Who We Are

EMBRACING THE CYCLE OF LIFE

The Healing Cycle Foundation is a virtual, volunteer-based non-profit organization dedicated to supporting hospice palliative care units across Ontario.

 

We believe in embracing the cycle of life and providing appropriate supports to patients as they reach end of life, which is also a time of transition for their family.

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




What is a virtual ride?


Instead of doing one ride on a specific day, all participants are invited to complete a set distance over the course of the month of September, individually or with their friends and colleagues. In August, we will announce the details of the virtual distance challenge that everyone, regardless of fitness level or ability, can participate in! This will be a fun, interactive and exciting way to connect with your teammates and check in on each other’s progress throughout the month. and easier than ever to take part in!
