Between September 2 and 5, 2021, the most awaited sports event of the Hospices of Hope Moldova brand took place - Hospice Bike Tour 2021. The project is dedicated to cycling lovers who want to combine sport with a cause that deserves support. Thus, this year each of the participants, in addition to the challenge of cycling over 400 km through valleys and hills, set out to collect at least EUR 500 for incurable patients in the regions of the Republic of Moldova.
Each year, the main purpose of the event is to raise funds to support the development of free palliative care services and to maintain activity within the teams that are part of the Hospices of Hope Moldova Network in the regions of Orhei, Soroca, Taraclia and Ocnita.
This year, 25 cyclists covered 440 km on the following route: Chisinau - Hancesti - Cimislia - Comrat - Taraclia - Cahul - Cantemir - Leova - Hancesti - Draguseni - Chisinau. The route was a circular one in order to reach the palliative care team from Taraclia and to come back collecting funds for the over 200 beneficiaries per month who need palliative care and are part of the Hospices of Hope Moldova network.
This year, the amount of MDL 404,794 financial donations and services / goods was collected, of which 6% were organizational expenses. The accumulated amount will be distributed proportionally to the mobile palliative teams and will cover approximately 1300 palliative visits at home.
Hospice Bike Tour is a charity event organized by Hospices of Hope Moldova, the funds collected after the event being used to maintain free palliative care services provided to people suffering from incurable diseases and / or life-limiting conditions in the regions of Ocnita, Orhei, Soroca and Taraclia.
