For the past ten years, we have participated in the “Healing CycleRide,” a vital fundraiser that benefits all Ontario Hospices, including ours. With 100% of funds raised by hospice teams going to their hospice, this is one of Niagara-on-the-Lake Community PalliativeCare’s biggest fundraisers of the year.
Our small team has been the top-ranking organization for the past several years. Affectionately named “The Pedal Pushers,” we raised over $30,000 last year. Our major donor, “the Hummel Family,” matched our donations up to $25,000, which increased our total to $60,000, the highest raised by our group!
These funds continued to allow us to provide all our services FREE of charge to the community. They also assisted us with new programming, particularly our Psychosocial Consultant for Palliative and Bereaved Clients.
For 2023, the Healing Cycle Ride is going to be outstanding. Here is where you come in. We are inviting “Teams” of riders to join us on Saturday, September 23rd, for our “Hummel Family Pedal Pushers Challenge.” We invite all businesses in Niagara-On-The-Lake to join our ride to help us raise money and beat last year’s total.
You’re Invited to Help Us Beat Our Previous Years’ Total!
Participation in the Healing Cycle is easy! You can either join virtually or in person.
The virtual challenge runs for the entirety of September. You can choose your activities and distance; the minimum fundraising goal is $400. As a participant, you will receive a T-shirt and a medal commemorating your participation in this fundraiser.
The In-Person Challenge is on September 23rd, 2023, at 9:00 a.m., departing from the Old Hospital on Wellington Street in NOTL. Ride, run, or walk 10k to help us beat our $60,000 goal! As a business, your name will be in our advertising, and a T-shirt will be waiting for you and your Team members, along with a gang full of other participants ready to have a successful 10k ride/walk.
Niagara-on-the-Lake Community Palliative Care is raising funds this year to help establish a new program called “Ben’s Compassionate Community.” This program will see our service support all people living with a progressive life-limiting illness. We believe that strokes, congestive heart issues, renal failures, COPD, Alzheimer’s, and certain arthritis conditions could benefit from more support through equipment lending, transportation services, and volunteers for companionship and respite. We would continue the services for as long as requested, free of charge as always.
If putting together a team isn’t possible, you can still contribute by raising funds within your business for this fundraiser. Alternatively, your name or business logo can appear on our T-shirts with a $500 or more corporate donation.
Go to thehealingcycle.ca to donate securely through the portal. Remember, donations can be doubled due to the Hummel Families’ generous matching incentive, allowing us to beat our previous year’s total. A tax receipt will be provided for every donation at the time of donation. We also accept cheques.
If your business would like to participate in this amazing life-changing fundraiser, don’t hesitate to contact us for more information. You can
call us or email firstname.lastname@example.org. All donations must be in by September 13th to be included on our T-shirts.
