Moncton, December 10, 2018 -
Cyclists who wish to take advantage of the early-bird registration for the 2019 Tour of Hope may do so until December 15. The 2019 edition will take place from July 25th to 28th.

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 2018 Tour of Hope raised a total of $300,000.

“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!” 

Since its inception in 1989, the Tree of Hope Campaign has raised close to 28 million dollars. Donations are used to improve patient care at the Dr. Léon-Richard Oncology Centre in Moncton and in satellite units in Northern New Brunswick. They also support cancer research efforts and fund improvements at the Mgr. Henri-Cormier Lodge, where patients can stay free-of-charge.


To take advantage of the early-bird registration, participants must register by December 15, 2018.
