Retired SCDSB teacher Peter Stankiewicz has been training very hard in order to take part in the 2010 Ride to Conquer Cancer Bike Challenge which involves a 200 km trek from Toronto to Niagara Falls.

May 18, 2010 - Retired teacher Peter Stankiewicz is doing just that on June 12 &13th. He will be biking 200 km from Toronto to Niagara Falls in The Ride to Conquer Cancer. “This trek is nothing like the challenge to battle cancer," Stankiewicz says, “but through this ride I can do my part in this fight againstt a killer disease that has taken so many lives including those of many fellow teachers over the years as well as taking many teachers out of the classroom as they battle this disease.”

Training for the Physical Challenge

Peter is biking 30-50 km each day and occasionally rides 65 km plus. However it is the challenge of fundraising that is equally daunting. Peter needs to raise $2500 in donations before embarking on the Ride to Conquer Cancer. All proceeds will be going to The Princess Margaret which is one of the top 5 cancer research centres in the world. It is estimated that 1 out of every 4 Canadians will die from cancer and 40% of women and 45% of men in Canada will develop cancer in their lifetime. Those that wish to can help him to meet this challenge by contributing to the cause where the money will be used to help support critical cancer research. Donations may be placed at www.conquercancer.ca by clicking on donate now then typing in his name then click on the name when it appears which will take you to his home page. Receipts will be issued for donations of $10 or more.
