Moncton, Sunday, July 30, 2017—Participants in the Tour of Hope 2017 can safely say “mission accomplished”. The 70 cyclists crossed the finish line late Sunday, greeted by friends and family at Assomption Place in Moncton.

The Tour of Hope, presented by National Bank, is an annual fundraiser supporting the Tree of Hope Campaign. Proceeds are used to purchase highly specialized equipment; train highly-specialized teams at the Dr. Léon-Richard Oncology Centre; purchase equipment for satellite units in northern New Brunswick; support cancer research efforts; and update the Mgr. Henri-Cormier Lodge in Moncton. In 2016, the Tour of Hope raised more than $113,000.

“We just experienced another incredible adventure!” says Dr. Carole Williams, gynecologist-oncologist and co-chair of the Tour of Hope 2017. “We received another warm welcome as we passed through various communities. We really felt that people were there to support us, and that makes a huge difference when you’re taking on such a physical challenge. We had the opportunity to mingle with other participants, make friends, and share the reasons we decided to take part in the Tour of Hope. The adventure will be engraved in our memories for a long time.”

Tour of Hope’s organizers are thankful for the support of the partners who made the 2017 edition a success. Jacques B. LeBlanc is President and CEO of the CHU Dumont Foundation.

“The Tour of Hope is a real team effort. In addition to tackling a physical feat, covering 650 km in 4 days, participants also stepped up to call on their friends and family to make donations. We are very grateful for the public’s generosity. We are also very pleased to have the support of National Bank, who has been behind this event since its very beginning. We would also like to sincerely thank Assomption Life, Fitworks and Groupe Savoie, without whom this edition would not have been possible.”

  • New Brunswick Community College, Miramichi Campus
  • La Polyvalente Cité des jeunes A.-M.-Sormany in Edmundston
  • The Village of Grande-Anse

Réjean Després, Vice President, Personal and Commercial Banking, Atlantic Canada was co-chair of the event for the second year.

“We all know someone who is fighting or who has fought cancer. The Tour of Hope is a perfect example of a fundraising event that brings people together and helps patients while promoting healthy living habits. I think we can all tip our hats to the 70 participants, who did remarkable work. And let’s not forget all of the volunteers, including several National Bank employees, who were there to support participants during the four intense days of cycling. Without them, none of this would have been possible!”

According to Claude Paré, Vice President of the Provincial Cabinet for the Tree of Hope Campaign, the Tour of Hope 2017 was a success on all fronts.

“I would like to sincerely thank the cyclists and the entire support team! They were able to pull off this incredible feat, and we are extremely proud to be able to have them as members of the Tree of Hope family. They showed courage and determination, inspired by those bravely fighting cancer. We are stronger together, and I assure you that funds raised during the 2017 edition will make a significant difference in the quality of care offered to patients in New Brunswick.”
