Ride2Survive makes Summer Giving Easy Amazing Volunteers and Students Participate in Ride2Survives 50/50 Event to Raise $29, 758
When it comes to creating a culture of caring and summer giving in North Delta/Surrey, Ride2Survive proactively engages everyone in maintaining a spirit of generosity. On Friday June 15th, 2018, Graham Street, Richard Gestle, and Siobhan Coates went up the sky lift and spent 50 hours, 50 feet in the air on a crane to raise money with Ride2Survive for the Canadian Cancer Society, taking place at the Scottsdale Centre in Delta.
This event was designed by the Ride2Survive organization and started by Kerry and Vicki Kunzli, from North Delta, which is devoted to generating donations for the Canadian Cancer Society to assist in Brain cancer, Ovarian Cancer, Pancreatic Cancer, Pediatric Cancers and other hared cancers that need more research. Ride2Survive is a non-profit, fully volunteer organization based here in British Columbia, and from Delta, which offers cycling events as its primary source of fundraising. So far, they have raised over $500 000 for the 2015 calendar year, with fully 100% of these donations going towards cancer research.
The brave participants in the air stayed up for the full 50 hours, as encouragement to those below to donate to the cause. On the ground, with our directors coordinating with Alison Gestle, Aileen Maas, Amarjit Dhadwar, and Ryan Beaumont, our amazing volunteers and students helped participate, collecting funds, coordinating traffic flow into the event, decorating the area, entertaining the group with dancing and even utilizing their public speaking skills, communicating in Punjabi to inform local residents and shoppers of the event to encourage donations.
Graham Street, a cancer survivor, who helped organize the event, reflected on why he chose to lend a hand: "The purpose of the event was to help continue the fight against cancer. Cancer is a growing concern, and awareness, precautions and funds are needed to treat or prevent it. The key to these possibilities lies in our communities' ability to fund the best and most innovative research efforts."
"Our sincere hope is to protect and help our community cope. I myself am a cancer survivor. We need to be engaged in an arduous process of healing that is collaborative, enhancing, inclusive, practical, pro-active and responsible," said Richard Gestle, an event organizer and a team riding captain.
The celebration atmosphere at the Payal Business Center was "over the top"--to see the community come out together to welcome us and our efforts. It demonstrated the hope that Ride2Survive provides to those suffering and reveals the support for all those involved in battling the disease. It also allows our future generations to know that they are not alone in fighting against cancer.
"Looking at cancer in a more positive light, improved treatments with prevention strategies are helping Canadians live longer because of improvements in surgical techniques and aggression, chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Thanks to research, Canadians have been able to dramatically improve the 5-year survival rate from 25% in 1947 to over 60% today. Improved treatments with prevention strategies are helping Canadians live longer. We are very gratified for the depth and breadth of community sponsorship and support. We thank Save-on-Foods, local businesses and patrons for helping us," said Siobhan Coates.
"No matter how young or old, everyone benefits by participating in the Ride2Survive community service fundraiser. We have the opportunity to help children and youth become great citizens in hopes that they will be compassionate people who are innovative, organized and responsible. Through our participation with community leaders, educators and parents, we can help them develop internal strengths and become part of a new generation of young people prepared to lead others, take on responsibility, and handle tomorrow's health and social challenges," says Suzanne Hayat, a volunteer coordinator of the Amazing Tutors' Children's Foundation.
The event concluded with the raising of $25,758 to go towards cancer research funded by the Canadian Cancer Society. In 2015, we raised $25,000 and in 2016, we raised $29,500. We feel extremely blessed to have been given the opportunity by Ride2Survive to engage with the community in such an important way, and to get our students out and volunteering to aid research that will positively impact so many lives. Here at Amazing Tutors and our foundation, we believe that providing our students with positive and community based volunteer activities is an essential part of their development into responsible and capable citizens whom we hope will continue to impact their communities throughout their lives.
We wish the Ride2Survive team all the best as they ride from Kelowna climbing up the Coquihalla Highway and tracing through the Cascade Mountains. Cyclists will pedal from 3:30 am, making their way, with stops along the way, to 7919 Scott Road in North Delta at about 10:45 pm on Saturday June 18, 2018. This ride comprises a gruelling and a challenging physical and emotional journey, pointing out that those who battle cancer have a physical and emotional fight far greater than anything we could imagine. Upon arriving back to Delta, B.C., they would have pedaled 400 km and climbed 13,000 feet in one day, so that all of us will benefit from their foresight and perseverance.

To Amazing Tutors Children's Foundation
"On behalf of the 50/50 Hand on Back committee and the Ride2Survive, we'd like to thank you and your group of student volunteers and their parents who helped and supported the 50/50 Pole sit.
Seeing the community, volunteers and your group of students come out to help raise the donations was a huge help and they were so full of energy, fun, and assisted with directing traffic flow into the event, collecting donations, decorating the area, entertained the group with dancing, utilizing their public speaking skills, and communicating in Punjabi to inform local residents and shoppers of the event to encourage donations. They gave their best, and were just there to assist in anyway they could.
Thank you for sponsoring and helping us raise the awareness for our event, and the donations for Brain Cancer Research."

A Kind Word from our Team
"At Amazing Tutors Children's Foundation, we believe in engaging youths in community programs that build character, increase self-esteem and, develop life skills. Social development programs such as these provide both children and teens with positive peer interactions, opportunities to develop problem-solving skills, and positive adult support, which help reduce the risk factors associated with young offenders. Although organized sports and development programs are not the complete solution to stopping negative behaviors, they can, however, contribute to their reduction by giving young people a positive identity, feelings of empowerment and by helping youth acquire leadership, teamwork, and self-governance skills under adult supervision."

Our Amazing Tutors Children's Foundation is happy to have participated in this incredible fundraiser by helping Ride2Survive, which is the Canadian Cancer Society's largest independent fundraising event. Since 2005, they have raised over $7 000 000. The purpose of this event is to help continue the fight against cancer, which requires an enormous amount of money.
There are more than 200 types of cancer that can affect more than 60 organs, and according to a report by the Canadian Cancer Society, the annual number of new cancer diagnoses in Canada will increase by 40 per cent by 2030. This indicates that cancer is a growing cause of concern, and awareness, precautions and funds are needed to treat or prevent it. The key to these possibilities lies in our ability to fund the best and most innovative research efforts in our country. Our foundation supports their foresight, leadership and perseverance.
We welcome your inquires.
