Campaigns And Challenges
The 10th anniversary Enbridge® Ride to Conquer Cancer® benefiting the Jewish General Hospital’s Segal Cancer Centre is coming up soon, and we want to help you Get Ride Ready for it!
That’s why we’ll be sharing some great tips this month to push your fundraising over the finish line or even achieve Ambassador status, plus offering great prizes and flash challenges along the way.
Without further ado… We have the first Get Ride Ready challenge for you!
Between now and Friday, June 29, the top 25 Riders who fundraise the most donation dollars will be entered to win three Montreal Canadiens tickets (Red section, center ice). AND the top 25 Riders who receive the most individual donations will also be entered to win two Habs tickets (Red section, 3rd row at the blue line).*
If you run out of ideas to get those donations, all you need is to turn to those you know. Here is a tip from Rider Jean-Louis Villeneuve from Team Le Groupe Villeneuve et Cie who knows, your network can be your greatest asset when it comes to fundraising:
“I always believed that the biggest challenge on The Ride was to raise as many funds as possible, and that the ride itself was the time to enjoy all our efforts. In terms of fundraising, our team set a high goal to get as many funds as possible.
Personally, I’ve found that one of the best ways to fundraise is to reach out to my clients. These people know you, respect you and are eager to support and lend a hand. Those who help me reach my goal always give generously and thanks to them, our team has raised over $43,000 to date this year to help conquer cancer.”
Did you know that you can Get Ride Ready in just minutes?

*Between June 6 and June 29, the top 25 participants who have raised the most fundraising dollars for their personal fundraising efforts will have a chance to win three Montreal Canadiens tickets for the 2018-2019 season. Between June 6 and June 29, the top 25 participants who have received the most individual donations will have a chance to win a pair of Montreal Canadiens tickets for the 2018-2019 season.
Epic Match is now over. We reached $50,000 in less than one day. Thank you to all Riders who participated.
The Enbridge Ride® to Conquer Cancer® has unlocked an epic matching gift of $50,000 to help Riders with their fundraising.
That’s right! For a limited time only, when you fundraise between $100 and $300, you’ll get those dollars matched!
But just like all things epic, this won’t last long. Once the $50,000 is gone, so is your chance to boost your fundraising tally. Need help getting started? Check out our fundraising toolkit or call one of our Ride Guides at (866) 996-8356.

Minimum donation to be eligible for a matching gift is $100. Maximum donation for a matching gift is $300. Total matching gift amount available is $50,000. All matching gift will be made into Rider fundraising accounts within one to 10 business days of their deposited donations with a fundraising gift that matches the deposited donations.
