Virtual Healing Cycle Ride Month – September 2020!

I am participating for the 2ndtime [albeit virtually] in the Healing Cycling’s Annual Ride.  For this year, I am taking on the personal challenge of raising $4,000 by covering 400 km through a combination of walking and cycling efforts over the month of September.  

Brief Background on the Foundation and Hospital Palliative Care

The Healing Cycle Foundation exists to raise funds and awareness on a subject matter that people often don’t talk about – hospice palliative care. The Foundation is run by a board of volunteers and has raised over $3 million dollars in the last 15 years for Ontario Hospices, through our annual Healing Cycle Ride.

Hospice palliative care is a combination of active and compassionate therapies intended to comfort and support persons and families who are living with, or dying from, a progressive life-limiting illness, or are bereaved.  Here are some additional noteworthy facts:

Hospices provide around-the-clock palliative care services in a home-like setting 

In most cases, hospices admit only those who are in the very last stages of life, although some may also offer respite services

Hospices have to raise more than 50% of their operating budget every year, so they rely on people like us to continue to exist!

I truly appreciate any contribute you can make to help support this Foundation’s incredible efforts. 

Many thanks,
