Team Up To Win Your Spot In The Hospitality Tent

The Team Up Challenge is an incredible opportunity for our Ridership to amplify their impact through teamwork and win great prizes for it!

The more Riders you recruit to join you the larger the impact you make in the fight against cancer. Watch this 10-year anniversary recap video to see your impact and share with friends, family and coworkers to spread the word and grow The Ride.

TWO WAYS TO WIN

Only five VIP hospitality tent spots are up for grabs at The 2019 Ride! In the tent, your team will enjoy Camp in the lap of luxury with live music, delicious food, drinks without the lineup, and many more perks.

Want one of those coveted spots? You have two ways to get your team into the tent.

  • If your team is one of the top three teams to recruit the most, new teammates during Team Up Challenge, you will win a spot in the VIP hospitality tent at The 2019 Ride.
  • Teams that recruit five or more new Riders to join their team will be entered into a draw for two additional spots in the tent – and get a kilometre of The Ride dedicated to your team. Each additional five new Riders gets you another entry to the draw.

GROW YOUR TEAM TODAY!

Call or message everyone you know today from your Participant Centre and ask them to ride with your team in 2019!

HOW TEAM UP CHALLENGE WORKS:

  • Teams that add five or more Riders between October 1 and November 9 will have a kilometre of The Ride dedicated to them.
  • Any team that earns a kilometre will also be entered into a draw to win one of two team spots for The Ride’s VIP hospitality tent on event.
  • For every five new Riders that a team adds, it will receive one entry into the draw. For example, should a team add 15 new Riders between October 1 and November 9, it will receive three entries into the draw to win one of the two additional team spots in the VIP hospitality tent.
  • The top three teams to add the most Riders between October 1 and November 9 through filling spots and/or recruiting will automatically win.

Why I Ride: Team Captain Joel Fransen’s Story and team Better Outcomes 2

“Dr. Fred Weinstein, a great friend and colleague, lost his fight with cancer in the autumn of 2017. My wife’s uncle, Stephen Hill, lost his fight with cancer early in 2018. Dr. Michele Williams is the matriarch of our team and all of us Ride in her honour; she lost her fight with cancer in 2015. These three people are central to Why I Ride and will continue to Ride.

 

Being part of team Better Outcomes 2 has shown me camaraderie at its best time after time.  This year my co-captain, Marc Schouten, tore his Achilles heel and could not use his right leg for cycling — and our team leaves not a bat nor a man behind. Marc modified a tandem bike, which allowed him to pedal with just his left leg. Mark Sherrington and I then shared duties riding with Marc. Over two days, in inclement weather, two fellows and just three functional legs propelled the boat anchor of a tandem bike over 200-kilometers. We were not fast, but we conquered the Ride and loved every minute of it. Join me this year for an Epic Ride and let’s pedal and save lives!” – Joel Fransen, Captain of Better Outcomes 2

When we double our Riders, we double our impact. That’s why we want you to recruit a Rider or register as one for this year’s Gear Up Challenge, which will run from Sunday, February 4—World Cancer Day—through Friday, March 16!

The Ride’s Gear Up Challenge is your opportunity to be part of the annual global event of World Cancer Day, which reminds each of us that cancer is no match against our conviction to conquer it.

Plus, earn awesome 10-year anniversary Ride swag to complete your look for event weekend! With every Rider you recruit between February 4 and March 16, you get one person closer to receiving all of our great Gear Up Challenge rewards:

And new for 2018, the first 100 Riders to recruit a new participant will receive a $50 fundraising gift courtesy of Mr. William McCarthy!* To earn your Gear Up rewards, have your referred Rider enter your name or participant number when they are prompted to fill the referral area during registration.

NOTE: All fundraising credits have been redeemed. Thank you to all those who participated!

If you have yet to join The 2018 Ride, now is the time to do it! Register between February 4 and March 16 to receive these great perks:

  • A $50 registration discount using the promo code GEARUP18
  • The chance to win our Gear Up Challenge rewards—water bottle, cycling hat and arm warmers—with each new Rider you recruit

Whether you are already a Rider or thinking of becoming one, YOU can further our goal of conquering cancer this World Cancer Day. Recruit that new Rider or become part of our epic Ridership for the 2018 Gear Up Challenge!

* The maximum fundraising gift to be earned by each Rider is capped at $150 or three referrals. You may receive the fundraising gift only for referring new Riders. A new Rider is anyone who is not currently registered and did not register for the 2017 event. Your account will be credited within 1 to 10 business days. 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 others 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…

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS

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 in your Participant Centre. 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 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 two premium bottles of wine and gift certificate to a local wine store, Guy Mirabella’s cookbook Eat Ate and gift certificate to a local book store and a three-day pass to SoulCycle Yaletown.

‘TIS THE SEASON TASKS

  1. Raise $250. The Ride is just six short months away! While you may have all things holidays on your mind right now, it’s also the perfect time to kick-start your event fundraising. How to easily raise that amount? Just ask your friends or family members to donate to your Ride in lieu of a holiday gift. Come New Year, you could already be well on your way to achieving or surpassing your goal!
  2. Update your Personal Page. Sharing why you joined our Ridership is a way to invest others in your quest to conquer cancer in our lifetime and increase your fundraising tally. During the holidays, you can also use your Personal Page to thank the people in your life for the donations they’ve given. Already have a customized Personal Page? Just upload a holiday-themed picture to fulfill this task!
  3. Make a self-donation. Who said that holiday gifts have to come from other people? By self-donating to your Ride, you will show to everyone you know just how committed you are to our cause and incentivize them to follow your lead. Plus, a donation to yourself is really the gift that keeps on giving, as every little bit furthers research and treatment supported by BC Cancer Foundation.
  4. Refer a friend. The holidays often mean time spent with loved ones, but what about the rest of the year? The Ride offers the perfect chance to ask that co-worker, cousin, childhood friend or other favourite person to be at your side this June. Not only will you have opportunities for bonding time as you train, but also you’ll be making amazing memories together during event weekend!

‘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!
