A Record-Breaking Ride


Today Sylvia and I travelled to Calgary to join my parents in welcoming my brother Sean over the finish line of the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer. Sean raised over $2800 for his 200 km ride, and thus helped participate in the largest fundraiser ever in Alberta - $7.3 million in new funding for the fight against cancer.

We're all very proud of Sean. It's also a pleasure to report that Mom's cancer treatment has gone very well, and that the doctors tell her that there's a nearly 95% chance that the cancer won't come back within the next 30 years. Pretty good odds!

Oh, and it was closer to 220 km. ; )

Thanks to all of Earl's friends who donated!

Sean, you did damned good! You should be very proud of what you achieved. With all that Spandex, I bet you now have a taste of how Superman must feel after a job well done.
