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.

The purpose of this ride is to raise money for charity as 85% of the funds raised by each hospice palliative care team will go directly back to charity. The other 15% will be used to cover the online banking and credit card fees as well as administrative and ride costs.
