Moncton, February 12, 2020 - Cyclists who wish to take advantage of the early-bird registration for the 2020 Tour of Hope may do so until March 31. Once again, a maximum of 150 cyclists will be part of the pack. There are currently 110 cyclists registered for the 2020 edition, that will take place from July 23 to 26.

The Tour of Hope is a fundraising event for the Tree of Hope Campaign. This four-day cycling tour helps raise awareness of the importance of adopting a healthy lifestyle. The 2019 Tour of Hope raised a total of $400,000.

 

“Next July, Tour of Hope participants will have the chance to cycle around New Brunswick alongside people who, like them, are committed to improving the care of cancer patients in New Brunswick," said event Co-Chair Dr. Carole Williams. “The funds raised make a real difference in the quality of care offered to cancer patients, right here in New Brunswick.”

As was the case last year, the tour will kick off in Edmundston on Thursday morning. That day, participants will cycle to Campbellton. After a well-deserved night of rest, they will cycle through the Chaleur region and reach Caraquet. On Saturday, they will travel from Caraquet to Miramichi, via Tracadie and Neguac. On the last day of the event, the cyclists will travel from Miramichi to Moncton, passing through Kent County and the Shediac area.

“I am looking forward to sharing this great adventure with cyclists from all over New Brunswick,” said Co-Chair Denise Landry Nadeau. “The Tour of Hope conveys a clear message about the importance of being active and committed to improving our health. This is an experience we will never forget. It allows us to challenge ourselves physically and mentally, while creating new friendships and many memories!” 

The Tour of Hope supports the Tree of Hope Campaign and its mission 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, the Mgr.-Henri-Cormier Lodge. Each year, projects are proposed and executed based on needs expressed and funds raised throughout the province and elsewhere.

To take advantage of the early-bird registration, participants must register by March 31, 2020. For details, please visit: www.tourespoir.com.
