Our cycling team has been just blowing the doors off in fundraising. I can’t say enough about the hard work of everyone on the Extreme Style cycling team, and the over 600 generous sponsors who have given to battle this terrible disease. By next Sunday we will be well on our way to beating last year’s total of $90,000 raised for the Ride to Conquer Cancer. We have over 25 riders and generous sponsorship from the wonderful people at Alberto European Extreme Style.
Because everyone is rocking the fundraising so well, we have the ability to share with someone who may not have the connections or resources that we do. We were thinking of all the people affected by cancer here in BC, and the hundreds of people who had committed themselves to the Ride and to raising funds for the BC Cancer Agency and the groundbreaking research they do.
So here’s our idea…Alberto European Extreme Style is going to match funds to enable someone to ride that wouldn’t have been able to otherwise, despite their best efforts to meet the minimum fundraising threshold.
If you know an inspiring person in Vancouver who is registered for the Ride to Conquer Cancer, please nominate them for this award. Our sponsor is offering up to $1,250 matching funds for the Ride to Conquer Cancer for one deserving cancer survivor or caregiver who has been unable to raise their minimum.
To nominate, please go to our Extreme Style Cycling Team facebook page and post the nomination to the Wall, providing a link to their Ride page in the post. We’ll decide on Tuesday June 15th next week.

Hope to see you on the ride, and please spread this around to everyone you know who is registered, inspiring, struggling to meet their fundraising goal, and is ready to Ride down to Seattle!
