“Tour the Hills” is a cycling event to raise much-needed funds for Cancer Assistance Halton Hills. This one-day event takes participants through the picturesque countryside of Halton Hills and is designed to get the community involved in a way that’s enjoyable, challenging, safe and beneficial to everyone involved.

There are four cycling routes available to choose from; 20km, NEW 50km, NEW 75km and NEW 100km. The ride will start and finish at the Trafalgar Sports Park in Georgetown. Aid stations will be set up along the routes to provide refreshments and healthy snacks along with first aid and roving bicycle repair services. Safety of the participants is paramount, so we will provide route marshals, ‘sweep’ vehicles and first aid services along the route to ensure participants safety.  After the ride, participants are invited to stay at the park and enjoy a BBQ lunch and entertainment. We want this to be a memorable and pleasant experience for everyone.

Please note: Minimum rider age is 14 years. No children in carriers or trailers please.

Don’t Miss….. Training Rides with ‘Bike It’!

This year we are pleased to announce that we are working with ‘Bike It Working Group’ to help you get ready for your big ride. The Bike It Working Group is hosting a series of group rides for novice and intermediate cyclists to help improve fitness and confidence.

This volunteer-led series starts with a short in-town route and builds to a 15 km rural route featuring hillier terrain. There is no fee for these rides but participants are asked to register their intent to join each of the rides by email hhcycling@haltonhills.ca. Cyclists must wear a helmet to participate and must be at least 14 years of age to join the ride.

About Cancer Assistance Halton Hills

In 2000, Cancer Assistance Halton Hills was founded with an idea and a donation of $200.00.  Seeing the need within Halton Hills, Cancer Assistance took up the challenge of providing practical home care services to the residents of Halton Hills.

Cancer Assistance delivers free community-based practical care and wellness programmes to help those coping with a cancer diagnosis and treatment.  From transportation to and from their doctor and hospital appointments to Reiki and practical home care are just a few of the important services we provide to patients and their families.

Cancer Assistance Halton Hills is not associated with any cancer organization, nor do we receive any government grants to fund our services.  Our services are funded locally from donations, fundraising events and the generous volunteers in the community. Our mandate is to help those touched with cancer. The need for quality services in Halton Hills continues to grow as an increasing number of men, women and children face a cancer diagnosis.  The financial support of our community ensures that patients will continue to receive the unique care services we provide.

The majority of the donations received at Cancer Assistance go directly to our patient programmes with only a small amount used for fundraising, administration and overhead expenses.  Through the generosity of the Summer family, we have a wonderful office facility to conduct our business activities conveniently located within the Mountainview Residence in Glen Williams.



If cycling isn’t your thing but you would still like to make a donation, please donate.

Thank you for helping us help those coping with cancer in our community.
