Local gym, Evolve Fitness has joined the fight against cancer and entered a team in this year’s Ride taking place on October 3, 2020. Evolve has recruited the largest team in Ride for Cancer’s history with over 150 Riders registered to their team. Leading this group as Team Captain is Michelle Mackintosh. Michelle works as a physiotherapist for children with cancer and sees the effects of this disease everyday on the job. Her connection to cancer became even stronger in the fall of 2019 when she found a lump in her breast just two days after competing in a marathon. This was the beginning of Michelle’s own cancer journey. Hear Michelle’s full story in the video below!

The Ride community is on a mission this year to raise $1-million net in 2020 and on September 10, every dollar donated will be matched up to $100,000 thanks to the generosity of Stu Rath and his family. This Match Day will be focused on raising funds by inspiring the general public to donate to the event or to support someone they know who is riding, and have their donation doubled, for one day only.
