TEAM JOANNE P/B KINDHUMAN BICYCLES // THE RIDE TO CONQUER CANCER // TORONTO TO NIAGARA FALLS // JUNE 9-10, 2018
We formally invite you and your friends to join the KindHuman Bicycles family alongside Team Joanne p/b KindHuman Bicycles for the Ride to Conquer Cancer (RTCC). Now in it's 11th year, on June 9-10, 2018 we will be riding from Toronto to Niagara Falls in support of cancer research and the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre - one of the top cancer research centres in the world!
A LITTLE HISTORY ABOUT OUR TEAM
Team Joanne was started by fellow #KindRider, Warren Blatt in honour of his wife, Joanne. We sadly lost Joanne after her tough fight against melanoma. Warren and all of us at at KindHuman are doing all we can to help keep her fight going.
Our commitment to this team hits home on many levels. First of all, Warren has been a devout supporter of KH since we started this company. Warren and Joanne have had our back since day one. Now it’s our turn to give back them up. Furthermore, melanoma is something of a shared struggle. Co-founder, Gavin, sadly lost his grandmother and uncle to melanoma. A few weeks before his 19th birthday, Gavin was diagnosed. Co-founder, Adam, has had his own scares with malignant melanoma - but thanks to early detection both our founders are here today to ride for those who weren’t so fortunate. This team is bigger than us - this team was founded with hope and a commitment that no person should ever have to hear the words, “you have cancer.”
The funds raised by Team Joanne p/b KindHuman Bicycles directly fund cancer research needed to fight this fight - and win.
ABOUT OUR LOGO
Inspired by Joanne and designed by KH Co-founder, Adam, the circle represents a bond and the story of life. You’ll notice there are two circles representing our first life and a second chance at life after cancer.
