GET RIDE READY THIS MONTH!
The 11th Enbridge® Ride to Conquer Cancer® benefiting Princess Margaret Cancer Centre is coming up soon, and we want to help you Get Ride Ready for it!
That’s why we’ll be sharing easy, doable 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!
Over the next four weeks, the top 50 Riders who raise the most fundraising dollars will be entered to win a pair of Leafs tickets.* But that’s not all! The top 50 Riders who receive the most individual donations will be eligible to win a pair of Raptors tickets** both courtesy of Scotiabank!
To Get Ride Ready, check back to this page each week for our Rider-tested, Rider-approved tips. As Rider Céline Courteau knows, there’s no better way to a potential donor’s heart than through their stomachs! Her delicious Rider tip:
“My partner Louis and I started participating in The Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer in 2010. We love riding bikes, of course, but we are mainly driven by the innovative treatment that research has brought and that Louis has benefited from as a non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma survivor.
For us, fundraising is the hardest part. So, we decided to capitalize on Louis’ cooking talent! We now cater dinner parties in private homes in exchange for donations. It’s a lot of work and a big time investment, but we raise money for The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation doing something we love. Good food for a great cause!”

All Gear Up Challenge items can be picked up during local orientations, at the local office, during packet pickup prior to the event or on event. No Gear Up rewards will be mailed out.
The holidays are finally here! And we want to celebrate with our epic Ridership what it means to Be The Ride during this most wonderful time of the year.
Tuesday, November 28, is #GivingTuesdayCA, as well as the kickoff day of The Ride’s ‘Tis The Season contest! This festive competition is a chance for Riders to boost both their fundraising tallies and invite other to join them on the Ride through fun donation and referral challenges, and here’s how can you get in on all this holiday cheer…
Over the next few weeks, we are issuing out a challenge to all Riders to complete four tasks, and with each task you fulfill, a mystery holiday badge will be unlocked on your Personal Page. Carry out all four Ride challenges—in any order—between now and Wednesday, December 20, at 11:59 p.m., and you will successfully complete ‘Tis The Season!
For all your hard work, holiday rewards will be had! Each completed task will also give you one entry into our holiday basket giveaway. Should you be the lucky winner, you will receive a gift basket filled with delicious gourmet items courtesy of Vincenzo’s.
‘Tis The Season is a challenge to both enjoy the holidays and get us closer to our goal to conquer cancer, so join us this December… Be Merry. Be Generous. Be The Ride!
