Where will the funds raised at W2H 2017 go?
The funds raised at this year’s Wheel 2 Heal ride will support the greatest needs at Eagle Ridge Hospital and Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation.
What are the greatest needs at Eagle Ridge Hospital?
The greatest needs support a wide range of necessities; from running specialized clinical programs, to purchasing equipment, and supporting clinical education for staff along with other cause-related needs like hosting events such as Wheel 2 Heal.
I pay a registration fee, why do I need to fundraise?
In addition to encouraging people to live an active, healthy lifestyle, the Wheel 2 Heal event, hosted by Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation raises funds for Eagle Ridge Hospital. Government funding covers the basics, yet there is a significant gap. Your donations help fill this gap.
If I don’t meet the $250 minimum, can I still ride?
Thank you for your understanding. No – registrants who have not met the fundraising minimum will not be permitted to ride.
Wheel 2 Heal is a fundraising event supporting Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation. Riders who do not raise the minimum amount of $250 ($100 for youth) by event day will be asked to self-pledge the difference at the time of package pick up. Please bring your credit card, personal cheque or some form of payment with you to package pick-up.
We are confident you will have all the tools you need to successfully reach (and surpass!) your fundraising goal. Our fundraising tips and support along with your enthusiasm make it possible. Sign up for the Wheel 2 Heal newsletter for great tips. As a thank you for reaching your fundraising goal, our sponsors are donating MikeBurgers and beers to all riders.
