What is the Tour of Hope?
A group of cyclists raise funds and awareness for the Society by completing a challenging long distance cycling adventure through northern Alberta. 100% of the funds raised directly support Northern Alberta families affected by childhood cancer.
How did the Tour of Hope start?
In 2002, when Leo was about to embark on his final treatments for childhood cancer, his parents Cathie and Barry wanted to help their child and others like him. Their efforts, hard work, dedication and love for their child led to the creation of the Ride of Hope (now known as the Tour of Hope). Tour of Hope has become one of the major fundraising events for the Kids with Cancer Society. To date the ride has raised over $3,950,414 million to support children with cancer and their families.
