THE ENBRIDGE RIDE TO CONQUER CANCER ANNOUNCES $19,033,000 MILLION RAISED AS 8TH ANNUAL RIDE COMMENCES IN ONTARIO

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

TORONTO, June 13, 2015 - The Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer announced 4,853 riders raised $19,033,000 million for The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation as the eighth annual Ride commenced in Ontario on Saturday. Funds raised through Canada's largest cycling fundraiser support Personalized Cancer Medicine, the new gold standard in cancer care, at The Princess Margaret, across Ontario, and around the world.

"The Ride is a true testament to strength in numbers and we are so grateful of the incredible community of riders, sponsors, donors, crew members and volunteers for making our eighth annual Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer an overwhelming success," said Paul Alofs, President and CEO of The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.

"Forty percent of Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetime. As one of the top 5 cancer research centres in the world, The Princess Margaret is determined to continue asking the question that is at the basis of all research: ‘why?’ Why is in our DNA at The Princess Margaret. It is our mission to conquer cancer in our lifetime, and the vital $19,033,000 million raised will help The Princess Margaret lead the way in Personalized Cancer Medicine," Alofs added.

In eight years, The Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer raised over $138 million for The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation and over $281 million for cancer research, treatment, education and care programs across the country. The annual event draws thousands of participants and brings together communities of cancer survivors, cyclists and supporters who train and fundraise in order to participate in the two-day, 200-kilometre Ride between Toronto and Niagara Falls.

"I am participating in The Ride to Conquer Cancer on behalf of my best friend Sarah who died of adrenal gland cancer when she was only 19-years-old," said Caitlin Rosenbaum, a first-year participant from Toronto.

"Sarah, who I met when I was five, lost her battle at The Princess Margaret, so the fact that my Ride funds are immediately put to use at this world-renowned cancer centre is very important to me, as The Princess Margaret gave Sarah great care while she was being treated. Sarah didn't get to finish university, but I will finish my first 200-kilometre Ride to Conquer Cancer in her memory. It's something I just have to do," Rosenbaum added.

Enbridge is the title sponsor of The Ride to Conquer Cancer, since 2011. Collectively more than 1,700 Enbridge employees, their friends and their families have raised over $5.7 million for The Ride across Canada. Sponsorship funds donated by Enbridge allow dollars raised by Ride participants to support cancer programs at The Princess Margaret.

"The Ride's mission is very personal to Enbridge employees, along with our community of friends and family members, as we have all been touched by cancer in some form," said Glenn Beaumont, President of Enbridge Gas Distribution.

"It is an honour to support The Princess Margaret as they are making great strides every day to conquer this terrible disease. We are celebrating the success of this year and look forward to The Ride every year," added Beaumont.

Organizers released the dates of June 11th and 12th for the 2016 event, and encourage people of all athletic abilities to participate in the ninth annual Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer.

"Register today at our re-registration tent, visit us online at www.conquercancer.ca or call us at 877-699-BIKE," Alofs concluded.

Ride organizers expect thousands of Ontarians to attend public cheering stations from Toronto to Niagara Falls. For a map of the Ride routes, visit www.conquercancer.ca

THE ENBRIDGE RIDE TO CONQUER CANCER ANNOUNCES $20 MILLION RAISED AS 7TH ANNUAL RIDE COMMENCES IN ONTARIO

Canada's largest cycling fundraiser draws 5,212 riders in support of Personalized Cancer Medicine at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre in Toronto.

TORONTO, June 7, 2014 - The Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer announced 5,212 riders helped raise $20 million for The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation as the 7th annual Ride commenced in Ontario on Saturday. Funds raised through Canada's largest cycling fundraiser support Personalized Cancer Medicine at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.

“The overwhelming success of our 7th annual Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer is a direct result of this passionate and selfless community of riders, sponsors, donors, crew members and volunteers who support our mission to conquer cancer in our lifetime,” said Paul Alofs, President and CEO of The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.

“Two in five Canadians will be diagnosed with cancer and this year, over 76,000 Canadians will die from the disease. Through the creation and implementation of the new gold standard in cancer care, the vital $20 million raised will help The Princess Margaret create and implement Personalized Cancer Medicine, which allows The Princess Margaret to detect cancers earlier, diagnose and target cancers more precisely and to provide support to patients and their families,” Alofs added.

