Welcome to Raida's Cycle of Life Tour Page
I’m excited and honoured to be taking part in my 3rd Cycle of Life Tour.
When I joined my first Cycle of Life Tour in 2019 it was to ride in honour and memory of my father who had spent his final few weeks under the professional and compassionate care of Comox Valley Hospice at the Views. I was forever grateful for my fathers peace and comfort and wanted to help support those who supported him, and his family, in his time of need. I convinced my friend Margaret to join me in registering for the tour that year. We had the most amazing time becoming part of “Team Cyclepaths”. We met the most awesome group of dedicated and fun teammates. Some who are still part of Team Cyclepaths. We spent countless hours riding the roads of the comox Valley, and many days out in the community raising awareness and funds for Comox Valley Hospice Society. We heard, and had our hearts touched by, many many stories of hospice care.
Sadly a few weeks after the 2019 tour Margaret was diagnosed with cancer. After a short but heroic battle, Margaret….my friend and fellow teammate, said goodby to the world on May 28th of 2020. I now also ride in Margaret’s honour and memory. In addition to my Dad and Margaret I also ride for the people of the Comox Valley. Comox Valley Hospice Society provides end of life care, and bereavement support, for the people of the Comox Valley. It is the goal of the Comox Valley Hospice Society that those in our community who are living with a life limiting illness, are supported and have their wishes respected; that their caregivers receive the help they need, and that they, and their families are supported in their grief. I feel EVERYONE deserves to be able to access any of the care that Comox Valley Hospice Society provides and this is my small part in helping ensure that is possible.
Let's all be hospice heroes. Help me help Comox Valley Hospice Society.. Please donate. Every little bit counts.
