Sears National Kids Cancer Ride to raise funds for fighting against childhood cancer

A group of cyclists with the Sears National Kids Cancer Ride will embark on a 7,000 km journey across Canada to raise funds and awareness for children living with and beyond cancer.

The ride will start in White Rock, BC on Wednesday, September 7, 2016 and the cyclists are expected to arrive in Halifax on Saturday, September 24.

The Sears National Kids Cancer Ride funds programs that improve the lives of children living with cancer. Over $10 million has been raised and donated since 2008, and money raised this year will again fund pediatric hematology and oncology research programs at hospitals all across Canada.

Each year in Canada, about 1,500 children are diagnosed with cancer. With improved diagnosis and treatment 75% of children and teens now survive five years or more.
