Join our crusade against cancer

On September 29, 2018!

Ride for Cancer powered by BMO Bank of Montreal – hosted in partnership with the QEII Foundation and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada – is Atlantic Canada’s largest cycling fundraising event that raises funds to improve cancer care in our region.

In just three years, Ride for Cancer has seen monumental growth and has created a community of champions – leaders in our region who are dedicated to making an impact.

Our fight isn’t over – year four and beyond
One in two Canadians will face a cancer diagnosis in their lifetime.

On September 29, our Ride community will once again rise to the challenge to fund tomorrow’s cures here at home, build the most innovative cancer program in our country and support patients and their families through the toughest moments of their lives.

New routes, new distances, new experiences
Ride for Cancer is dedicated to improving cancer care and creating an event that delivers a remarkable experience that suits individual rider needs, keeps inspiration high and momentum growing. We are continuing to enhance our popular, existing route options – 25, 50, 100 kilometres via trail or 100 and130 kilometres on the road, as well as introducing new distance options and participant experiences:
• 75 kilometres via trail;
• 160 kilometre VIP road experience – a true Century ride for our elite cyclists; and
• youth and families are now invited to ride the 25 kilometre route.

It takes a community to win this fight
Ride for Cancer is about making an immediate impact on those facing a cancer battle and transforming care in our region to impact the future. Since 2015, our community has seen 995 participants and has raised $1.1 million net for cancer care in Atlantic Canada.

And in 2018 – WE’RE NOT STOPPING.
