Adrian Campbell ride
The Adrian Campbell Scholarship Fund was established as a tribute to Adrian’s many accomplishments in his too brief life. The Fund supports young athletes in individualized endurance sports who are also beginning their post- secondary education. Adrian was a great proponent of fitness and encouraged and helped many others to follow his path. He would be honoured to know that he was helping young athletes with the additional financial costs associated with simultaneously pursuing their sport and education.
Tour for Kids
Tour for Kids is a two day charity cycling event in Atlantic Canada. Together, we raise funds and awareness for children attending Brigadoon Village’s in-city and in-hospital programs, Family Oncology Retreat and Atlantic Teen Oncology Retreats. This organization does not receive government funding and must rely on donations such as yours to carry on their essential programs. As more children survive childhood cancer, social interaction with peers and being able to manage day to day activities with limited mobility is key to the success of their recovery. Brigadoon’s programs are not just fun and games, they’re a way of delivering camp in a way that our hospitals cannot.
July 29-19, 2018.
Join the ride on Sunday, June 4th for the 7th Annual Life Cycle hosted by the Valley Cardiac Rehab Society and Town of Kentville. Once again, the Eastern Kings Memorial Health Foundation is our principle sponsor enabling Life Cycle to remain a free (or minimal cost) community event celebrating the health and healing benefits of exercise and active living.
ride for cancer
Ride for Cancer strives to improve cancer treatment, research and patient care at the QEII Health Sciences Centre. To date, fundraising efforts has purchased an additional apheresis machine – a crucial piece of equipment in blood cancer treatment – and endobronchial ultrasound (EBUS) technology, which provides a safer and less-invasive alternative to diagnosing lung cancer and lymphoma. Beyond funding vital equipment, Ride for Cancer has funded support programs to help patients through their cancer journey, as well as local research to discover improved treatments for aggressive cancers.
