Join Us for the Hunter Fondo 2023!

We're excited to announce that the Campbellford Memorial Hospital Foundation is one of the recipients of the upcoming Hunter Fondo 2023!

The event, taking place on Saturday, August 19th, 2023, at Ashburnham Memorial Park, is an exciting cycling event in memory of John Hunter, an avid cyclist who inspired people to ride bikes wherever they went. The Hunter Fondo features three distinct routes:

  1. Gravel Heaven (40KM): A flat ride out the Great Canadian Trail heading southeast towards Hasting with a scenic loop in around Lang Village and Hope Mill. A classic fall night ride of John’s that you can cut short or extend as desired.
  2. Frappe le Rue (60KM): A generally flat route with a mix of scenic rivers, lakes, and farmland. This was John’s way of saying that it was time to hit the road.
  3. It’s Going To Be An Easy Ride (125KM): An annually planned epic ride by John that tests endurance. This route is a combination of routes John had ridden, with the pace marshaled for an enjoyable day in the saddle.

We'd like to extend our gratitude to the event sponsors: Shimano, Wild Rock Outfitters, Ashburnham Ale House, Optimal Health Physiotherapy, and Silver Bean Café, whose generous financial contributions and support have been outstanding.

Participating in the Hunter Fondo is not just about cycling; it's also about making a difference. The event encourages youth to get involved with cycling, offering registration at only $20 for those eighteen and under, thanks to the Tony Osborne Fund. But the impact doesn't stop there. A minimum of $10 from each registration, plus fifty percent of net proceeds, will be donated to the Peterborough and Campbellford Hospital foundations.

Your participation will support the Campbellford Memorial Hospital, where thousands of people from the Trent Hills and surrounding area come seeking expert care and treatment. The hospital serves its community at the highest level of healthcare possible, and with the increasing demand for care, the need for new and replacement equipment is greater than ever. Your support will help us enhance the care provided, attract talented medical expertise to our community, and save more lives.

Join us at the Hunter Fondo 2023, embrace the spirit of cycling, and contribute to a good cause. See you on August 19th!
