April 9 – 30 – Documentary/Fundraising Idea

This is a documentary on the symbiotic relationship between the cycling community and the Hospice/Palliative Care community in a small Ontario City – Sarnia. This is a professionally produced film that shows how palliative care can benefit from a sporting event. It will be introduced by some short speeches and a beautiful song. It is a great demonstration of what hospice and palliative care are all about.

Your ticket provides access to the live stream on April 9 at 730 pm EST, or you can access the recording any time up to April 30th.

Cost of the ticket is $20 and all the profits go to Palliative Care education.
