February 8/12 9:13 am - eRace Cancer Cycling Team & Club Announces 2012 Squad

Posted by Editoress on 02/8/12

Lori and Peter Kofman are pleased to announce the creation of a new Ontario-based Masters cycling racing team and club. The team has been established to utilize racing as a catalyst for raising funds for cancer research.

“We started eRace Cancer cycling team in response to my fathers’ death from cancer last year” says Peter. “It quickly hatched into an initiative that attracted like-minded racers, cyclists and sponsors. We are all interested in using our resources and racing energies to help raise money and awareness for this cause.”

The team consists of road, mountain and cyclo-cross racers who will race throughout the season at local, provincial, national and international events. The team includes and is represented by supporters, survivors and athletes, all of whom took up the charge because in one way or another cancer has touched them.

eRace Cancer has an impressive slate of founding sponsors that are supporting the team and have to date, donated over $40,000 in support of the Princess Margaret Hospital. In addition to corporate donations, the key fund raising concept of the team will be that every team member will raise funds from their individual sponsors for races completed and podiums received.

The team currently consists of 25 members with a goal to raise $100,000 by year’s end. The team plans to collectively race in over 100 races in the 2012 season. In addition to the founding funding partners, the team has attracted notable associate service providers who are stepping up to support the team in its mission throughout the racing season.
