Help us make a difference across Canada

The National Kids Cancer Ride is an 18 day cycling journey benefitting childhood cancer research in Canada. The event kicks off on September 4th in Vancouver arriving 17 days later in Halifax on September 21st.  30 National and Relay riders will cycle relay style in two teams across the country averaging a daily distance of 140km -200 km/day. The teams will visit over 100 communities, stop at a number of Canada’s children’s hospitals to get the latest update on childhood cancer research, meet a number of childhood survivors and their families and raise a ton of money that will improve the quality of life for children and their families living with, and beyond cancer. 

Be part of the game changing team raising necessary funds and awareness in the world of childhood cancer research and support.  Your efforts will bring us closer to a world beyond kids cancer and the hope that few parents will hear the words “Your child has cancer.”

Why We Ride

“The amazing thing about camp is seeing kids who were in the hospital every day the week before, sick and weak, watching them climb the rock walls, canoeing, laughing – and forgetting why
they were in the hospital at all” – Dr David Malkin
