Application to become a National Rider in 2012

Join us for the trip of a lifetime!

We are currently selecting national riders/ambassadors to cycle from Vancouver to Halifax in support of children and families across Canada battling childhood cancer.

Who should apply

We are searching for individuals willing to take on the responsibility to join us in our battle to beat childhood cancer. Applicants need to be prepared to make the commitment to do the training and fundraising required to be a Sears National Kids Cancer Ride national rider. The registration fee is $2,995 and the minimum fundraising is $25,000. 100% of the dollars you raise will go to fund research at the 17 pediatric facilities in each and every province across Canada. To date we have raised over $5 million and look to add over $1.5 million to that total in 2012.

The 2012 Sears National Kids Cancer ride will leave Vancouver on September 5 and arrive in Halifax on September 21. This year’s event has a new innovative format to give riders of different abilities the opportunity to join us as we again cross the country to spread our message of hope.

One group will ride distances of approximately 130kms/day, either riding the entire 17 day program or register to ride as part of a maximum seven person national team with each team member riding one or more of 6 sections of the route (Vancouver to Calgary, Calgary to Winnipeg, Winnipeg to Thunder Bay, Thunder Bay to Toronto, Toronto to Quebec City, Quebec City to Halifax)

The second group will participate in an event truly representative of the journey the children battling this disease must endure. Riding relay style this team will cover from 200 to 250kms/day and take on the challenge of their lives.

Each night and each morning the two teams will be together and will participate in a variety of heartfelt community events and visits to the childhood pediatric facilities across the country.

The maximum selected riders will be 21 for each of the two teams with riders being selected based on their ability to fundraise, be an ambassador in the fight against kids cancer and their ability to ride.

Once accepted, our team will assist all cyclists by offering a number of support programs around training, nutrition and fundraising. Here is what some of the riders from previous National Rides have to say...
