Tour de Guelph 2022 raises $134,000 in net proceeds!
Thank you to the over 500 riders who rode in the 9th annual Tour de Guelph, presented by Label Design Ltd. We’re so thankful to the riders, sponsors, supporters, donors and volunteers.
Tour de Guelph supports Guelph General Hospital and other local charities through the Rotary Clubs of Guelph South and Guelph Trillium.
This year, proceeds raised from Tour de Guelph will help Guelph General Hospital purchase three new ultrasound machines. Ultrasounds are a crucial part of modern medicine. Each year, the Hospital does more than 25,000 scans! The recommended lifespan of an ultrasound machine is seven years. More than half of Guelph General’s machines are over a decade old. New ultrasound equipment produces incredibly sharp images. That means doctors can diagnose problems more accurately. Also, upgrading will put state-of-the-art scanners in every exam room that can do any type of ultrasound procedure. Which will dramatically improve workflow, allowing technologists to see more patients in a day.
In addition to supporting the Hospital, every year, many local groups aimed at youth development, family support, and community building are supported by Tour de Guelph proceeds through the Rotary Clubs of Guelph South and Guelph Trillium. For example the West Willow Village Community Association and Brain Injury Association Waterloo-Wellington (BIAWW) Bike Helmut Program.
$134,000 raised of the $165,000 goal!
