Hi Billiardparty Fans,

I'll be participating in a two-day major cycling event called The Ride to Conquer Cancer presented by Silver Wheaton benefiting BC Cancer Foundation. Part of this adventure is shamelessly contacting people I know, people that I know but have not seen for a while, people that don't remember me, people that I have heard of but have never heard of me, etc. You get the picture.

I'll be cycling through the scenic Pacific Northwest with thousands of other Riders. All the proceeds will go to BC Cancer Foundation to support cancer research, treatment, and services. BC Cancer Foundation is a leading comprehensive institution devoted to cancer research and care, and the work they're doing is cutting-edge.

I've agreed to raise a minimum amount to allow me to participate. So here's where you come in, because I need your help to do that. Could you please consider making a tax deductable donation? Use the link at the bottom of this email to go visit my webpage, and please take the time to support me.

When I say "heartbreaking," here's what I mean: according to the Canadian Cancer Statistics, 171,000 new cases of cancer and 75,300 deaths from cancer occurred in 2009. The information also shows that over 45% of men and 40% of women will develop cancer in their lifetime and 1 in all 4 Canadians will die of cancer. That's why I'm riding. To do something BIG about cancer. I hope that you'll share this incredible adventure with me by supporting me in my fundraising efforts.

Thank you in advance for your generosity!
