Ride to conquer cancer - Toronto Fitness Events

This is a new series to the Power Kitchen Blog where we will highlight different fitness based events happening in Toronto. Summer is upon us and thus there are a number of events to choose from. What better way to start than the 11th annual Ride to Conquer Cancer


Ride to Conquer Cancer


The Ride to Conquer Cancer is an annual bike ride from Toronto to Niagara Falls taking place over two days. The 2018 trip runs on June 9 – 10 with a one day ride option just on the 9th. With its growth, the ride now offers 3 different routes ranging from 200 km – 250 km.




Think you got what it takes? There is still time to register, in order to ride there is a $75 sign up fee and you must commit to raising between $2500 and $3000 depending on if you are doing the one or two day ride. May seem like a lot to gather but all the money goes into the fight against cancer.


The Cause

All profit from the Ride to Conquer cancer goes to Princess Margaret Cancer Centre and there fight against cancer. Thanks in part to the Ride to Conquer Cancer the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre has become a global leader in the treating and research of cancer recently being recognized as a top 5 cancer research centre in the world.
