cycle of hope
The Cycle of Hope Society is proud to announce that they have raised over $60,000 for ALS Canada in 2014! With these funds, a wheelchair worth $25,000 is being purchased and will be donated to the Equipment Loan program at ALS BC & Yukon. The remainder of the funds will support research initiatives in finding a cure for ALS at ALS Canada.

The Cycle of Hope Society professionally trains a group of 12-16 individuals, in Victoria BC, who commit their time and energy to be part of the ALS Cycle of Hope cycling team. This team, in mid-August of each year, rides the unforgettable 500km ALS awareness journey from Kamloops to Keremeos BC.  During this unique 7-days ALS awareness journey, the ALS Cycle of Hope cycling team members meaningfully connect with many BC communities and families along the way. Riders take time to listen and share stories on how ALS has profoundly impacted lives.
