Moncton, Wednesday November 27, 2019 – In two days, we’ll be right in the middle of the 2019 Tree of Hope Radiothon, the highlight of the annual fundraising campaign. Two million dollars is also the goal set by the campaign co-chairs this year. Two million dollars to reach a cumulative amount of 30 million dollars in the more than 30 years since the campaign began. 

Since the beginning, gifts to the Tree of Hope campaign have been invested directly in the improvement of care offered to patients suffering from cancer. Whether it be the purchase of equipment, comfortable chairs for patients, the Mgr-Henri-Cormier Lodge, the configuration of chemotherapy rooms in hospitals of the Vitalité Health Network, and funding local research, this campaign touches patients directly.

MONCTON, NB, November 14th, 2019 – Personalities from all over the province will shave their heads or undergo a significant haircut between now and November 29th, date of the Tree of Hope Radiothon. Participants in the initiative named Shears for Hope Challenge have two goals:

  • To show solidarity to the many patients who suffer hair loss as part of their cancer treatment; and
  • To raise funds for the Tree of Hope campaign.

The principle is quite simple. Anyone who accepts the challenge commits to raising at least $2,500 from his or her contacts or the general public. He or she also agrees to take a ‘before’ and ‘after’ photo or short video. In most cases, a cancer survivor, a patient, or a loved one of a survivor or of a patient will cut the hair.

Check out the Shears for Hope Challenge site between now and November 29th to see participant photos and campaign progress. https://fdnchudgld.akaraisin.com/shearsforhope

Moncton, Wednesday, October 16th-- The 2019 edition of the Tree of Hope campaign was launched this morning with great fanfare in eight Francophone schools across the province. Students, school staff and campaign representatives were in attendance.

"We had some technical problems But, spirits were high and there was a lot of energy," explains Martin Latulippe. He is a co-chair and the spokesperson for the launch. He also chaired the campaign from 2008 to 2012.

The slogan of the campaign is Ready for the Challenge! Schools taking part in the morning launch shared their financial goals and the challenges they are taking. Let's just say that there is a risk of seeing brightly coloured hair and shaved mustaches on November 29.

The 2019 edition of the Tree of Hope will be different from all previous campaigns. Nine people have agreed to be co-chairs this year. Nine people who have lent their names, their faces and their energy to this cause over the past 30 years. Nine people who say they are happy to be back at the helm. Every year, the Tree of Hope generates great passion all over the province.

Ready for the challenge! The co-chairs are excited to get involved and help ensure that the campaign is a resounding success. As a very first challenge, they have set a financial goal of $2 million. This is the highest goal ever set for the Tree of Hope, an activity that has touched the lives of thousands of New Brunswickers over the years.

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.

Moncton, February 25, 2019 –
 Preparations are well under way for the 9th edition of the Tour of Hope that will be held from July 25 to 28, 2019. With five months to go before the event, 127 cyclists are already registered. 

While registration levels are encouraging to date, the early registration date has been extended to March 15 in order to encourage those who may be interested in participating. For those who register by that date the fundraising requirement will be $1,000, rather than the $1,500 requirement for registrants after that date. Also, the total number of participants will be limited to 150 this year.

The Tour of Hope is a four-day cycling event to raise funds for the Tree of Hope campaign, while creating awareness for the importance of making healthy lifestyle choices. 

This event is also important for Assumption Life; in 2018, the company announced that it would be the presenting sponsor of the Tour of Hope for the next three years.
