When you Cycle 4 St. Joe’s, you are supporting the critical needs at St. Joseph’s Health Centre. This includes an ongoing transformation to ensure our patient care facilities will improve the experience for everyone who comes through our doors. In the past, this ride has helped fund critical priorities like the first phase of the Emergency Department redevelopment that opened in the fall, innovative diagnostic tools and surgical equipment, and even new spaces for patient care like a new suite for pre-surgery procedures.

Calling all team captains...
Thank you for registering to be a team captain! Did you know that people who register to be a part of a team raises 70% more funds than those registered as an individual? We encourage you to continue recruiting more members within your network to join your team this fall! Below are some additional ways you can ask people to join your team and be a part of the St. Joe’s community!
Use your social network
Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn are all amazing ways to spread the word about your ride. Ask your team to do the same. To help get you started, check out our sample social media posts and suggested hashtags in the Social Media Toolkit. Thank you for helping spread the word!
You probably have a larger network than you think! Encourage your team to ask. Friends, Family, Colleagues, Clubs, Teams, Alumni Groups, Neighbors, School Community, Religious Groups, Book Club, Volunteer Groups, Business Vendors/ Partners etc. Communicate the way you normally would with each group. If you and your family usually chat on WhatsApp send them an invite and a link in the chat instead of an email, your response rate may increase this way!
Just Ask and Don’t Be Afraid To Follow Up!
People need to be asked to take action, even if they have an interest in joining it feels good to be asked to be a part of a group! You might be surprised at how many people were waiting for you to just ask!
Send Thank You Notes!
It’s a simple thing to do, but also one of the most powerful. Say thank you to everyone who supports your team. Send emails, post thank you messages on social media, and thank people in person.
