S6E30:NB Ride Against Cancer growing with foundation partnership, downtown Ride Day

Less than a decade ago, a group of nine cyclists set out with a goal – to bike 500 kilometres around New Brunswick and raise awareness and fund for cancer patients. In 2011, another group of cyclists began the Tour of Hope, with a similar goal. Today, these events have merged under the banner of the NB Ride Against Cancer, a joint fundraiser by the CHU Dumont Foundation and The Friends of the Moncton Hospital.

Cancer impacts the lives of every Canadian, directly or indirectly – with nearly two in five people expected to develop cancer during their lifetime. Money raised through the NB Ride Against Cancer will go towards the creation of a Cancer Support Program that will help people living with cancer, their caregivers, and their families.

Foundation leaders Gilles Allain and Katherine Robertson join Jenna & Tosh to talk about the 2024 ride (including the NEW Riverfront trail portion scheduled for June 15), the long term goals of the event, and their vision for collaboration.

The Jenna & Tosh Show is a co-production of Pickle Planet Moncton and The Podcast Hub, and is recorded & aired by Rogers TV New Brunswick. Follow us for a new episodes each Monday!
