The proceeds will be shared between the Telford family of Merrickville, to help their daughter in her journey to conquer cancer; and Team Merrickville 2012 in the Ride the Rideau 100k cycling fundraiser from Ottawa-Merrickville in September, which raises funds for cancer research and patient care at the Ottawa Hospital
