Quest For The Gold Jersey
When you sign up for The Ride to Conquer Cancer, you begin an epic journey that culminates in a two-day, 200+ kilometre trek across Canada. But the goal is to not only cross that finish line, but also raise vital funds for cancer research and care. Now you can showcase your incomparable commitment to this cause when you go for gold: the Quest for the Gold Jersey!
The Quest for the Gold Jersey celebrates the Riders who raise the most donation dollars as they journey towards The Ride. This initiative gives you the chance to make a demonstrative fundraising impact each and every month, and come Ride weekend, the Rider with the most Monthly Quest wins will be awarded the coveted Gold Jersey!
So go for the gold—the Quest for the Gold Jersey begins November 2, 2015!
The Gold Jersey
The winner of the Gold Jersey will be the Rider who won the most Monthly Quests during the length of the program. Should there be a tie, the tiebreaker will go to the Rider who received the earliest donation during the program. The winner will receive the coveted Gold Jersey on stage at The Ride!
