raised for cancer care
Ride for Cancer powered by BMO Bank of Montreal is raising the bar for cancer care at the QEII. 2020 was a record-breaking year for the event, smashing a $1-million net goal for the first time, and amid a global pandemic.
Since 2015, the Ride community has funded vital equipment and technology for the QEII’s cancer centre. This community continues to improve the patient experience, making an impact from diagnosis to treatment.
For every nurse, unit manager, admin staff, housekeeper and professional who showed up to support cancer patients through the worst of COVID-19 – and for every Nova Scotian impacted by cancer – the Ride community pushes on.
With a commitment to following public health guidelines, the QEII Foundation hosted a fun and safe Ride day experience for more than 1,000 Riders, stakeholders and volunteers. And in addition to coming together for a day of movement, celebration and good energy, the Ride community is bringing the best in cancer care technology home to the East Coast. Funding tangible, local equipment that will intersect real Atlantic Canadian families is part of what makes Ride special for all involved.
For Riders like Melanie Clarke, a breast cancer survivor, mother and face of Ride for Cancer, crossing that finish
line – and what it means – is personal.
Melanie was on maternity leave with her first child when she found a lump in her breast at 34 years old.
In Atlantic Canada, half of us will face a cancer diagnosis in our lifetime. We need to invest in the treatments that are going to make it easier to get through. – Melanie Clarke