In seven years, The Enbridge Ride To Conquer Cancer raised over $119 million for The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation and over $240 million for cancer research, treatment and care programs across the country. The annual event draws thousands of participants and brings together communities of cancer survivors, cyclists and supporters who train and fundraise in order to participate in the two-day, 200km Ride between Toronto and Niagara Falls.

“In 2009 my dad was diagnosed with non-Hodgkins lymphoma, and in 2013, I was diagnosed with cervical cancer. Most recently, my uncle succumbed from multiple myeloma and amyloidosis,” said Andrea Rodriguez, a sixth-year rider from Oshawa.

“I am riding in 2014 to celebrate my life as a cancer survivor, to honour my dad's ability to conquer cancer, to remember my uncle and to fundraise for cancer research at The Princess Margaret. Unfortunately, at some point in everyone's life, we're all going to be affected by cancer and we need to conquer this disease before we lose more of our loved ones,” Rodriguez added.

Enbridge is the title sponsor of The Ride to Conquer Cancer and since 2011, more than 1,000 Enbridge employees, their friends and families have raised more than $3.6 million for The Ride across Canada. Sponsorship funds donated by Enbridge enable more funds raised by Ride participants to support cancer programs at The Princess Margaret.

“Enbridge is proud to be part of the remarkable success of this year’s Ride and we look forward to being a part of this incredible event next year,” said Glenn Beaumont, President of Enbridge Gas Distribution.

“Our community of employees, their families and friends are honoured to support The Princess Margaret in their efforts to conquer cancer in our lifetime,” Beaumont added.

Ride organizers released the dates of June 13th and 14th for the 2015 Ride, and encourage people of all athletic abilities to participate in the 8th annual Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer.

THE ENBRIDGE RIDE TO CONQUER CANCER ANNOUNCES $19.1 MILLION RAISED AS 6TH ANNUAL RIDE COMMENCES IN ONTARIO

The largest cycling fundraiser in Canada draws 5,020 riders and supports Personalized Cancer Medicine at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre in Toronto. FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

(Toronto; June 8, 2013) --The Enbridge Ride To Conquer Cancer announced 5,020 riders helped raise $19.1 million for The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation as the sixth annual Ride commenced in Ontario on Saturday. Funds raised through Canada’s largest cycling fundraiser support Personalized Cancer Medicine at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.

“We extend our utmost gratitude and well wishes to this incredible community of Riders, Crew Members, Volunteers, and their extended networks of family and supporters for helping to make the sixth annual Enbridge Ride To Conquer Cancer an overwhelming success,” said Paul Alofs, President and CEO of The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.

“This year over 187,600 new cancer cancer cases will be diagnosed in Canada, and 75,500 Canadians will die from this horrid disease. As one of the top 5 cancer research centres in the world, The Princess Margaret is determined to conquer cancer in our lifetime. This vital $19.1 million raised is already powering Personalized Cancer Medicine at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre, enabling the continuity of world-leading research, treatment advances, education and new standards of care right here in Toronto,” Alofs added.

In six years, The Enbridge Ride To Conquer Cancer raised over $99.3 million for The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation and over $194.6 million for cancer research, treatment and care programs across the country. The annual event draws thousands of participants and brings together communities of cancer survivors, cyclists and supporters who train and fundraise in order to participate in the two-day, 200 km Ride between Toronto and Niagara Falls.

“My cousin Jennifer was diagnosed with stage II Lymphoma and battled the disease for almost five years before passing away at the age of 27,” said Joanna Kadwell, a first-year participant from Oakville, Ontario.

"Jennifer was the first to donate to my fundraising goal but she sadly lost her fight in October, on my 16th birthday. She fought a long and brave battle and I miss her every day. I am participating in The Ride to honour my role model, and I only hope that funds raised can prevent others from leaving us too soon," Kadwell added.

Funds raised through The Ride support The Princess Margaret’s creation and implementation of Personalized Cancer Medicine, which detects cancers earlier, diagnoses cancers more precisely, targets treatments more specifically and provides comprehensive support to patients and their families.

“Our personalized treatment and care programs make a substantial impact on cancer patient outcomes,” says Dr. Jonathan Irish, Head of Surgical Oncology at the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.

