Our Mission, Vision & Values

Join the Ride

Support the cause




The Healing Cycle Foundation is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to supporting hospices and palliative care units across Ontario. We believe in making moments matter, especially at a time when every moment counts. We lend our support by raising funds through our annual Healing Cycle Ride, now in its 16th year.


We love to see hospice palliative care organizations, health care professionals, patients' friends and families and members of the community build teams of riders, raise funds, come together and have fun at the ride. Over the past 15 years, The Healing Cycle Foundation has raised more than $3 million dollars for Ontario hospices and palliative care units.


In 2020, we hope you’ll join us in reaching our goal of raising $200,000 and making moments matter for more Ontario patients and their families.

thank you

A huge shout-out to all of your participants, donors and sponsors!

#HealingCycleMonth was a complete success. Our teams and donors surpassed all of our expectations.


Thank you for your commitment to supporting the hospice-palliative care community. 



At The Healing Cycle Foundation, as we approach the end of 2020, is calling on our community to continue our support of hospices across Ontario. Unfortunately, COVID-19 has continued to prevent families from visiting loved ones in long term care facilities and those that are facing their final days.

At this time of year, we want to provide support to the health care and administrative workers that are often alongside our loved ones at the most crucial times when we can't.This is why, this season, we are asking you to help Deliver Hope for the Holidays.

The other 15% will be used to cover the online banking and credit card fees as well as administrative and ride costs.
