Harbour Air is proud to not only sponsor but be an active participant in BC Cancer Foundations Tour de Cure (formerly Ride to Conquer Cancer). Most recently, in 2022, our team of riders, generous partners, suppliers, passengers, and employees were the #1 fundraising team helping raise $675,000. And while we’ve made huge ‘rides’ forward, unfortunately, so too has this destructive disease.
So, we’re upping our game and together with our team, setting a goal of $1,000,000.
Our team ‘Blood, Sweat, and Cures’ consists of more than 50 riders including Harbour Air employees, Lymphoma Researchers, Lymphoma Cancer Survivors, Instrumental BC Cancer Foundation Donors, and Anthem Properties employees. Riders will participate in 50 km, 100 km, or 160 km rides together cycling 550 kms during a two-day event August 26th & August 27. We believe by doing this we can show you how important we believe the work that the BC Cancer Foundation is doing and why we need your help.
Contribute to our teams goal of raising approximately $1,000,000 for the Centre for Lymphoid Cancer and leverage that through grants to as much as ten times.
These funds raised will be focused on:
- Developing accurate diagnostic tools and new treatments
- Tapping into state-of-the-art genomics, models, and testing to characterize the biology of lymphoma
- Implementing biomarker tests to better guide treatment decisions
- Developing a world-class training program to attract and ensure the next generations of leaders
