8:30 AM to 11:30 AM
The Pedal Pub, 319 Mary Street, Niagara On the Lake, ON
Join Niagara-on-the-Lake Community Palliative Care’s fundraiser and in raising money for Palliative Care!
Starting at 8:30 AM on Saturday, September 25th, our team, the Pedal Pushers, will be gathering at the Pedal Pub in NOTL to start our 10k ride to raise money. A part of The Healing Cycle, a virtual volunteer-based non-profit organization dedicated to supporting hospice palliative care units across Ontario, this in-person event is our greatest opportunity to add kilometres to our 400k goal!
This year we are raising money for our newest wellness program. Our massage therapy program, which we provide for all of our long-term care & residential residents.
Our team, the ‘Pedal Pushers,’ consists of a fantastic group of palliative care supporters that will ride with us on our route. Helping us raise awareness for our cause and helping us reach our goal! Riding on the ‘Pedal Pub Bike’ will be:
- Lord Mayor Betty Disero
- Dr Karen Berti (NOTL Family Health Team)
- MPP Wayne Gates
- Chris Poose (Niagara Long Term Care)
- Patricia Whitwell (Our Board Chair & Upper Canada Lodge)
- Michael Dyck (Radiant Care Pleasant Manor)
- Ron Kassis (Chair of the Healing Cycle Foundation)
- Sean Simpson (Simpson’s Pharmasave)
- Ruth Lamarre (Palliative Care)
- One of our very own ‘NOTL Ukesters’ is playing along for the ride!
We encourage you to make a donation and join us! By walking, running, jogging or biking with us, you add to our goal of 400 kilometres! More supporters and clients are coming along as well!
This event will begin at 8:30 AM with a word from Bonnie Bagnulo out Executive Director, and Ron Kassies, the Chair of the Healing Cycle.
The route will start at the Pedal Pub, go down Mary to King street, then take John to Two Sisters. From there, we will be pedalling to Pellar Estates and onto the Parkway. We will be stopping at the Upper Canada Lodge for a quick water break and some songs from the Ukesters, playing for the long-term care residents. After our break, we will be heading down Queens Parade Street to King Street, back to Mary and the Pedal Pub.
A table will be set up for anyone who wants to learn more about Niagara-on-the-Lake Community Palliative Care or would like to donate.
Thank you for all of your support!
