This year, The Cancervive Cycle Tour charity ride, raised $167,458 for Wellspring!  

In the past 11 years, The Cancervive Foundation of Alberta has raised over 2.2 Million for Wellspring.  Wellspring is a non-profit organization that offers free support programs to those affected by cancer.  One hundred percent (100%) of the proceeds raised by Cancervive go directly to Wellspring Calgary and Wellspring Edmonton.  

One third of our cyclists this year are cancer survivors!  Our Cancervive community of cyclists and volunteers continue to partake in this ride as we believe no one should face Cancer alone.  We offer our continued support to the Wellspring staff and programs, as we have seen the benefits to our loved ones and their caregivers who are affected by Cancer.

Thirty five determined cyclists dedicated 6 days, from September 12-17, to cycle through our beautiful, scenic Rocky Mountain range  from High River, Longview, Kananaski, Banff National Park, Num-Ti-Jih Lodge, Rocky Mountain House,  Water Valley, Cochrane and back to Calgary.   The ride was supported by 23 very dedicated volunteers who join in the entire 620kms an more to ensure our riders were safe and had a memorable, fun ride.

And next year, we will do this again.   Stay tuned for details on the route, dates, and other details coming out this fall.
