Ride to CONQUER CANCER - An annual Event

The Ontario Annual Ride to Conquer Cancer is an epic cycling event to raise money benefiting Princess Margaret Hospital for cancer research. Our team --- "IBM-OCI-Roche Integrative Discovery Team" --- raised over $270K in 2008-2013.

Our annual Team Ian ride from Kingston to Montreal is growing steadily. In 2016 we raised almost $100,000 and crossed an important milestone both in fundraising and research. Please consider joining or supporting "Team Ian" and ride with us in August 2017 from Kingston to Montreal (or maybe even Toronto-Kingston-Montreal). This ride is in memory of one of the cancer informatics students - Ian Lawson Van Toch.
