Douglas T. Chicken is ready to ride to conquer cancer
Doug is as ready as he'll ever be.
The Pure Country 106 mascot - our beloved chicken - has spent the past couple of months training for this weekend's Ride to Conquer Cancer in support of the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. It's an epic two day fundraising bike ride covering off more than 200km between Toronto and Niagara Falls.
He is a member of Nobody Does it Alone, which under the guidance of their Captain, Mike Dupuis, have been riding for 10 years to raise money to support cancer patients and find a cure in his lifetime. Mike has raised $100,000 to date!!
In 2014 Mike decided to "upgrade" his bike to a tandem bicycle, and added his co-pilot Otto in 2015. This year Douglas will join Mike and Otto on the journey, as will two younger generation riders Julie Pilon and Janelle Boulanger.
