Great Ride N Stride for Cancer

Thamesford was the home of the original ride and It was then known as the Ladies Ride for Cancer. In 1968 a group of 39 Ladies participated and raised over $4,000 for Cancer research. In 1969 the county of Oxford jumped in and they raised another $30,000 through the event.  It has subsequently expanded across the country. 

The Thamesford Ride is now organized by the Thamesford Lions with 100% of the money collected going to the Canadian Cancer Society.
