Ride for Karen 2017

August 13 @ 7:00 am - 5:00 pm

Started in 2002, the RIDE FOR KAREN is a yearly cycling event that is held as a tribute to the life and legacy of Karen Tobias and to raise money for charities that help people living with cancer, and those who care for them. In the last fifteen years the Ride for Karen has raised over $2,410,000, which was used to help build and furnish new cancer care facilities, provide much needed resources for cancer support centres and send kids with cancer to camp. As a cancer patient, Karen knew first hand that hospitals were not a very positive environment in which to spend a lot of time. Karen wanted to make a difference and was dedicated to improving the quality of life of cancer patients with one goal in mind – Improving Hope – which she felt was a critical component of cancer care. We as a family have created the Ride for Karen to continue her work in an effort to harness the positive power of hope. All the monies raised from the 2017 Ride for Karen will be used to send kids with cancer to camp. This year’s ride will feature three events, a 200km course, a 160km course, and a 100km course.
