I am participating in the 2021 RIDE INSIDE in support of the CancerCare Manitoba....but I will be climbing instead of riding.
I will be climbing the distance of a full Mount Everest ascent, 58,070 feet on Jacobs Ladder. I am giving myself a 24 hour time line to complete the ascent at Richard Burr Fitness on Nov 19th - Nov 20th.
The last time I did this was February 2019 and I am ready to face this task once again.
I am looking for team members that are willing to join me and if not, please consider supporting my effort with a donation. This "party with a purpose" promises to be a lot of fun and at the same time will raise critical funds for young people with the hardest to treat cancers.
Over the last five decades, there has been a dramatic improvement in treatments and outcomes for many pediatric and young adult cancers. Thanks to the passionate investment of donors, today four out of five of these young patients will be cured.
However, 20 percent of patients whose cancers have spread, returned, or proven resistant to treatment still have a challenge to face. PROFYLE, short for PRecision Oncology For Young peopLE, is dedicated to helping find cures for the rarest and hardest to treat cancers young people are facing. This initiative gives children, adolescents and young adults who are out of conventional treatment options another chance to beat their cancer. By supporting me with a donation, you are helping to support CancerCare Manitoba in its work to change lives and change the course of cancer in our province.
Every donation - no matter how big or small - is critical as we work together to stay ahead of this disease.
Thank you for your consideration.
