The Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer announced 1,222 riders helped raise $4.4 million for the Jewish General Hospital, as the eighth annual Ride commenced in Montreal on Saturday.

"The Ride brings people together to share an epic journey, and we continue to feel inspired by our riders, sponsors, donors, crew members and volunteers, who have enabled the eighth annual Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer to be an overwhelming success," said Myer Bick, President and CEO of the Jewish General Hospital Foundation.

"Over the last year, an estimated 50,100 new cancer cases were diagnosed in Quebec, and across the country, over 78,000 Canadians died of the disease. Thanks to funds raised through the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer, our world-leading doctors, researchers and scientists will continue to develop new treatments along with care and prevention programs for all patients. These dollars are critical for the Jewish General Hospital's Segal Cancer Centre to continue implementing a focused and comprehensive approach to fighting cancer through a combination of medical treatment, patient care, family support and scientific research. We are very grateful to those who support our mission to advance health care and medical research for the people of Quebec," Bick added.

In eight years, The Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer raised over $46 million for cancer programs at the Jewish General Hospital and its partners. The annual event draws thousands of participants and brings together communities of cancer survivors, cyclists and supporters who train and fundraise in order to participate in the two-day, 200+ km ride from Montreal to Quebec City.

"My life changed significantly in 2013 when I was diagnosed with sarcoma on my right leg," said Serge Caron, a three-time participant from Montreal.

"Despite undergoing surgery to remove the tumour, along with a sizable portion of my calf muscle, I have participated in the Ride to Conquer Cancer since my recovery to celebrate my victory. I am very grateful for all the doctors, radiotherapy technicians and nurses who were so compassionate and caring during my treatment. By raising funds to support vital cancer research at the Jewish General Hospital, I hope to have a positive impact on others who are fighting the disease," Caron added.

"Two out of five Canadians are expected to develop cancer in their lifetime. It is humbling to see the thousands of people coming together to give back to the Jewish General Hospital. Our community looks forward to The Ride every year and it is our hope that even more people will join us in 2017," Dodd added.
