Motorcycle Team Launches 20,000-Mile Tour to Raise Awareness for Cancer Prevention

Answer for Cancer team to visit all North America states and provinces

Vancouver, BC (June 11, 2011) -- Four motorcycle riders with a personal connection to cancer hit the road today for a 65-day, 20,000-mile cancer awareness journey that will take them to all lower 48 states, as well as every Canadian province. The team will ride through Seattle today before returning to the Pacific Northwest on August 13, 2011.

Believing 80-90% of all cancer can be prevented through healthier lifestyle choices, the Answer for Cancer team, will speak at scheduled events along the route, sharing tips on how to mitigate the risk of cancer, and raising funds for the San Francisco-based Breast Cancer Fund. The Answer for Cancer team has already raised more than $300,000.

Stages will range from 163 miles (Regina to Saskatoon, Canada) to 424 miles (Oklahoma City to Austin, Texas.) Supporters can make donations online, and motorcycle riders across North America will be encouraged to join each day's stage for a $25 donation. All proceeds will go to support cancer prevention.

Chandler, Arizona resident and team member Dr. Christina Tondora, aka Dr. T., is a former helicopter avionics test engineer, who quit to become a naturopathic doctor.

"When it comes to cancer, prevention really is the ultimate cure," said Dr. Tondora. "That's why we want people to adopt a healthy lifestyle, reduce or eliminate their cancer-causing exposures and seek natural options for cancer prevention and treatment."

Other team members include Jason Bosa (president/co-founder of the Palladio jewelry store in Vancouver), Lori Losch (a member of the Iron Butt Association, the only woman to complete the Saddle Sore 1000 on a CBR motorcycle and the creator of Stretch Guru Mobile Apps) and Del Ferguson (a former horse breeder and current president of Multitech Industries.) Each team member has been inspired to ride by family members and friends they've lost to cancer.
