Virtual Cycle for Life

Cycling in support of palliative care for people living in Markham, Stouffville and Thornhill!

While we cannot physically come together for fundraising events to support Evergreen Hospice, we can still connect virtually!  Our new event, “Cycle For Life” opens from August 1st until August 30th. You can join up and get sponsors or create a team to raise money for hospice palliative care in your community. Donations will be accepted for this event until September 13th.

RIDE YOUR OWN WAY: choose from 1, 5, 10, 20, 35 and 50 km routes.  Send us a photo of yourself before and after your ride as proof of your participation.

Not into bicycle riding? Take out your motorcycle, roller blades, skateboard or running shoes instead!

Create a team or cycle on your own! Evergreen clients, their families, local businesses and others in the community can register teams to participate virtually, while maintaining physical distancing. You can also challenge family, friends, neighbours and co-workers to join you. Show the world that now, more than ever, our connections matter.

Why participate? To recognize and support those in need of hospice palliative care in our community. Evergreen supports people dealing with life-threatening illness and their caregivers. Now more than ever, help is needed as we deal with a new, life-threatening illness and its impact on people and their families!

There is no registration fee, however we encourage you to collect a minimum of $50 in total donations through your fundraising efforts. If you are unable to cycle or do any of the alternatives, you are welcome to make a donation of any amount to another cyclist’s campaign to support the event.

Access our printable (PDF) brochure (coming soon!) to manually write down your sponsors or, create your own virtual fundraising page here and send your donors there to pledge their support. The deadline for participating in “Cycle for Life” is August 30, 2020. The deadline for submitting donations is September 13, 2020. Submit your paper forms with your sponsors’ cheques (payable to Evergreen Hospice) to our office at 5762 Hwy 7 E, Markham, ON L3P 1A8.
