Marc Martel challenges himself to a 240 km bike ride

Marc Martel is once again participating in the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer this July and he is asking you to sponsor him so he can raise as much money as possible to fight this horrible disease. The proceeds from the Ride fund research into cancer at multiple locations in Montreal, Quebec and across the country.

The ride itself is a 240 km bicycle ride from Montreal to Quebec City over two days. A ride of this length is definitely a personal challenge – He will pedal his bicycle approximately 55,00 times before he reaches the finish line – but this is nothing compared to the challenge the patients, doctors and researchers have in the battle of this terrible disease.

As with most people, Marc has had several very close friends and family members battle cancer, and fortunately most have become survivors but he has also lost some dear friends who he will be thinking of throughout the ride. Again this year he will be carrying with me the picture of one friend who lost his battle almost two years ago.

Marc would ask you to please think about all of those friends, family members, colleagues, teachers, team mates that you know that have been faced with cancer and donate at least $10 for each.

Marc's goal is to raise $3,200 and if you help him reach his goal, he will commit to doing the ride again next year and continuing to fund this important research.
