In the early morning hours of June 20, 2021 our Sooke Bike Club Vice President, Glen Polson, will start his 'Everesting' attempt to mountain bike up the Bear Mountain Parkway and down Coronacation and Skirt Ridge. On this route, he will climb the height of Everest (8,848m) over a distance of 165 km’s.
The purpose of the ride is to proudly support the Canadian Cancer Society’s Cops for Cancer Tour de Rock. Tour de Rock is a two-week bicycle journey in which a team of first responders ride over 1,000 kilometres from the north end of Vancouver Island to the south, to raise awareness and money to fight childhood cancer, and fund support services for children and families affected by cancer.
A cancer diagnosis doesn’t yield to a global pandemic, and unfortunately, we are all affected by cancer at one time throughout our lives. It is as important as ever to try to eradicate this devastating disease.
Since 2013, Glen has been intimately involved with Tour de Rock as a member of their medical team, team trainer, and also as a team rider in 2017 and 2020. To date, Glen has personally raised over $30,000 to support the Canadian Cancer Society.
In order to make this event as successful as possible, we are asking you to donate to this worthy cause. For every donation made, your name will be entered into a draw to win prizes from our supporting sponsors.
