As a foundation, we have created a series of high quality, memorable, physically challenging, national and regional events that encourage active and healthy lifestyles and engage sponsors, participants, donors and volunteers. From cycling rides to team-building activities, we raise needed funding for worthy childhood cancer charities whose programs support children with cancer and their families.
Tour for Kids is an important, sustainable source of funding for the incredible childhood cancer camp organizations in Canada. Since 2004 Tour For Kids has raised and distributed more than $12 million to these amazing organizations. Tour For Kids has also assisted in establishing a camp at SickKids hospital, rejuvenated the aging infrastructure of several overnight camps and improved the delivery of service across all three camps. Since camp is free to those in need, Tour for Kids funding means children with cancer and their families can take a break from their stresses while enjoying a camp experience just like other kids.
The National Kids Cancer Ride is one of the biggest and most ambitious charity cycling events on behalf of childhood cancer in the world. Now in it’s 11th year the 2019 event will be an emotional and inspirational adventure beginning in Vancouver on September 4 and complete in Halifax 18 memorable days later on September 21, 2019. Riding in relay style, the selected national riders will each cycle approximately 150 km and 220kms per day joined along the way by thousands of other caring cyclists who will cycle shorter, “stage ride” distances in major cities across Canada.
At the start and end of each day they will participate in community events and visit many of Canada’s 17 pediatric oncology centres and hospitals where the cancer community will share inspiring stories of strength and hope with cyclists and the media. Together, our cyclists will raise millions of dollars on behalf of charities that improve the quality of life for children, and their families, living with and beyond cancer. Read More

This is Josh Nelson – a childhood cancer survivor. He knows about facing all the challenges of childhood cancer:
“I know first-hand how it feels to be a prisoner in the hospital and endure the surgeries and the endless needles and treatments. I know how it feels to lose my hair, throw up regularly and watch other kids around me earn their wings. I lost a part of my childhood that I will never get back. I know how it feels to look different and to be different. That’s something that I wouldn’t wish for any other kid to go through, and that is why I do what I do.”
