Nutri-Lawn is very proud to be sponsoring Dave Russell's efforts in the Ride to Conquer Cancer.
The Ride to Conquer Cancer® is a unique, two-day cycling event to take place on June 12-13, 2010, journeying over 200k from Toronto to Niagara Falls. The Ride is a brand new endeavour to Conquer Cancer In Our Lifetime. The money raised for The Ride to Conquer Cancer will benefit The Campbell Family Institute at The Princess Margaret, one of the top 5 cancer research centres in the world. The Princess Margaret has assembled a team of top doctors and scientists whose search for new discoveries and improved patient outcomes will have a real impact in our community, across Canada, and around the world.
Today we received this note from Dave:
Well, first of all I would like to thank Ted and all of the folks at Nutrilawn for their kind and generous support in this endeavor. Cancer is far too prevalent in our society. I have seen people from all ages and walks of life taken down by this horrendous disease. I preach to the kids in my class that they should not sit idly by, if they want to see a change than they need to make that change happen. Well, this is my chance to try and make a difference. With the help and generosity of people like Ted Dzialowski at Nutrilawn, maybe we can make a difference in the lives of some people, maybe we can make the world a little better place.
I have been training several times a week, and have logged several hundred kilometers on the road and a couple of hundred on the trails so far this season. The prospect of putting in two hundred kilometers in two days is daunting; however, it is not even a drop in the bucket of what others have to go through. My temporary pain is meant to be a testament to the strength and courage of those who have been and will be afflicted by this disease. Well, wish me luck, I hope that I make it, but more importantly, I hope to make a difference.
