Cancer ride party Feb 21

Ever consider a bike ride from Toronto to Niagara Falls? How about raising $2,500 for cancer research? How about both? 

Jason Thompson of Fergus is doing just that – again.  He is participating in the second an­nual Ride to Conquer Cancer, which benefits Prin­cess Margaret Hospital.

On June 12 to 14, Thomp­son will embark on a two-day cycle trip of over 200km through South­ern Ontario from Toronto to Niagara Falls. Riders must raise at least $2,500 – all the proceeds going to the hospital to support cancer re­search.

His most significant fund­raising event is the second annual Party to Conquer Can­cer at the Fergus Legion on Feb. 20. All proceeds go to the Princess Margaret Hospital. It runs 8pm to 1am.  Tickets  are $10 – available at Cherry Hill Entertainment in the Fergus Market Place.  Thompson can also sell them from kajy@­sym­­patico.­ca or by calling 519-787-7680.

“The Legion will be providing the bar and I’ve arranged for a great and danceable band – Killin’ Time – to play for the night,” he said.  To support the cause, visit the website at www.conquer­ and en­ter his participant ID number 530795-7, or call 416-815-RIDE (7433).
