Why I Ride And Who I Ride For…

I am participating in 2018 Tour de Rock to support the mission of the Canadian Cancer Society.

My name is Greg Stubbs, I’ve been a paramedic with BC ambulance service for over 14 years. With all the people I have helped throughout my career, the Tour de Rock is an opportunity to make even more of a impact and a difference to individuals and families dealing with childhood cancer.

People ask why I am participating in Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock. I don’t have a cancer surviving story, my children are healthy and I take advantage of that daily, because I know it can change in a heartbeat. I, like many others have been on the losing side of cancer. I’ve lost my Father, Grandmother, and Grandfather to cancer. I’ve sat on the sidelines too long, so I decided it was about time I joined the fight. Since I’m healthy now, it’s my chance to make a difference in childhood cancer and research. Through my career as a paramedic, I’ve seen firsthand what changes when your child gets sick, nothing else matters but their health. So, if I can help just a little bit to make that easier for a family, it will be worth it.

So, why am I riding and fundraising for the Canadian Cancer Society and the Tour de Rock? I ride so other families can focus on what really matters.

The money raised from this event helps fund leading-edge cancer research that is improving cancer treatments, preventing cancer and saving lives; provide reliable and up-to-date information on cancer, risk reduction and treatment; offer vital community-based support services for people living with cancer and their families; and advocate for healthy public policies.

Please pledge me and help me reach my fundraising goal! Every pledge takes us one step further in the fight against cancer. Online pledging is secure and it saves the Canadian Cancer Society money by reducing administrative costs.

Thanks for your support!

If we all work together, we can end childhood cancer.
