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 2019, our team of riders, generous partners, suppliers, passengers, and employees helped raise more than $500,000. 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 $800,000
Since we’re looking to raise more, we know we need to do more. Our team ‘Blood, Sweat, and Cures’ consists of more than 50 riders made up of Harbour Air employees, Lymphoma Researchers, Lymphoma Cancer Survivors and instrumental BC Cancer Foundation Donors. Riders will participate in 50 km, 100 km, or 160 km rides together cycling 550 kms on 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. More information about the Tour de Cure event can be found here.
Contribute to our teams goal of raising approximately $800,000 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
