The Enbridge® Ride to Conquer Cancer® is supported each year by a group of dedicated leaders who volunteer their time and expertise to form a committee whose purpose is to recruit corporate teams and sponsors to the event. The Segal Cancer Centre at the Jewish General Hospital is incredibly grateful to these dedicated men and women, many of whom are also participants in and leading fundraisers for The Ride.
In particular, we would like to recognize the leaders of this committee, the Co-Chairs of the 2018 Ride.
