Team Spirit Rider Cancer Ride

Jacob Koomen enjoyed ‘The Ride To Conquer Cancer’ so much last year that he’s doing it again for 2010, but this time it will be on the tandem bike (The Spirit Rider) with his wife Jannie seated behind him. Jacob is Maintenance Manager at Sayward North hatchery.

Jannie has dedicated the ride in honour of her brother Cees who passed away in 2006 due to this horrible disease called cancer. Jacob and Jannie have a lofty goal of raising $5000 and know they can’t do it without your support. They would love to see their sponsor page filled with the names of friends and coworkers. Marine Harvest Canada has assisted with a $1000 donation.

The Ride to Conquer Cancer is a fundraiser for the BC Cancer Foundation, is a two-day cycling journey, through Canada’s Pacific region taking place in the summer. It will be a challenge in a number of ways, but on our tandem and with your generosity, a real impact will be made!
