One of H2H’s board members, Albert (& his wife Jolaine!), are participating in the Ride to Survive – a fundraiser for cancer research… a 400 km ride from Kelowna to Delta in 1 day!

I just watched the promotional video and was so touched by it that I wanted to share it with you.

Part 1:

Part 2:

Cancer is something that touches us all… no matter what country we live in.  I have friends & family, both in Canada & Haiti, that have been affected by it.  The reason for the ride is powerful in itself but I was drawn to the conviction the riders have to donate their time & resources to make sure ALL of the donated money goes directly to cancer research.  It’s easy to say we’d like to support a organization that has a low admin fee but being willing to make that happen is something else.

Albert & Jolaine – I have seen you make personal sacrifices over & over because of your love for your friends in Haiti and you are doing the same in this Ride.  The way you live your lives is inspiring to me & Renel and we are very proud to call you friends :)
