2019 Ride for Karen @ Markham District High School
Aug 25 all-day

About Ride for Karen

Started in 2002, the RIDE FOR KAREN is a yearly cycling event that is held as a tribute to the life and legacy of Karen Tobias and to raise money for charities that help people living with cancer, and those who care for them. In the last sixteen years the Ride for Karen has raised over $2,540,000, which was used to help build and furnish new cancer care facilities, provide much needed resources for cancer support centres and send kids with cancer to camp. As a cancer patient, Karen knew first hand that hospitals were not a very positive environment in which to spend a lot of time. Karen wanted to make a difference and was dedicated to improving the quality of life of cancer patients with one goal in mind – Improving Hope – which she felt was a critical component of cancer care. We as a family have created the Ride for Karen to continue her work in an effort to harness the positive power of hope. All the monies raised from the 2019 Ride for Karen will be used to send kids with cancer to camp. This year’s ride will feature three events, a 200km course, a 160km course, and a 100km course.
Event Details
Choose from three events:
  • 200KM Double Metric Century: In the Double Metric Century ride, cyclists will embark on a 200 km ride through the valleys and farmlands north of Toronto. The 200 km ride is a difficult undertaking even for a seasoned cyclist and acts as a suitable metaphor for the strength that Karen showed in her tireless battle with Breast Cancer.
  • 160KM Century Ride: In the Century Ride, cyclists will embark on a 160 km / 100 mile ride through the valleys and farmlands north of Toronto. While scenic, the 160 km ride is a difficult undertaking even for a seasoned cyclist and acts as a suitable metaphor for the strength that Karen showed in her tireless battle with Breast Cancer.
  • 100km Metric Century Ride: In the shortest of the courses, cyclists will embark on a 100 km ride through the valleys and farmlands north of Toronto. While shorter than the other rides, the 100 km ride will be a challenging undertaking for recreational riders and acts as a suitable metaphor for the strength that Karen showed in her tireless battle with Breast Cancer.
