More than 1,100 cyclists left Chilliwack Heritage Park on Saturday morning to pedal through the East Fraser Valley for good cause.
The BC Cancer Foundation’s annual Tool de Cure fundraiser passed through Chilliwack, Abbotsford, Langley and Aldergrove on August 27th, beginning and ending at Chilliwack’s big red barn.
This year, Ryder raised over $6.3 million.
Teams and individual riders cycled on one of three routes of 50, 100, and 160 kilometers to raise money for cancer research.
This is BC’s largest cycling fundraiser and is powered by Wheaton Precious Metal.
“I want to say a big thank you to all the riders, donors, volunteers, sponsors and supporters for their commitment to this year’s Tour de Cure. It’s very encouraging to be able to do this,” said Sarah Ross, president and CEO of the BC Cancer Foundation. “The funds raised will directly impact individuals facing cancer and their families across our state and will further the work of our amazing scientists and clinicians at BC Cancer.”
