The 12th annual Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer is going virtual to raise vital funds benefiting the Alberta Cancer Foundation.
The 2020 Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer is going to look a little different this year.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the two-day, 200km inspirational event that takes place through southern Alberta is postponed until 2021. But cancer doesn’t stop for a pandemic and every day, 53 Albertans continue to hear the words, “you have cancer.”
The Alberta Cancer Foundation states this year’s fundraiser will be virtual, with a special virtual rally taking place Aug. 29. This unique event gives participants the opportunity to safely take part in the ride, anytime this summer from anywhere across the province while following all Alberta Health guidelines.
If cycling isn’t a passion, participants can also walk, run, hike, or complete an activity of their choosing. There’s no registration fee and no minimum kilometres or fundraising amount required. Participants have the opportunity to ride their way and continue raising critical funds that will make a difference for Albertans facing cancer.
The Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer is Canada’s largest peer-to-peer fundraising event and since 2009, the Alberta Ride has raised more than $80 million dollars to support locally-based cancer research, treatment and care.
Funds raised from this year’s event will continue to be put towards groundbreaking research, clinical trials and enhanced patient care programs that make life better for patients across the province. In the face of these unprecedented times we invite participants to join this exciting initiative, and help create more moments for Albertans facing cancer.
