Ride to Conquer Cancer: A Bicycle Battle Cry
Last year, DIALOG architect Graeme Hackett died suddenly of brain cancer. He was just 33 years old. As one of our partners noted the day of his funeral, ‘Graeme was just getting started’. Just 6 months later, DIALOG technologist Dieter Janczak died suddenly of cancer. It was Christmas Day. These were huge losses and had a deep impact on our entire company. Rather than try to forget these tragedies, or those that have touched ALL our personal lives, we’re determined to fight back against cancer. We have decided to team up in The Ride to Conquer Cancer and as one of our trusted partners we need your help.
At DIALOG we believe the bicycle is a powerful weapon on many fronts but particularly as it relates to health + happiness. As such, three teams of riders across DIALOG’s four Canadian studios are participating in this two-day cycling event. This is a 48-hour community fundraising effort with tens of thousands of participants across Canada. Most important, the Ride to Conquer Cancer supports critical research and innovation centers such and the BC Cancer Foundation, the Alberta Cancer Foundation, and the Princess Margret Cancer Foundation; organizations that, with commitment, can help eradicate cancer in our lifetime.
By supporting our ride you’ll stand hand-in-hand (or wheel to wheel) with DIALOG as we photograph, map, tweet, render, film, honour, sweat and fight our way through this 200km+ ride. And make no mistake, we will be loudly shouting the praises of those who join us. We’re here because we know that cancer is too big a disease to ignore or to battle alone. It affects everyone, maybe you, your parents, kids, siblings or friends. Sadly, maybe all of the above. But by riding in this event we are doing something about it. We’re rolling closer and closer to the end of cancer.
Please donate and thank you so much in advance for your support.
