Local rides to conquer cancer

Clarendon resident Mike Guitard participated in Enbridge's Ride to Conquer Cancer over the weekend, pedaling 230 km and raising $3,850 for the Sir Mortimer B. Davis Jewish General Hospital in Montreal. Guitard is already signed up for the 2019 ride, and is open to teaming up with other locals.

Last weekend, a Clarendon man pedaled over 200 kilometres to raise money for cancer research, riding in an annual event that brought in millions of dollars.
Mike Guitard explained that he signed up for Enbridge's Ride to Conquer Cancer in the aftermath of losing his grandmother to the disease over the holidays.
“I joined because my grandmother passed at Christmas time of cancer, and I thought that I should do something,” he said, adding that funds raised from the Montreal to Quebec City trek would go towards the Sir Mortimer B. Davis Jewish General Hospital in Montreal. “There was no Relay for Life in Shawville this year, so I thought I'd try and raise some money for cancer research.”
