Ride on! 2022 may be the biggest most important year for the Gran Fondo Lake Huron, presented by Bruce Power & Suppliers, since its inception in 2018. 2022 marks the return of hosting this fundraising event in person since 2019. The pandemic may have kept us from gathering together the last two years but now it’s time to Ride On!

This year’s fundraising ride will also be extra special since it will be in support of one of the largest and most important medical equipment needs for the hospital in Saugeen Shores.

This year’s Gran Fondo Lake Huron fundraising cycling ride will be in support of Saugeen Memorial Hospital Foundation’s $3 million Computed TOMography (CT) scanner fundraising project

“Bring Tom to Town”

A CT scanner at the hospital in Saugeen Shores means better quality healthcare for not only our entire community but also residents across Bruce and Grey County and the thousands of visitors that come to vacation or visit each year. Currently, patients in need of a CT scan are transferred to Owen Sound, which during emergent or trauma care means added wait and travel time before a scan is received, an ambulance is taken off the road in Bruce County to transport that patient and the ER or in-patient floor loses valuable nursing staff as a nurse accompanies that patient to Owen Sound.

There’s a lot riding on you in 2022!

A CT scanner at the hospital in Saugeen Shores will literally save lives. With a project cost of $3 million for the CT scanner this means we need EVERY SINGLE person who is taking part in this year’s Gran Fondo to actively fundraise or donate  toward this year’s fundraising ride.

When you register for the Gran Fondo Lake Huron you are signing up for a fundraising mission first and a bike ride second. We strongly encourage participants to fundriase a minimum of $200. It’s easier than you think! Once you start sharing the link with friends, family and co-workers to your personal fundraising page that automatically generates in race roster when your register you’ll be well on your way to meeting or easily surpassing that fundraising goal.

100% of every rider-raised dollar goes directly toward the CT scanner fundraising goal. If fundraising for the CT is complete prior to the event, funds raised go to the next highest medical equipment priority.

You’re Not Just Riding Your Bike, You’re Saving Lives!
