Whitby, Ontario – BMW Group Canada has provided four X6 Sport Activity Coupes as support vehicles for the Sears National Kids Cancer Ride, which began yesterday. The four X6 vehicles will follow the cyclists to June 20 as they travel from Vancouver to Halifax, stopping at major cities across the country.

The vehicles will escort the fifty riders and will be driven by a support crew, who will be on hand to assist riders if they require medical or mechanical help. The event is one of the longest and most ambitious charity cycling events benefitting childhood cancer in the world.

The ride begins in Vancouver, lasts 19 days, and covers 7,600 km. The 50 cyclists were hand-picked from applicants across Canada, based on their ability to complete the entire trip. These “national” riders will be joined by hundreds of other cyclists, who will ride distances ranging from 25 to 200 km to raise funds. Along the route, the cyclists will stop and visit many of Canada’s pediatric oncology hospitals and Sears stores, where they will meet children and their families affected by cancer. The goal of the event is to raise millions of dollars for programs that improve survival rates and quality of life.
