Why I’m Riding in the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer

Too many people I love have been affected by cancer, this disease  is terrible, it must be stopped at all costs.

I have thought this for several years, but I never knew what I could do to help. This year I’m trying something new. My friends and I are going to ride in the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer(TM) 200KM bike ride. Its a hugely successful fundraiser that benefits the Princess Margaret Teaching Hospital in Toronto.

I understand that cancer cannot be beaten with $1000 or even a couple million, its is an advanced disease that has many forms. However, I do know that the money you donate will also be applied to improving patient care, and from what I’m told, Princess Margaret has EXCELLENT patient care.

They money helps patients, putting this in more realistic terms: the money you donate will allow grandfathers and grandmothers to play with their grandchildren a little longer.

Please help me by donating anything you think is reasonable. If you can’t, thats not a problem, all I ask is you forward my request to 5 different people you know.

Breaking in the blog

Finally, the blog’s first stage is complete. I’ve finally got WordPress working with my header, you may be asking: “Why did it take so long?”. Well, honesty is a great policy and I put a nice big <!— —>  in my styles.css file. As my security professor says: “Oops”.

So, Nick, why write this blog? I want improve on my writing and I also want to express my ideas. First and foremost this blog will be an experiment. I’ve tried to do a little bit of Parkour, Kill my dependency on T.V for enjoyment, Lucid Dreaming and small application design and I want this blog to be a documentation source for my successes and errors.

Thats it for now I think.
