For Noilly Pratt and his brother-in-law who is participating in the Ride to Conquer Cancer.


If you are interested in supporting The ride to conquer Cancer and are looking for a good team to donate too.... Look no further.

Quote:
Today I signed up to help to raise money for cancer research and treatments. On June 27 and 28, 2009 I will be participating in The Ride to Conquer Cancer. It is a 200+ kilometer bicycle ride from Calgary, south along the eastern foothills of the Rocky Mountains. I am part of a team from work called The Rail Riders. To particpate I must raise $2,500.00 in sponsors. So far I have raised $275.00. Any and all contributions are greatly appreciated. All donations are tax deductible and a tax receipt will be sent out for all donations of $10.00 and over. All money raised goes towards cancer research and treatments in Alberta, but the results of the research is shared world wide.

If you are able to help out sign on to www.conquercancer.ca. Click on Alberta, then donate, then select the search for a participant radio button ( this is the default ). Enter Tom in first name McKay in last name and then click on find a participant. So far I am the only Tom McKay, but if there is another I am the one on the Rail Riders team.

If you would prefer to make a donation by phone, simply call 1-888-624-BIKE.

I will be doing the ride on my bicycle, not unicycle due to the long distance.

Feel free to pass this information along to anybody else who may want to support me in this important cause, and hopefully cancer can be beaten in our lifetimes.


If you guys want to donate points just donate your points to me with a subject line of "Ride to Conquer Cancer" and I will match them and send a donation on behalf of MoPo.

$1 = 200,000 points.

Actually, I'm not riding, but Tom is. I'm just helping him fund raise! He's a cancer survivor and is famous around Calgary - He unicycles to work in almost all weather. When the winter comes, he bicycles instead. It has to be way below zero before he resorts to his car.

Actually, he's my bro-in-law, but we're as close as brothers anyway.

Thanks Luapo for doing this! Now Cancer will feel the awesome power of MOPO pushing against it! Mr. Green

3,200,000 points have been donated so far. That is great so I will match it for a total of 6,400,000.

Here is the poster that Righteous and Luke came up with. It will be posted on the homepage on Monday. Mr. Green

Awesome, Luapo! When next I'm in your neck of the woods, I owe you a beer!

(no smiley at the end of that sentence, 'cause it's true! :D

$77.00 donated on behalf of MoPo members so far. Looks like Tom is around $300 away from his goal of $2500 Mr. Green

Just an update 'coz I finally saw Tom over the Easter weekend. He drove out to the West Coast to see the family.

He's reached his fund raising goal of $2,500 and thanks to the generosity of my MoPo bretheren, the kick-ass poster from Luapo and all those who donated, he's got raised enough to participate in the ride.

I'm not going to be able to cheer for him in Calgary, but I intend to go to the ride here in BC (they're going from Vancouver to Seattle) and I'll be somewhere on the route urging them on.

He wanted to make sure I thank you all again for helping. He was quite overwhelmed when he saw donations from you guys.

If you want to read his blog on the "Ride to Conquer Cancer site, click here.

Short bio: He works at the railway office by day and for fun he juggles, unicycles and is available for hire as a Jester - you may have seen him at the Calgary Stampede and at some sporting events at the Saddledome.

I'll update this more later...the ride is June 27 - 28.

Thank Righteous and Luke for the poster. I was just the enabler.

Glad to see that his fundraising goal has been met. Mr. Green
