Sears to organise 'National Kids Cancer Ride'

The Sears National Kids Cancer Ride Begins June 2, 2008 in Vancouver and ends 19 days later in Halifax

Imagine riding your bike between 4 to 8 hours non-stop every day for 6 months. A daunting task, you might think, but not for the 50 cyclists training for the Sears National Kids Cancer Ride. On June 2, 2008 a peloton of 50 cyclists will take to the highways of Canada, embarking on a 7,600 km cycling adventure that will take them from Vancouver to Halifax in 19 days.

This challenge - one of the largest fundraising events on behalf of childhood cancer in the world - is no small feat, both for the national riders and the charities that will benefit from the funds raised from this event.

This spring, Coast to Coast Against Cancer Foundation and retail giant Sears Canada will raise awareness and approximately $1.5 million for children living with and beyond cancer as they cycle across Canada.

Along the route, national riders will be joined by supporters and hundreds of other cyclists who have registered for shorter 25 and 100+ km community rides as they stop at Sears locations and pediatric oncology centres. Both national riders and community riders will sign a giant card, designed by a child, as a symbol of love and hope for all children battling cancer.

"On behalf of all doctors and health care professionals working in the field of childhood cancer care in BC, I give my full support to this tremendous initiative and applaud all those who contribute by riding, fundraising and volunteering and especially, donating, to improve the quality of life for our children with cancer," said Dr. Paul Rogers, Medical Director & Division Head, Paediatric Oncology / Haematology / BMT at BC Children's Hospital.

"As someone who, on a daily basis, sees the devastating effects this disease can have on both the kids who suffer from it and their families, I see the impact the funds from this event will have on the frontlines of this battle," added Dr. Rogers.

Childhood cancer is the number one disease-related cause of death among children in BC. Approximately 150 children under 18 are newly diagnosed with cancer each year and 20% of those will succumb to the disease. Another 6,000 survivors of childhood and adolescent cancer are already living with cancer or its long-term effects.
