There are a few ways you can still help CanadaWide for Cancer.
- Make a tax-deductible donation by clicking on the Sponsorship link.
- Email everyone you know who has been affected by cancer and tell them about David's upcoming journey. The more people who know about the ride, the more people who can be inspired to know that cancer can and will be beaten.
We'd like to thank you for visiting, hopefully this site will act as an example that anyone can make a difference in the lives of children.
