Join us this July 10th by registering for our 2022 Bike-A-Thon and raising funds for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing in BC

 
We are back but we have changed!  This year our ride will be a circular route around Vancouver, Richmond, and Steveston.  We will start our ride from the Terminal City Club in Downtown Vancouver, around Stanley Park, out to UBC, over the Arthur Laing Bridge to Richmond, on to Steveston, and back to Vancouver.  The ride will be 100Km with checkpoints every 20 Km.  You will return to the Terminal City Club for a light lunch, rest, and relaxation followed by our Celebration Banquet.  
 
Help us raise funds for a great cause by registering and inviting your friends, business associates and
family members to donate to the Rotary Hearing Foundation on your behalf.

DID YOU KNOW?

In BC, over 50,000 adults and children are deaf and over 400,000 have severe hearing loss!

The Rotary Club of Vancouver Bike-A-Thon is an annual fundraising event in support of the Deaf and Hard of Hearing in British Columbia. This event is celebrating its 37th Anniversary on July 10th, 2022.  Since its inception, we have raised over $3.6 million and have had a major impact on the lives of many children and adults who suffer from hearing loss. 

Here is 5-year-old Janelle Milne, who was born deaf, when she first received her cochlear implant in 2001 - Janelle.  Several years later Global News broadcast an update on Janelle - Update.

These funds have been used to support Cochlear Implant Research at UBC, to establish the Rotary Hearing Centre at UBC Hospital, and the BC Rotary Hearing and Balance Centre at St. Paul’s Hospital.  In addition, grants have been made to BC Children’s Hospital, Children’s Hearing and Speech Centre of BC, The Hearing Foundation of Canada, the BC Family Hearing Resource Centre, the UBC School of Audiology & Speech Sciences, and the Vancouver Hearing Centre to name just a few.
