All 1,803 cyclists departed Canada Olympic Park in Calgary, Alberta at 7:00 am MST as scheduled. The cyclists were enroute to Sundre, Alberta when the smoke from the B.C. wildfires became increasingly worse. Ride officials decided to stop the ride at 11:00 a.m. MST for the safety and health of all cyclists and arranged transportation for all cyclists and their bikes back to Calgary. Even though the Ride was not completed by the cyclists, this year's fundraising was an impressive $8.12 million, the largest amount in the Alberta Ride's history. Equally as impressive is Jarrid's Team fundraising that was $41,450, an increase of 7% from last year, the Team also placed 4th in total donations raised and second place in average donations raised per rider. This is an outstanding accomplishment!!  


Everyone on Jarrid's Team expresses utmost gratitude to everyone who donated to the individual team members and the team. Thank you and "Together We "Pay It Forward" as we work on finding a cure for cancer!

Jarrid Rich is still with his team in spirit. His unwavering passion to find a cure for orphan cancers has continued to inspire Jarrid's Teamto carry the gauntlet, raise funds, and participate in the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer. All proceeds of the ride go to support the Alberta Cancer Foundation.


Jarrid was a WARRIOR and HERO in his personal fight against this hideous disease and Together We Pay it Forward to help others. During 2011 and 2012, the two years that Jarrid led his team in the Ride, they raised over $60,000 for cancer research. After Jarrid's passing on March 7, 2013, his team rose to the 2013 Ride's challenge and raised close to $30,000 for the cure. For the 2014 Ride, Jarrid's Team has again raised over $30,000. In 2015, Jarrid's Team exceeded their fundraising goal and raised close to $21,000.


We are the faces of cancer as everyone either has been or will be affected in some way by this horrible disease. We know someone who has or had cancer - a loved one, a relative, a friend, a co-worker, a friend of a friend. Cancer touches us all.


Jarrid's Team will ride again in the 2016 Ride, fulfilling Jarrid's mission inTogether We Pay it Forward, and will continue to ride until cancer is no more.


Just like Jarrid, YOU can be a WARRIOR and HERO, too. Join us in the battle to find a cure and help support those who are also in the fight along with their families and friends. Be a part of the cancer free movement!
