2020 Atlantic Challenge Update
With the continued concerns and restrictions in place due to the Covid-19 pandemic, and in response to the current and ongoing local, provincial and federal restrictions, the Board of Directors of Wellspring and Ride Committee have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Ride for Cancer Support – The Atlantic Challenge, scheduled for August 22-29, 2020 to Halifax.
We recognize how disappointing this is for our riders, volunteers, sponsors and donors and everyone for their understanding and support during the incredibly challenging time.
Although we have unfortunately had to cancel our 2020 ride, we have every intention to move ahead with the ride to Halifax in 2021. As soon as we have our new dates, we will be sure to share them here.
What is the Wellspring Ride for Cancer Support?
It's an epic life adventure, an adrenaline kick, it’s friends for life and it's the thrilling challenge of the body, mind and spirit, all coming together to achieve a milestone. Completing the Wellspring Ride for Cancer Support is an impressive accomplishment that only a few have the privilege of boasting, and it is an inspiring story of being able to help support those most in need.
What the Wellspring Ride for Cancer Support is not, is another typical group charity ride. Instead, it's a unique cycling challenge in which teams of cyclists (pelotons) ride together for six hours at a time, travelling distances of approximately 120 km for 8 days, to travel more than 3,000 km to raise funds to support those living with cancer.
And only 30 riders will get this opportunity to change their lives and the lives of someone living with cancer.
Advanced training, some special gear (a bicycle), and a big heart are all you need to be part of the next epic cycling adventure that will take you from Toronto to Halifax.
