You would think that when you are cycling over 400 km from Kelowna to Delta, following the most direct route possible would be a top priority. But safety trumps distance and that means not every part of the Ride2Survive route is the fastest way to get to Delta. That's just the way it goes.
But when it comes to getting as much money possible directly into the hands of cancer researchers, Ride2Survive has paved the way.
Here's why donating to R2S is your best option.
Ride2Survive Funds Their Own Ride
Unlike other events and fundraisers, Ride2Survive doesn't take any money from donations to pay for the ride, cover administration costs, food, rentals or any other expense that is associated with putting on this event. That money comes directly from each rider through the registration fees they pay to participate in Ride2Survive. That fee is in addition to the commitment each rider makes to raise a minimum of $2,500 in donations.
This is a 100% Volunteer Driven Event
Everything is done through the generosity and efforts of volunteers. Everything.
Nobody is Taking a Cut
Not even the Canadian Cancer Society. Ride2Survive is the Canadian Cancer Society's single largest independent fund raiser. In the nine years that Ride2Survive has been going they have raised over $2 million dollars. Ride2Survive has a very unique arrangement with the Society in that every dollar Ride2Survive raises gets allocated to research. No amount gets allocated to the Canadian Cancer Society's administration costs.
That alone, is reason to support Ride2Survive. You would be hard pressed to find another way to get 100% of your donation to finding a cure.
It's why Warline supports Ride2Survive.
We have family, friends, neighbours, colleagues and customers that have fought, are fighting and lost the fight against this awful disease. We believe that through research, they will find a cure. We just need to keep funding it.
Ride2Survive is an incredible events. 80 riders cycling from Kelowna to Delta in one day. 400 km. 12,000 feet of climbing. A support crew of 80. One long, hard, exhausting day of cycling to mimic one day of having cancer. All to raise money to find a cure to beat this awful disease.
