EVENT DATE: Oct 11, 2013
From October 11-20, 2013, I will be participating in an 8-day 24-hour relay ride from Toronto to Austin, Texas, in support of Wellspring Centres in the Greater Toronto Area.
Wellspring understands how devastating a cancer diagnosis can be, and that when dealing with cancer you need more than medical care. You need help from people who understand the emotional, psychological, social and practical consequences of cancer and its treatment. You need the support, programs and services that are available at Wellspring.
Founded in a welcoming coach house in 1992, Wellspring is an innovative and growing network of community-based cancer support centres that collectively offer over 50 different programs. Wellspring provides support, coping skills, and education at no charge and without need of medical referral to individuals, family members and professional caregivers living with cancer.
Wellspring programs are open to individuals and caregivers who are coping with any type of cancer, at any stage. Programs include individual and group support, coping skills, expressive therapies, educational workshops and presentations, and cancer rehab programs. Programs are delivered within warm, welcoming Wellspring centres.
This ride funds more than 50 cancer support and coping skills programs that Wellspring provides, free of charge, to individual and families living with cancer.
