Together, we went BIGGER!

Ride for Cancer powered by BMO Bank of Montreal is Atlantic Canada's largest one-day fundraising cycling event and hosted in partnership by the QEII Foundation and The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada.

On Saturday, September 30, a community of 475 riders, 200 volunteers, sponsors, event organizers and supporters came together to do something BIGGER for cancer care in our region.

A total of $600,622 net was raised – and that number continues to grow.

Since the event began three years ago, Ride for Cancer powered by BMO Bank of Montreal has raised more than $1-million.

On event day, riders embarked on an epic journey spanning 130 kilometres from Mahone Bay to Halifax – all in support of Atlantic Canadians battling cancer. Presenting sponsor of Ride for Cancer for the third year in a row, BMO Bank of Montreal has played an integral role in the success of the annual cycling event.

Funds raised from the 2017 Ride for Cancer event will purchase advanced cancer therapy preparation equipment for the QEII Health Sciences Centre, support local blood cancer research, and fund patient and family support programs through The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada.
