Ride to conquer cancer – thanks!

So we made it!

Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th saw us cycling our way through the lower mainland and into Washington state en route to Seattle as part of the BC Cancer Association 2010 Ride to Conquer Cancer.

Because of the support of friends, family and clients West 4th Physio was able to contribute over $8000 to the grand total of 9.2 million which will go towards research and equipment needed in the foundation’s work. A big thankyou to all of you who supported us.

This was a well organised event that was both hard and fun to be a part of. A 7:00am start on the first day of 130km saw us at Mt Vernon for around 2:00pm for a hot shower, a good meal and a nights sleep in the tent city set up by an army of willing volunteers. Next day was another 120km in the rain, rain, rain. Slightly less pleasant but a tremendous spirit all round.

Special thanks to my team mates Jen Macpherson, Lauren Watson and Mike Kane for their good humour and willing participation. Hopefully we will be able to do it all again in 2011.

    Terrific work! This is the type of information that should be shared around the web. Shame on the search engines for not positioning this post higher!
