The numbers are in from Sunday's Wheel to Heal and they are some of the biggest ever for the annual Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation cycling fundraiser.
Despite the wet weather, 238 people rode the 10 km, 40 km and 80 km courses, raising more than $65,000 for the Port Moody hospital.
Wheel to Heal organizer Karen Horton told The Tri-City News (one of the event sponsors) that all of that money will go directly to buying much-needed medical equipment for the hospital.
"The weather hampered us a bit in the [10 km] family ride but not the die-hards in the 80 km. We also saw growth in the 40 km as well," Horton said.
And the fundraising doesn't end there.
Next Thursday, May 26, the Eagle Ridge Hospital Foundation is hosting its Charity Golf Classic at Swan-e-Set Bay Resort and Country Club in Pitt Meadows. You can register at erhf.ca/golf.
