If you’re looking to donate to a great cause while applauding a feat of strength, now is the time to pledge Nicholas Petroff in his Ride to Conquer Cancer!

On August 29th-30th, Nicholas will be cycling from Vancouver to Redmond, Washington, sporting a vibrant Save Your Skin jersey! This will be the first year that Nicholas cycles the entire 200+ km route, and he is excited to cycle the beautiful West Coast in support of the BC Cancer Foundation.

When I asked what inspired him to register for The Ride to Conquer Cancer, Nicholas told me, “I love cycling and I love people, but I don’t love cancer”. Like many of us, Nicholas has several people that he could be riding in the name of, and this list includes Kathy Barnard, Founder of Save Your Skin. Everyone has a reason to participate in The Ride to Conquer Cancer, and Nicholas is hoping to find more riders to sport the Save Your Skin jersey next year, making the joke that his team name is “Whose on Team Save Your Skin?” and urging cyclists to “get their bikes dusted and sign up!”.

Even if you aren’t able to ride, Nicholas urges everyone who can to get involved in The Ride to Conquer Cancer, as a rider, volunteer, or a cheerleader along the route.

It’s not too late to participate this year- help Nicholas reach his fundraising goal of $4, 000! Click here to make a donation online!
