The Impact: the Mission is Clear: to Conquer Cancer
Your efforts in the Ride to Conquer will benefit the Queensland Institute of Medical Research (QIMR). Currently 1 in 2 men and 1 in 3 women will be diagnosed with cancer before the age of 85. The need for advanced treatments and preventions is great. That is why QIMR devotes half of its research to understanding the causes of cancer and developing better diagnostics of treatments. In other words your participation will accelerate the conquest of cancer.
We would like to generate as much interest as possible with club members. We have club members who have encountered sessions of cancer so the focus is even more appropriate.
You will need to register as an individual as a member of a team and each member is expected to raise $2500 which sounds a great deal, but if some folk can Conquer Cancer we can Conquer the Fund Raising expectations.
We need to run this by the executive and then have an evening of information sharing. We would like to make it one of our goals for 2011.
