Sunny skies led the way on Saturday as The Colliers Crusaders came together for a third straight year in the annual Ride for Cancer. 21 riders – and one fundraiser who did not ride – from Colliers Project Leaders and Colliers International took to the 100 km trail in their sharp, red bike jerseys.

The team received tremendous support from family, friends, colleagues and clients. 366 personal and team donors have helped raise $27,471 and counting. Hugh Bray was the top individual fundraiser for team, collecting over $4,000 in total donations.

Out of over 50+ teams, The Crusaders ranked fourth overall, putting them in the top five team fundraisers for the second straight year.

“The Crusaders continue to grow each year we take part,” smiles Bray. “As a team we’ve raised almost $60,000 in the three years we have taken part. That is something to be very proud of. We’re now a fixture in this event, and we’re looking forward to doing even better next year. In 2018, we already know that we want to push our overall 4 year donation total to more than $100,000.”

An annual event, The Ride for Cancer raises money for two worthy causes that make a lasting difference in the lives of patients facing a cancer diagnosis and their families. The funds raised will help purchase crucial cancer treatment equipment for the QE II Health Sciences Centre, and fund blood cancer research and patient education programs through The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society of Canada.

The 2017 Ride for Cancer was a tremendous success. The organizers had hoped for the participating riders to help generate $500,000 in donations. Ultimately, 475 riders participated on Saturday and the donation total hit $597,000 (after expenses) – and monies are still coming in! During its first three years, the Ride for Cancer has already raised over $1.2-million in total donations.

The Crusaders took the challenge to #GoBiggerforCancer and did it! Get your bikes ready to go in 2018!
