About the Cycle of Life Tour

The Cycle of Life Tour is an annual group cycling fundraiser supporting hospice care on Vancouver Island.


2024 marks the 11th year of the group ride! 125 cyclists + 200 km + 2 days = one huge difference.

My roots are from beautiful Winnipeg, MB! My husband and I moved here 2 and a half years ago. We feel very much at home in this beautiful little city. I did support MB Habitat for Humanity for many 2 weeks rides in support of a home for individuals who need a hand up. It is called the Cycle of Hope. Now that I am here, I have a very soft spot for Hospice, as our agency did do interpretation work for Hospice in Winnipeg. This experience educated me in the importance and the value of the amazing service that is offered. I am also an enthusiastic road cyclist, so these two opportunities were just up my alley, and here I am with an amazing group

of like-minded people.

I truly believe in the important work being done in hospices across Vancouver Island. Hospices provide compassionate end-of-life palliative care, counseling, bereavement support, and at-home care to over 12,000 patients and family members each year. Despite the value of their services, none are fully funded by the health care system. The care and comfort they provide is only possible because of generous community support. I’ve promised to raise at least $1,000 to help keep Vancouver Island hospice

care in motion, and I need

your support.

I am riding in memory of my wife Lois and my daughter-in-law Kim, who both passed in 2022 after long, courageous battles with cancer. Hospice counselling helped me tremendously after such a devastating loss. It became apparent how effective hospice care is for grieving individuals and families. I was shocked to find out that they receive less than 10% funding from the government. Hospice depends heavily on donations and volunteers to sustain operations. At 81 years young, I am honored to be a volunteer and a rider for such a worthwhile community

endeavor.

I am thrilled to be part of the CR Soul Cyclers team in the Cycle of Life Tour for Hospice. As a retired healthcare worker, I have seen first hand the vital services that hospice provides. I also have friends and family who have benefitted from these services. I will be celebrating a milestone birthday later this year, so this is a fitting opportunity to both challenge myself, and to raise money for a great cause!

I will be riding in the Cycle of Life tour to raise money for hospice care on Vancouver Island. After my wife, Shirley, died in last year I became acutely aware of the need for the kind of care that Hospice provides. Grief is a powerful emotion that will affect almost everyone of us. Hospice provides professional counselling services and other community activities that can help manage the pain and loneliness of grief. Despite the value of these services, none are fully funded by the health care system. The support of hospice comes from the communities it serves. Consider supporting my participation in the Cycle of Life Tour with a donation to Hospice. The money I raise will stay in our community and support the ongoing service that Hospice provides. Thank you.

I'm embarking on the Cycle of Life tour again because this cause resonates deeply with me due to the losses I endured as a child. Looking back, I realize the profound solace counselling could have brought during those tumultuous times. Witnessing the transformative effect of Hospice services on grieving families has only strengthened my conviction. Your generous donation can ensure these indispensable services continue to uplift souls in Campbell.

Your support means the world to me.

 

Thank you, from the depths

of my heart.

I'm participating in the Cycle of Life event because I deeply value the presence of hospice care in Campbell River. It's an invaluable service that provides comfort and dignity to individuals during their most vulnerable moments. Additionally, I dedicate my time to volunteering at a local seniors' day care program. Both of these initiatives enrich our lives in countless ways, fostering compassion, empathy, and a sense of community. By supporting these services, I hope to ensure their continuity and the well-being of all those they touch.
