I would like you to pledge me for this motorcycle ride. You all know this is the only event which I will ask my family, friends and colleagues to make a personal pledge. You also know I am not punishing my body in a marathon, I'm not cycling up mountains, nor swimming great lakes. I'm on the back of my husband's motorcycle for three days and I'm thinking about the work I get to do. Everyday. 

For nearly 30 years, I have been going to work for children with cancer. This weekend is no different. Since we began this ride 15 years ago, we have seen and funded amazing advances in bench, clinical and psychosocial research right here at the University of Calgary. Yet, none so distinct as the programs that Kids Cancer Care provides - like our scholarships, education support, tutoring and exercise programs. Today, we fill up our newly diagnosed family's freezers with food and fill their hearts with hope. We have built Camp Kindle, our retreat for our kids and families to get away from the everyday rigours of treatment, worry and uncertainty.

And we have given countless families hope. Hope that cure is in their child’s future. And that they survive in body, mind and spirit. That belongs to them. Every pledge will bring it closer. That is what we have done with your pledges from the last 14 years. It’s what we will continue to do.

Please. Help us, we, them, to continue to make it so.

Pledge me.