“These vital funds raised support the continuity of our world-leading research programs, including immune therapy, stem cell and tumour hypoxia programs. Our research platforms incorporate the latest in image-guided technology and robotic surgery, while our clinical trials support specific cancer types through our world-class BioBanke. Funds raised through The Ride also support over 150 highly-skilled clinical scientists and over 1,000 team members who are employed through our research initiatives,” Dr. Irish added.

In 2011, “The Ride To Conquer Cancer” became known as “The Enbridge Ride To Conquer Cancer” when Enbridge became the National Title Sponsor.

“Enbridge employees and our community of friends and family members celebrate this overwhelming success for The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation,” said Guy Jarvis, President of Enbridge Gas Distribution.

“We are honoured to support The Princess Margaret in its valiant initiative to conquer cancer in this lifetime, and we offer our thanks and gratitude to the critical, world-leading cancer programs it’s leading," Jarvis added.

Alofs says all sponsorships are vital components to all charitable initiatives because they help pay for the event costs.

“We are beyond grateful to all our sponsors for their support. The generous contributions from Enbridge and all of our sponsors enable more funds raised through The Ride to support vital cancer programs at The Princess Margaret,” Alofs added.

Moments before the start of The Ride, Alofs and event organizers addressed thousands of participants simultaneously in Toronto and Niagara Falls to share the fundraising and participant totals for the 2013 event.

Ride organizers released the dates of June 7th and 8th for the 2014 Ride, and opened registration for the event.

“We extend a warm welcome to everyone here today and hope you all will join us next year for the 7th annual Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer,” said Alofs.

“Register today at our re-registration tent, visit our 2014 website at www.conquercancer.ca or call us at 877 699 BIKE,” Alofs concluded as thousands of Riders cheered and the 2013 Ride commenced.

Ride organizers expect thousands of Ontarians to attend public cheering stations along the route. For a map of the Ride routes, visit www.conquercancer.ca.

THE ENBRIDGE RIDE TO CONQUER CANCER WILL CONTINUE MULTIPLE START, FINISH AND ROUTE CHOICES FOR 2013 TORONTO EVENT

2012 Ride set fundraising and participation records in Canada and benefits The Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation

June 10, 2012 (Toronto): The Enbridge Ride To Conquer Cancer announced the 2013 Ride will include multiple start, finish and route choices between Toronto and Niagara Falls after this year’s event drew 4,852 participants who raised $18.1 million in total. The 2012 event set fundraising and participation records, as dollars raised support the creation and implementation of Personalized Cancer Medicine at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.

“This has been an absolutely incredible and insightful weekend,” said Paul Alofs, President and CEO of The Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation.

“Our 5th annual Enbridge Ride To Conquer Cancer has been record-breaking, and our decision to offer multiple starts, finishes and routes between Toronto and Niagara Falls for the first time has been well-received by Riders. Additionally, we’ve gained some incredible leanings to build on this success in 2013. In fact, we’re already seeing strong numbers of Riders signing up now for next year’s event,” Alofs added.

For the first time in The Ride’s five-year history, the event start, finish and opening ceremonies took place in two locations: Toronto and Niagara Falls. Moments before the start, Alofs and event organizers addressed thousands of participants simultaneously in both Toronto and Niagara Falls, and shared the total number of participants and funds raised for the 2012 event. Audio and video from each location was simulcast live at both venues.

This year participants could select from six different routes between Toronto and Niagara Falls with an overnight campsite at Mohawk College in Hamilton. From start to finish, each Rider cycled over 200km along roads through the countryside of Ontario.

“I have taken part in The Ride for four years and this year has been particularly exciting as we celebrate the fifth annual event with participants cycling on different routes, but for one cause,” says Rob McColm from Oakville.

“I have seen first-hand the difference that research has made at The Princess Margaret. They saved my life four years ago and my wife’s life this year. I look forward to this event every year and will definitely be back in 2013,” McColm added.

Now commencing for the 6th consecutive year, The Enbridge Ride To Conquer Cancer remains the largest cycling fundraiser in Canadian history, having raised over $80.2 million for The Princess Margaret, and $149.3 for cancer institutes across Canada. The annual event draws tens of thousands of participants from across the nation and brings together communities of survivors, cyclists and supporters who train and fundraise for months to participate in The Ride.

“We are making great strides in our mission to conquer cancer in our lifetime. Yet, on average, everyday, almost 500 Canadians are diagnosed with cancer and more than 200 Canadians will die from cancer,” says Dr. Benjamin Neel, Director of The Campbell Family Cancer Research Institute at The Princess Margaret.

