|Sid Dickinson of Thornbury along with several other area residents, have committed to conquering cancer by participating in The Ride to Conquer Cancer® benefiting The Princess Margaret Hospital. He will join thousands of other men and women in a history-making ride on June 21-22, 2008. Sid and his Team “Take the HAYES Out of Cancer” will take part in a two-day ride of over 200 kilometres from Toronto to Niagara Falls with a night of camping in Hamilton. Riders will support breakthrough research and the discovery of new cancer therapies at The Princess Margaret.|
Dickinson and his Team were inspired to take on this challenge because of their friend Hayes Jackson, a Collingwood resident who was recently diagnosed with Brain Cancer. “I have watched how Hayes has fought the fight of his life with amazing courage and with grace, humour and compassion. He has inspired me to remember the important things in life - family, friends and sharing with others.”
The Team is also riding for another courageous friend, John Band, a Collingwood Real Estate agent, who has been battling cancer for several years now and who is again, being put to the test by this terrible disease. Together, with your help, we want to show both these courageous men and all the others that Princess Margaret helps, that we're behind them!!
