“Firstly, let me please thank you all for your support,”

Writes Tom Bell, 66, of Collingwood, ON, “It came in handy on the arduous stretches on the bike.”  Tom Bell undertook the tremendous 13,500km bicycle ride last year, the length of South America from Cartagena, Columbia, to Ushuaia, Argentina, to raise awareness and encourage donations to Hospice Georgian Triangle. His efforts were hugely successful, and by the incredible support of donors like you, over $21,300 was received by Hospice Georgian Triangle directly through Tom Bell’s South American Adventure.

And, as if this story wasn’t amazing enough, Tom is setting off again in January 2019, this time for Africa. For his second cross continental cycling journey, his own two wheels will traverse another 11,220km from Cairo, Egypt, to Cape Town, South Africa, and like before, he is riding in support of Hospice care.

Tom shares, “I had time to reflect on many things, impermanence being one; the ‘undeniable and inescapable fact of human existence.’ Campbell House (HGT) resonates with this idea, and how compassion and caring are so meaningful.”

Please join us in supporting Tom on his next journey. Ever humble and in good humour, Tom concludes “I am off on another cycling adventure in Africa. I will admit to selfish reasons for again asking for your support, it is very motivating. Thank You.”
