A note from Mel Saari …

Hi cycling friends,

As I stare down yet another birthday I decided it’s time to take care of one of the big items that’s been on my bucket list for a while. Therefore I enrolled in the two-day Ride to Conquer Cancer, presented by Silver Wheaton and benefiting the BC Cancer Foundation.

Along with my team mates from the Cyclepath Cyclotrons and thousands of other cyclists, I will be making a 200 Km ride from Vancouver BC to Seattle WA on August 29-30, 2015. All proceeds will go to the BC Cancer Foundation to support cancer research, treatment, and services. BC Cancer Foundation is a leading comprehensive institution devoted to cancer research and care. The work they’re doing is cutting-edge and will help cancer patients world-wide.

As I’ve agreed to raise at least $2,500, please consider making a donation in support of my ride. You can use the link at the bottom of this email to visit my personal webpage to donate online or request a donation form. Any donations large & small would be most welcome. Canadian Tax receipts are available for all donations over $10.00.

Also if you know of anyone else who might be interested in supporting my ride please send them my website link.

Statistics show that over 45% of men and 40% of women will develop cancer in their lifetime, and 1 in 4 Canadians will die of cancer. That’s why I’m riding. To do something worthwhile in the battle against this difficult disease while I still can. I hope that you’ll share in this adventure by supporting my fundraising efforts.

Thank you in advance for your generosity!

Mel Saari
