The Musket Transport Ltd. contributed to this year’s Enbridge Ride® to Conquer Cancer®, by sponsoring our Safety and Compliance Officer, Daryn Rabb’s team “The Chemo Crushers.”

“On June 9th and 10th I participated in the Ride to Conquer Cancer for the second year in a row. I joined over 4500 amazing people in riding 220km over the two days. Our team, Chemo Crushers, raised over $27,000 towards this great cause. I was originally approached by a couple of my friends who planned to do the ride and asked if I would like to participate. I agreed despite the daunting distance. It has been a great experience both years and it feels pretty good to cross that finish line in Niagara and know you have helped this worthy cause. I am already signed up to go again in 2019. Hopefully, we can see an end to cancer in our lifetime.

I will be doing the ride again next year so if you missed the chance to contribute this year, please contribute to my 2019 ride. Click here to donate now.

The Ride® to Conquer Cancer® is organized each year by the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation. The funds collected fuel innovation and help us improve the standards of care not only for those in Ontario, but for all those afflicted with cancer around the world. This year’s 200+ kilometer Ride raised a massive $18.3 million making the total collected over 11 years of this event to $194 million. A truly impressive amount!

This is what Micheal Burns, President & CEO of the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation had to say about the event:

“A big thank you to our donors, volunteers, crew members and to all participants, who embarked on the two-day, 200+ kilometer journey. We continue to Ride for those we have lost to cancer, those who are battling and those who have been touched by the disease.

There were a number of memorable moments from the ride, which included but not was limited to, a plane flying over the Toronto opening ceremony announcing the incredible $18.3 million raised, participant David Marchione winning the AirSprint NYC private jet experience, the band Wintersleep performing at camp and participant Nicholas Fidei raising an individual fundraising record of $311,000. We also heard some incredible stories, including the story from cancer survivor, Lauren Craig.”
