No Retreat, No Surrender June 13th, 2015 - Southside Harbour Grace NFLD

No Retreat2015.1The weather once again did not cooperate but we rode  "In Memory and In Honour". 70 bikes participated this year and a total of $10,000.00 was raised for our local cancer clinic's "patient and family" support fund.

 

All funds go to help those that are battling cancer.

No Retreat2015.2We raised this money from the ride and dance as well as a 50/50 draw that we sold tickets on since February.

The winner was drawn by “Miss Teen” Trinity -Conception.

 

 

 

A short while before the ride start I received a phone call telling me of a woman who was only days or maybe even hours away from the end of her battle with cancer.

No Retreat2015.3We were asked to do a drive by so she, like so many others would know that we were riding in honour of her battle. She and her husband were owners of an RV Park and it was there she loved to be to spend her last days surrounded by family and friends. We made adjustments of our timings and made our way through the park we were told after that she was very emotional of our endeavor.  This morning I received another call telling me she lost her battle at 1:00 am on the 17th.

On June 13th, I rode in memory of my wife June all of the other riders rode in memory of their friends and loved ones who have lost their battle but together we all rode in honour of the battle so many are waging.

 

 

 

 

That is what this ride is all about. June and I know what it means to have a group of bikers riding in her honour, the feeling is indescribable.

Plans are already in place for next years ride. Venues have been booked, as has the music, and currently in we are in the planning stages for another 50/50 draw. Hoping to coordinate with the Annual AGM of CAV.

No Retreat2015.4The LYS Unit were on board last 5 years and its members dedicated countless time and effort to making this such a success.

The greatest success being; we have done something to help alleviate some of the stress and emotion that goes with a cancer diagnosis.

Until a cure is found and accessible to all, from whatever lies ahead, there must be  "No Retreat and No Surrender".

On June 11th, 2016 whoever you are, wherever you are and whatever you ride; Ride for No Retreat No Surrender.
