|Brooks man preparing for Enbridge cancer ride|
Like many people, George Hillier has been touched by cancer. Because of this, he will be taking part in the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer Aug. 9-10.
The Lords Cove, Newfoundland native will be one of just over 2,000 riders that will travel from Calgary Olympic Park to Okotoks along a scenic route.
Riders have a choice in taking part in a camp complete with entertainment or staying in a hotel.
Hillier, who has been a resident of Brooks for 15 years, said he will camp because he believes it will be a neat experience that will allow him to bond with other riders.
While he is not a cyclist and knew nothing about the ride until this year, he decided he wanted to help make a difference in finding a cure for the disease.
Hillier found out about the ride in late January and it only took a couple of days to decide he wanted to get involved. Full Story >
