Riding for those who can't to Conquer Cancer in Our Lifetime! My Cycling Motto: Pain is temporary...Quitting is forever!
You’re probably wondering “What’s a Conquer Cancer page doing on a Specialty Food & Beverage importer & distributor’s website?”
Well if you knew me you would know about my passion for cycling and more importantly my passion to “Conquer Cancer in Our Lifetime”. Since 2009 I have been a participant in the Ride and 2018 marked my 10th straight year of participating in a Ride to Conquer Cancer event.
And what a year it was! I participated in not one but TWO Ride to Conquer Cancer events. Over the weekends of June 9th & 10th and July 7th & 8th I cycled 243 km in Ontario in support of the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre and 227 km in Quebec in support of the Segal Cancer Centre, respectively.
Together with thousands of other riders we managed to raise $18.3 Million for the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre and $4.8 million for the Segal Cancer Centre. With the support of my very generous donors I managed to raise $6,431 for these two events bringing my 10 year Ride to Conquer Cancer fundraising total to $69,881!
The funds raised go towards cancer research because accelerating any progress against cancer requires continued investments in research. It’s through continued research that new discoveries in the lab are regularly being translated into new treatments for patients that will prolong and save their lives!
On June 8th and 9th, 2019 I’ll be participating in my 13th Ride and by donating and being part of my team you will illustrate our shared understanding that this disease has or will touch us all in our lifetimes and, as such, it must be beaten!
Together we have and will continue to make an epic impact in the battle to Conquer Cancer in Our Lifetime!
Please support my 13th Ride to Conquer Cancer:
Michael Georgopoulos, President & 11 Year Rider!
