Spirit of Hope Aug. 28 – Sept. 1

Event Fundraising Goal: $50,000
Registration fee per cyclist: $499
Fundraising Commitment per cyclist: $1,500

The 4th Annual Spirit of Hope is a supported, cycling adventure along the shores of the Lake Winnipeg. Funds raised will help a local family build strength, stability and self-reliance through affordable home ownership.

Cyclists will enjoy a moderately challenging, 5-day loop from Winnipeg to the Northern tip of Hecla Island, August 28 to September 1, 2023. Along the way, the team will have a chance to relive their childhood at Camp Arnes where they can experience summer camp activities, campfires and indoor accommodations.

You can also sign up as support team volunteer on this weeklong adventure. There is NO registration fee for volunteers. Volunteers are encouraged to fundraise and suggest a minimum of $250 for those new to the event. For more experienced fundraisers, please set your own minimum: $500, $1,000, or more!
