The Mike Ham Award

Inspiration rides on. 

In honour of Mike Ham. A rider who set greatness in motion. Together, we can keep his momentum going.

A driving force behind our record setting 2019 event, Mike Ham’s words and passion continue to inspire us towards the finish line. Now, you can honour his legacy by nominating a rider who shares his steadfast commitment to the cause. A rider who in Mike’s words “was inspired, did something about it by joining Northern Pass, and became an inspiration to others.”

Nominate a rider who inspires, every km of the way.

This year’s recipient will receive an official “Hammer Down On Cancer” t-shirt (the Northern Pass ride team of Mike Ham’s family and friends), a certificate of greatness, as well as personal recognition from Northern Pass and The Princess Margaret.

All nominations will be sent to the Ham family for consideration and the 2021 recipient will be announced at the Northern Pass Ride. 
If you’re participating in Northern Pass this year and know a rider who, like Mike, was inspired to join, took action, rallied hard and in doing so, became an inspiration to you and others, send your nomination to northernpass@thepmcf.ca by Aug 4, 2021. Be sure to include their story of inspiration (in under 1,500 words) to give the Ham family a true sense of their passion and impact.

Let’s pass Mike’s dedication on to the next generation of riders.

“We are here to contribute and make a difference. We are all here connected by an illness or the desire to do something, raise some money and make a contribution. I feel really lucky to have such an incredible support group to come out and give us so much energy and passion.”
