Why Participate?

Riders, volunteers and crew meet and connect with hundreds of families impacted by childhood cancer at various rest stops and hospitals across the country.  Together we inspire hope, learn about the amazing work by cancer professionals, enjoy the warmth and comfort offered by the entire Canadian community, fall in love with the towns and cities we visit and most importantly we are encouraged and invigorated by the families and children we meet along the way.  

One mission of the National Kids Cancer Ride is to raise meaningful research dollars to make a significant, lasting impact on the survival rate, and quality of life of kids, living with and beyond cancer.
