Welcome to Carol's VI Hospice Support Page
On July 18th & 19th, I will be riding nearly 200km to raise funds for hospice care on Vancouver Island.
My regular biking group, the Half Fast Riders, recently lost another one of our members after a relatively short battle with cancer. Rick was a very kind and supportive person, my first memory of him is waiting patiently for me at the side of the road when I couldn't keep up in my early days with the group. We miss him greatly. Having now lost 2 riding friends to cancer in the past year and a half has emphasized to me how important support services are. I know that our local Oceanside Hospice is there to provide valuable support to those in palliative care and to their family and friends. It’s a cause I believe in. Vancouver Island hospices provide end-of-life palliative care, counseling, bereavement support, and at-home care to over 12,000 patients and family members each year. Despite the value of their services, none are fully funded by our already stretched thin health care system. The care and comfort they provide is only possible because of generous community support.
I’m trying to raise $1000 for our local Oceanside Hospice, our team goal is $20,000. But we need your support.
