Meet Ralph – loving husband, father of two beautiful girls, and one of my best friends for more than thirty years. He was also there for my family and me when we lost our father to cancer at the age of 50.
When he’s not spending quality time with his family or on the job as a construction foreman, Ralph hits the road as an avid cyclist.
Despite facing his own health challenges, including a struggle with diabetes that he has successfully kept under control for more than 15 years, Ralph has participated in The Enbridge® Ride to Conquer Cancer® (“The Ride”) a total of four times, raising more than $10,000 in support of cancer research.
In addition to making a donation and helping Ralph raise money for The Ride, my organization, The Talent Company, is partnering with Ralph to support his theme for this year; “Team I’ve Got Your Back”. The premise is that, when you make a donation of $50 or more on his behalf, we will arrange to have the name of your loved one printed on the back of his cycling jersey (shirt) on the day of The Ride.
More than 75% of Canadians have had a personal connection with cancer through their own diagnosis or that of a loved one1. We believe it would be a great tribute to have the names of our lost loved ones and those who have shown courage and survived, represented and riding alongside with Ralph on June 10th and 11th. Please click here to make your donation, so that together, we can help to finally putting an end to the terrible illness.
The Ride inspires cyclists to traverse more than 200 kilometers (124 miles) over a two-day weekend, and has impressively raised more than $155 million dollars for the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre since 2008. We’re proud to partner with Ralph in support of this worthy cause.
Thank you in advance,
Senior Partner, The Talent Company
