CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - July 14, 2011) - Through sun, rain and wind, more than 11,000 riders brought passion and perseverance to their efforts toward a cancer-free future, raising a total of $43.9 million to support cancer research and delivering a striking blow in the fight against a disease that impacts one in four Canadians. </p>

The 2011 Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer events came to a conclusion this past weekend with the fourth and final ride taking place in Quebec July 9-10. Following on the success of the Ontario, B.C. and Alberta rides that took place in June, the Quebec event was another triumph, raising more than $6.7 million for cancer research in that province. </p>

"Congratulations to all the riders, volunteers and participants who committed so much to cancer research. Together we really have made an epic impact," said Patrick D. Daniel, Enbridge President and CEO. "We're proud to be the national sponsor title for the Enbridge Ride to Conquer Cancer for 2011 - 2013 and we hope to see you out there participating in next year's rides!" </p>

In addition to their company's sponsorship role, Enbridge employees were active participants in the Ride, with more than 200 employees, friends and family members raising more than $900,000.</p>

"Knowing others who have had cancer, and as a cancer survivor myself, this was a very personal event for me. I'm proud of my accomplishment, and with my fellow employees, proud of our company's association with the Ride. We're eager to do what we can to contribute to its success in raising much-needed dollars for research," said Janet Holder, President, Enbridge Gas Distribution and a member of Enbridge's Ontario Ride team. </p>
