2019 Tour of Hope a resounding success

Tour of Hope 2019 128

Moncton, Monday July 29, 2019 – A boisterous crowd was on hand to welcome the more than 140 participants in the 2019 Tour of Hope yesterday.  Assumption Place in Moncton was all set to greet the cyclists who, this year, raised more than 342 000 $ a record amount in this 9th edition of the Tour.

The Tour of Hope, presented by Assumption Life, is a fundraising activity which contributes directly to the Tree of Hope Campaign whose mission is to improve comfort and care for cancer patients through the purchase of specialized equipment for the Dr.-Léon-Richard Oncology Center, and by offering advanced training opportunities for specialized oncology teams here in New Brunswick.

Projects funded are based on the needs identified at the Dr.-Léon-Richard Oncology Center and in other Dumont UHC departments offering a continuum in oncology care, for example, regional satellite units. Each year, projects are proposed and executed based on needs expressed and funds raised throughout the province and elsewhere. In 2018, the Tour of Hope raised $300,000.
