About the Peloton Project
The Cancervive Peloton Project (CPP) is Cancervive’s flagship event aimed at ambassadorship of cancer survivors and awareness of their issues. The annual nine-day bike excursion from Calgary features a group of 30 riders in pelotons of six, cycling relay style 24 hours a day. Over the past years, Cancervive had cycled to Austin five times, and in the other years, the chose destinations like Philadelphia, San Jose and last year Lewiston, Maine.
This year we are riding to San Francisco in California. The riders are expected to leave on September 18, 2013. We will be participating in the one-day bike ride organized by the Canary Foundation in Palo Alto on Saturday September 28, 2013.
Cyclists will arrive in San Francisco in time to participate in weekend activities. Each rider has the chance to sponsor a Warrior to fly to San Francisco to participate in the weekend’s events and celebrate survivorship. The Warrior Program offers some relief and at the same time gives a dose of hope and inspiration, as the journey through cancer treatment can be a spiritual drain on patients and their families.
This is the second year that Cancervive will be riding to California and 2013 marks Cancervive’s 9th year organizing the annual bike ride in support of cancer survivorship.

About the Cancervive Challenge
The Cancervive Challenge provides the opportunity for cancer survivors and their supporters to train for an achievable goal and give back to the cancer community. A key to life beyond cancer includes physical activity and peer support - the Cancervive Challenge provides this.
Each participant will train to participate in the one-day Canary Challenge cycling event in Palo Alto, California on September 28, 2013. In addition to training, each rider will raise funds throughout the year in support of Cancervive and Wellspring.
We will be there as one team cheering on each participant as they achieve their own goal.
About Cancervive Volunteers
Cancervive relies on volunteers to help out with the ride. We require Motorhome volunteers, Medics, Ambulance Drivers and Return Drivers. Without the support of these volunteers, we couldn't run our programs.
Cancervive is the umbrella organization that administers and directs the activities of all aspects of the project. Cancervive is volunteer based, and we direct 100% of donated funds to local cancer survivorship programs offered through Wellspring Calgary. A community-based center, Wellspring Calgary provides a wide range of cancer support programs and services to serve the emotional, social, and informational needs of people living with cancer, and those who care for them. Wellspring Calgary programs are provided at no cost to the user.
