly Noble Cause
Life is full of surprises. Nobody knows this better than cancer survivor Matt Fowler. See his inspiring story.
Tim's Spirit is Team Spirit
Tim Hockey and his Les Domestiques teammates see themselves as riders who are "servants" to the greater good.
Paul is Sharing the Power of Human Connection
Paul’s experience with cancer included challenges but his interactions with everyone from volunteers to nurses to doctors at The Princess Margaret reinforced how human connections can impact a person’s life. He’s sharing his story now to inspire others and, as Vice President of The Carpenters Union, putting incredible support behind The Ride as a sponsor.
Jennifer Wants to Make a Difference
Less than a month after finishing her chemotherapy treatment, Jennifer rode 50 kilometres in The Ride to Conquer Cancer as part of Team BMO.
Aubrie is Surviving and Thriving
Aubrie’s diagnosis of breast cancer at 36 years old was completely unexpected. As a top athlete who loves to ride, she got involved with Ride to Conquer Cancer after some encouragement from a friend.
Maurice is Riding During his Cancer Journey
At 33 years old, an ex-personal trainer and no family history of cancer, Maurice’s diagnosis of Hodgkin’s Lymphoma was a complete shock. While he’s not yet cancer-free, Maurice is currently responding well to one of the clinical trials at The Princess Margaret.
Marvin Rides in Memory of Mom
One of Celia Esquivel’s biggest supporters was her son, Marvin. Sadly, Celia, a patient at The Princess Margaret, passed away from ovarian cancer in February of this year. Marvin will be honouring her legacy by once again participating in The Ride and being an inspiration to others.
Karen is a Groundbreaker
In 2019, Karen, a survivor of Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, made Ride history with her fundraising goal of $500,000 – and Team Karen ended up raising an incredible $590,000.
