R.o.c.k. Ride

'Cause kids shouldn't need chemo...

The R.O.C.K. was founded in 2004 after Samantha Thomas lost her nine month battle with Acute Lymphoblastic Lymphoma, three days before her third birthday. R.O.C.K. Founders, Bob & Lori, knew that they had to do something to put some meaning to this terrible tragedy, to find a greater purpose to their loss. Sammy’s memory lives on through the R.O.C.K.

The R.O.C.K. began with 46 riders in Cambridge raising $13,204 for Childhood Cancer Canada. Founders Bob & Lori Thomas moved the ride back home to Sarnia in 2006 for 9 successful years. The ride then moved with the Thomas family to Niagara, raising another 100K for research. In 2019, they are set to reach their "Half-a-Million-$-to-date" milestone, and have added a second ride in Sarnia to help commemorate this fact.

New treatments and diagnostic tools are improving the survival rates each year, but we still have so far to go. Together, we can help, we can make a difference, we can save lives.

Come join us to remember our Angel Samantha and celebrate the 500K raised in her honour to help others.
