B.C. Premier Supports Ride to Conquer Cancer
Press release

Premier Gordon Campbell, MLA Sindi Hawkins and other members of the BC Legislature congregated on the steps of the Victoria Parliament Building on Wednesday to announce their support for The Ride to Conquer Cancer benefiting the BC Cancer Foundation. The Premier encouraged MLAs and other organization to get involved in the inaugural event by signing up and organizing teams to ride next June 20-21, 2009.

The Ride to Conquer Cancer benefiting the BC Cancer Foundation will raise money for research and enhancements to patient care at the BC Cancer Agency. Riders will begin a two-day journey from Vancouver, BC to Seattle, Washington on the morning of Saturday, June 20, 2009 with a moving opening ceremony in Vancouver, before embarking on the first leg of the journey. After camping overnight, the ride will end on Sunday afternoon in Seattle.

"Almost everyone has been touched in some way by cancer either directly or indirectly," said Premier Campbell. "This ride is a great way to raise awareness and support those impacted by cancer and I encourage people to get involved and participate in this unique event."

"The Ride to Conquer Cancer is an amazing opportunity," said Nick Locke, Senior Vice President of Development at the BC Cancer Foundation. "We at the BC Cancer Foundation are extremely grateful for the support we've received from Premier Campbell and our event Chair, MLA Sindi Hawkins. "

Registration for The Ride to Conquer Cancer benefiting the BC Cancer Foundation is now open. Call 1-888-771-BIKE or visit www.conquercancer.ca to sign-up today.
