2017 ENBRIDGE RIDE TO CONQUER CANCER - THE PHARMASCIENCE TEAM RANKS FIRST IN THE HEALTH AND EDUCATION CATEGORY WITH $62,132 RAISED TO ADVANCE CANCER RESEARCH


On July 8 and 9, the Pharmascience Team participated in the ninth edition of the Enbridge® Ride to Conquer Cancer benefiting the Segal Cancer Center at the Jewish General Hospital.

This year marked the seventh consecutive year during which twenty participants sported the Pharmascience colors to advance cancer research. The Pharmascience Team ranked first in the Health and Education category with $62,132 raised, which is a noteworthy feat considering that over 100 teams participated in this year’s ride.

We wish to recognize the participation of:

François Bujold, Stéphane Charland, Zarina D’Costa, Alejandro Flores Maso, Richard Garon, Francis Gaudreau, Boris Gorbatyuk, Jad Isber, Troy Keating, Julia Keshen, Kurt Koscher, Simon Lapierre, Martin Laperrière, Luc Lesage, Jessica Massé, Françoise Munger, Duc Nguyen, Valérie Pilon, Philippe St-Amour , Francis Timmons, Manon Thibodeau, Jessica Zeidan.

The Ride to Conquer Cancer is a fundraising event during which participants bike from Montreal to Quebec City over the span of two-day, totaling 230 kilometers. The event has garnered a spirited success for many years and rallies an entire community in support of one single cause: to raise funds to advance cancer research. This year, 1,100 participants and their peers collectively raised $4.1 million in benefit to the Segal Cancer Centre at the Jewish General Hospital.

For many years now, Pharmascience has been a proud sponsor of the Ride to Conquer Cancer. Given Pharmascience’s continued dedication to helping advance cancer research, we are pleased to announce our intention to renew the experience in 2018 during the 10th edition of the Enbridge® Ride to Conquer Cancer.

Pharmascience has a strong commitment to cancer research, with the Goodman Cancer Research Center, a recognized world-class research center that contributes to innovative developments in the treatment and ultimately the cure for cancer.
