18th Annual Ride for Breast Cancer Screening
Sunday, September 19, 2021
The 18th Annual Ride for Breast Cancer Screening is taking place on Sunday, September 19, 2021! This annual event has raised more than $250,000 since its inception in 2004. These funds have supported the advancement of breast cancer screening technology and brought crucial awareness of the importance of early breast screening and cancer prevention in Saskatchewan.
Beginning and ending at Prairie Harley-Davidson, riders take the scenic route through the Qu’Appelle Valley around Katepwa Lake. There will be a small wind-up after the ride with prize give-a-ways and the announcement of how much was raised!
The ride will be continuing their partnership with the Cancer Foundation of Saskatchewan and raising funds for a new Mobile Mammography Bus for the Saskatchewan Cancer Agency’s Breast Cancer Screening Program. The first bus, built in 2003, needs replacement at a cost of $1.5 million. In 2019, over 8,000 mammogram screenings were performed on women living in the rural areas of Saskatchewan, marking the great importance and life-saving detection of early breast cancer screening. Each year in Saskatchewan, approximately 740 new cases of breast cancer are diagnosed and an estimated 170 lives are lost.
