Wheels of Hope Cycling Tour 2017
60 km London to Ingersoll and Back
Imagine facing the devastation of a cancer diagnosis. Now imagine having to worry about how you will get back and forth to treatment. In Ontario, 1 in 5 cancer patients have trouble getting to their life-saving treatment appointments.
The net proceeds from this event will be donated to the Canadian Cancer Society Wheels of Hope Transportation Program. In 2016 $7,900 was raised and 100% went to the program.
Help your neighbours focus on getting well, not on how they will get to treatment.
Make a donation to help provide rides to cancer patients in your community.
Awesome prizes available for top fundraisers!

1. Help your neighbors. Last year in Elgin-Middlesex 586 patients were provided rides by our volunteer drivers through our Wheels of Hope program.
2. Enjoy the ride. It’s a non-competitive ride, meaning it’s all about the camaraderie, sights and fun.
3. 1 in 5 cancer patients in Ontario have trouble getting to their lifesaving treatment appointments. Help them get there.
4. Be active. About one third or all cancers can be prevented by eating well, being active and maintain a healthy body weight.
5. 200,000 kms. This is how many kilometers 140 volunteers drove in Elgin-Middlesex in 2013 through the Wheels of Hope program. This is the equivalent of driving our cycling course 2,576 times.
Join our pack for a cycling adventure. Ride with us on August 26th in support of the Wheels of Hope Transportation Program.
