The annual ARCH Great Bucket List Cycle returns on Aug. 28.
The annual event is in person this summer. It takes place on St. Joseph Island and includes The Gran Fondo of 100 km, along with both a 70 km and 40 km option.
This year's event will also include a 20 km ride for those who still want to participate, but are still new to cycling.
Following is a full release from ARCH on the event:
The Great Bucket List Cycle is back for another amazing year and we are thrilled to be able to ride and celebrate in person!
Join us on Sunday, Aug. 28, on St. Joseph Island where cyclists will come together, and ride in support of ARCH Hospice! This event will include our Gran Fondo of 100 km, along with both a 70 km and 40 km option! This year, we are excited to introduce a 20 km ride for those who still want to participate, but are new to the cycling world!
"I love the ARCH Hospice Bucket List Cycle! Not only does it give me the opportunity to ride St. Joseph Island with friends, but it’s also a great way to recognize and fundraise for the amazing community organization that ARCH is! I have experienced the care and compassion that ARCH offers, and I want to be able to support the ongoing work that ARCH does in and for our community,” shared Mel Pavelich, an ARCH Bucket List Cyclist.
This ride is for all levels of cyclists, and ages - join as a whole family! Our goal is for each cyclist to either donate or raise at least $1/km. The map is available on the website! We are watching the construction and will inform participants if the route changes. All proceeds raised go towards providing quality compassionate end-of-life care at ARCH for local families! You can help ARCH by sponsoring, cycling, or volunteering!
If you pay or collect $100 in pledges before Friday, Aug. 12, you will receive a cycling t-shirt! If you raise more than $200 in pledges, you will receive a dri-fit cycling shirt to commemorate your experience at the 2022 Great Bucket List Cycle!
Julie Premo, Manager of Training and Coordination, shares why this event is so important; “Your support through this event means ARCH can continue to support those in our community for years to come. This ride means so much to me as I ride in honour of all those that have touched my life through my work at Hospice. Thank you for your ongoing and continued support.”
