About my fundraiser

John Chilver, the President and CEO of Cellex-C International Inc. and his friend Geoff Stark, a retired police officer, are going to be riding the iconic climbs of the Tour defence in the French Alps and Pyrenees in aid of the Canadian Cancer Society. John Chilver, the President and CEO of Cellex-C International Inc. and his friend Geoff Stark, a retired police officer, are going to be riding the iconic climbs of the Tour de France in the French Alps and Pyrenees in aid of the  Institut Curie.

In many hospitals around the world, whenever a cancer patient successfully completes a course of chemo, he or she rings a bell, and that's what John and Geoff are planning to do in their honour at the top of every col they climb.

Fighting cancer also means a lot to John and Geoff on a personal level. John's sister, the founder of Cellex-C International, passed away three years ago from a rare form of intestinal cancer, followed a few months later by his father who died from lung cancer after decades of smoking. Geoff's dad was also killed by lung cancer, again, from that most lethal pastime.

Their ride is for everyone who has battled cancer, or is currently in that fight.

Let's conquer this terrible disease. For good. Let's ring that bell. For the last time.
