The Canadian Cancer Society in Lanark, Leeds & Grenville is excited to announce the launch of the 30-Day Cycling Challenge, a new fundraiser during November. The Challenge will raise funds and awareness for the Society’s Wheels of Hope, a critical transportation service that helps community members get to their cancer-related appointments.
In Ontario, 1 in 5 cancer patients cannot get to their cancer-related appointments. Last year, the Society’s Lanark, Leeds & Grenville volunteer drivers drove 292,524 kilometres, with each trip costing an average of just more than $60 due to the long distances travelled in eastern Ontario.
For the 30-Day Cycling Challenge, the cycling can be done on the road or in a gym, in a group or on your own. The minimum fundraising goal is thirty dollars, which corresponds to the average cost of a one-way trip to a patient’s cancer treatment.
Motivate yourself to pedal with purpose for a cause this November. For more information or to register for the 30-Day Cycle Challenge, visit cancer.ca/
