    Ride The Rideau is a 100km bicycle ride from Ottawa to Merrickville and is a fundraiser for the Ottawa Hospital's ongoing cancer research.

    Last year I had the privilege of taking part in the 2010 inaugural "Ride the Rideau", it was an emotional ride for me as my father succumbed to cancer 6 days before the day of the ride. My mother also died of cancer some 16 years ago so I rode to honour their memory. I had never ridden 100km before and it was a challenge but I'm looking forward to the 2011 ride and hope to make a much better time this year. A big thank you to all of you who generously sponsored me last year and to those opening their wallets again to support cancer research.

    If you'd like to sponsor me for the ride (no donation is too big or too small) please click on this link Sorry.

    The Ottawa Hospital Foundation is a registered charity and tax receipts will be issued.
