$575,000 RAISED FOR WELLSPRING CANCER SUPPORT FOUNDATION.
One of Fonthill's finest, Rotarian Frank Adamson, Assistant Governor participated in this epic 7 day, 24 hour bike ride from Oakville, ON to Miami, FL covering almost 3000km to raise funds. There were 28 cyclists and 23 volunteers completed the Wellspring Peloton Challenge and by the time the riders crossed the finish line in Miami on September 30, they had each pedaled an average of 120 km a day, and climbed a total of 14,443 meters.
Greeting the team of riders and volunteers in Miami were a group of Wellspring Warriors – individuals who are facing cancer or who are cancer survivors, along with a large group of cheering family members and friends of the ride team.
Each rider committed to fundraising $10,000 and many have exceed this goal.
Since inception the Wellspring Peloton Challenge has raised over $2 million to help Wellspring continue to provide vital cancer support programs, at no cost, to people living with cancer and those who care for them.
Also, for the second time this year, 38 cyclists participated in the Wellspring Peloton Experience, a 1-day cycling event through Southern Ontario that launched the same day as the Wellspring Peloton Challenge. Participants had the opportunity to experience what it would be like to partake in the Wellspring Peloton Challenge without going the full distance. Cyclists completed either The Classic (60km) or The Turnaround (110 km) and collectively raised over $26,000 for Wellspring.
