Ride to Conquer Cancer – 123Dentist Participates

Two 123Dentist offices have been instrumental in raising money for cancer research by participating in the Ride to Conquer Cancer.

Wesbrook Village Dental and Downtown Dental have each fielded riders in the 2-day event that sees riders bike over 200 kilometres to raise money for cancer research.

Better Outcomes 2

The “Better Outcomes 2” team was founded 7 years ago and has participated each year since. In 2017, the team raised over $85,000.

Although not widely known, oral cancer affects over 300,00- Canadians each year. Our team is keen to welcome new riders, donors, and sponsors each year. To learn more about the Better Outcomes 2 team please visit their Facebook page.

The 2018 ride will be their seventh year in the ride and over those years have raised over ninety thousand dollars. Cancer affected many family members, colleagues, and friends of theirs over the years and it is for them that they continue the fight. They are hoping to break through the $100,00 fundraising mark this year.

In order to pay tribute to the actor Adam West who passed away from cancer in 2017, our team rode as Batman this year. Mr. West played Batman on U.S. television in the 1960s. The bat themed outfits proved to be such a hit we are planning on repeating it again for the 2018 ride.

B.C. Ride to Conquer Cancer

The 2018 ride will be the tenth year of the B.C. Ride to Conquer Cancer and the first time it will stay 100% in Canada. The ride itself involves cycling well over 200 kilometres over two days. The Ride to Conquer Cancer has united an unparalleled community of powerful men and women across Canada, who are committed to conquering cancer in our lifetime.
