Mike’s Ride to Conquer Cancer

Cancer has touched our family's lives, taking some people very dear to us.  So this morning it was with a mix of pride and sorrow that we watched our seventeen year old son Mike embark on the 2011 Ontario Ride to Conquer Cancer.  He and 4600 other riders left from the CNE grounds at 8:30AM.  This year, the participants have raised a record $17.5M for The Campbell Family Institute at The Princess Margaret Hospital, one of the top five cancer research centres in the world.  To support Mike’s 200km ride, please follow this link.

Three and a half hours after the start, I spotted Mike among the pack as he crossed Burlington on Side Road 1.
