How and Why We are involved

The Ride to Conquer Cancer (RTCC) is a pledge-based fundraiser that began as a single event in 2008 and has grown into a nationwide phenomenon. Seven years on, the RTCC is Canada's largest cycling fundraiser and consists of four distinct regional events held across the country in British Columbia, Alberta, Ontario and Quebec. These inspirational rides attract cyclists from all walks of life and create a sense of unity that must be experienced to be believed.

The RTCC has raised nearly $150 million in support of cancer research and attracts more than 10,000 riders every year. Norco is an official RTCC sponsor, and we do more than offer financial and technical support for all four regional events. Ahead of the 2016 RTCC, we donated a Norco Valence to a rider who was injured in a powerful windstorm at the 2015 BC Ride. Alana Pirro suffered serious injuries and had her bike crushed when she was struck by a falling tree. Despite her injuries, she is determined to get back in the saddle and cross the finish line in 2016. We are proud to support every RTCC rider to ensure they complete the ride of their lifetime.

Meet Alana Pirro, one of the many extraordinary RTCC riders. Despite life-threatening injuries during the 2015 RTCC, she is back on her bike and committed to participate in the event again this year. A true inspiration.
