When we started our journey we had a clear goal in mind „raise a minimum of $500,000 for two cancer charities by cycling from Vancouver to Halifax in 10 days or less. We are in clear sight of achieving our cycling goal; we need your help in our fundraising goal. You can help by donating on-line or via cheque and mailing to:

Coast to Coast Against Cancer
C/O 1525 Royal Oaks Road
Mississauga, Ontario

Cheques should be made payable directly to one of the two charities our team is supporting (Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation or Lance Armstrong Foundation)

Thanks for make this a memorable event; look for rider comments and a summary of our finishing event tomorrow!!

On June 14, a team of six cyclists departed Vancouver, B.C. and are riding 24 hours per day to arrive in Halifax, N.S. just 10 days later; a distance of 7200km (4500 mi.). Rotating shifts, each cyclist is pushed to the limit pedaling 12-15 hours across 360 km (225 mi.) per day.

Coast-to-Coast Against Cancer was founded by Jeff Rushton in 2002 to commemorate his father's successful battle against cancer. An avid cyclist, Jeff established this annual cycling event as a means to raise awareness and funding for charities intent on supporting individuals and families dealing with this devastating disease.

In January 2002, Jeff Rushton and his friend Kevin Wallace each rode 3200 miles (5100 km), coast to coast, from California to Florida in just 24 days raising over $175,000 for two cancer charities. View last year's website.