“While we celebrate the tremendous success of this year’s event, we still have much more to do to conquer cancer. Funds raised from this year’s event are being put to use to fund Personalized Cancer Medicine and the people who run the efforts at The Princess Margaret, and help improve and save lives every day,” Dr. Neel added.

Ride organizers introduced additional components this year including Gold Helmets to designate Riders who have participated in all five annual Rides since 2008, SUGOi black & white “polka-dot” jerseys for the first ten participants to reach $15K in fundraising and gold pins, which indicate cancer survivors. Survivors are also designated en route with a yellow flag affixed to their bike.

“I wore my Golden Helmet proudly, as it’s been a privilege to take part in The Ride for the past five years to make a personal difference in the battle to conquer cancer,” says Chinyere Eni from Toronto.

“As a child, I lost my leg to cancer, but I survived. I have taken part in The Ride for the past five years to fight for all those who are currently in their battle and the belief that one day, cancer will be conquered,” Eni added.

“Thank you to every Rider, Donor, Sponsor, Volunteer, Crew Member, Doctor, Researcher and every person who played a role to make our 5th annual Ride another record-breaking event. Registration for the 2013 even on Jun 8th & 9th is now open and we hope everyone will join us! For more information and to get registered now, go to www.conquercancer.ca or call 877.699.BIKE,” Alofs concluded.

“Last year, there were more than 177,000 new cancer cases diagnosed in Canada and 75,000 Canadians passed away from the disease. As one of the top five cancer research centres in the world, The Princess Margaret is on a mission to conquer cancer in our lifetime, and the $18.1 million raised from this year’s Enbridge Ride To Conquer Cancer is already being put to use funding Personalized Cancer Medicine, which is helping to improve and save lives every day,” Alofs added.

In its fifth record-breaking year, The Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer continues to be the largest cycling fundraiser in Canadian history, having raised over $80.2 million for The Princess Margaret alone, and $149.3 million for cancer institutes across Canada. The annual event draws tens of thousands of participants across the nation and brings together communities of survivors, cyclists and supporters who train and fundraise for months in order to participate in the annual Ride. This year’s event drew participants from seven countries, eight Canadian provinces and 19 U.S. states.

“I have taken part in the Ontario Ride since its inception in 2008, and I am truly honoured to be part of an event which brings thousands of people together to make drastic impacts in the fight to conquer cancer,” says Denise Dorfman from Toronto.

“While I’m riding every year, I am thinking of my sister who fought a brave six-year battle with cancer. I miss her and while I can’t bring her back, this event is my chance to honour her and all of those who have been touched by cancer,” Dorman added, who is already registered for the 2013 Ride.

Funds raised by The Ride support The Princess Margaret’s creation and implementation of Personalized Cancer Medicine, which detects cancers earlier, diagnoses cancers more precisely, targets treatments more specifically and provides comprehensive physical and emotional support.

Finally, we have over 150 highly skilled clinical scientists and over 1,000 people employed in our research initiatives. Dollars raised by The Ride help us support these teams, enabling breakthrough research to continue,” Dr. Irish added.

In 2011, “The Ride To Conquer Cancer” became known as “The Enbridge Ride To Conquer Cancer” when Enbridge became the National Title Sponsor.

“The Ride brings together a community of inspiring men and women who have been touched by this disease and are determined to put every ounce of their energy toward conquering cancer in our lifetimes,” says Guy Jarvis, President of Enbridge Gas Distribution and a member of the company’s 170-member team.

“Enbridge and its employees are humbled to contribute to the overwhelming efforts of cyclists, volunteers and donors in support of The Princess Margaret this weekend,” Jarvis added.

Alofs says sponsorship of all types is absolutely critical to any charitable initiative.

“The contributions from Enbridge and all of our sponsors enable more funds raised by The Ride to be put to use funding cancer-related programs at The Princess Margaret. We are beyond grateful to all our sponsors for their generous support,” Alofs added.

Moments before the start of The Ride, Alofs and event organizers addressed thousands of participants simultaneously in both Toronto and Niagara Falls, and shared the total number of participants and funds raised for this year. Audio and video from each location was simulcast at both venues.

Ride organizers also released the dates and opened registration for the 2013 event, to be held on June 8th & 9th.
