“I am riding to help improve the health of mothers and their newborns in rural Zimbabwe. The 500-plus kilometres from Burlington to Ottawa over five days will be my toughest cycling challenge ever.
I’m doing this to raise money for training hospital workers later this year: Like a famous king from long ago: I will not offer to God that which cost me nothing.”


Wally Boonstra

“I am riding for the Gutu Mission Hospital because it is a mission like the work Dr. Jean Chamberlain does in other parts of Africa. Dr. Chamberlain delivered both my beautiful grandchildren in Canada. I am intrigued by the work done in Africa to improve the lives of mothers and infants as well as outcomes. As a Christian, I have no medical training but I will do my part raising funds for the Gutu Mission Hospital.”

Gary Aikema

“I’m joining the ride for the Gutu Maternity hospital because I know the need for improved service. When mother’s lives are compromised with what we in the western world consider to be a virtually risk free procedures, I feel compelled to involve myself, at least in the smallest way , in God’s service to provide some help.”

“I am doing this ride because, cycling for a good cause makes cycling even better. Knowing that I’m helping mothers and newborn babies in Zimbabwe.”

“I am riding to be able to raise money to help people in need of better health care, while at the same time improving my own health and getting to spend some quality time with other Christians who are doing the same.
‘But they who wait for the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.’ Is. 40:31.”

Tracy Robb

“I’m riding for the Gutu Maternity Hospital in Zimbabwe. I’ll be helping to raise much needed funds so that the families in that community could experience child birth as well as medical complications without fear and instead with the help of doctors and needed equipment. Hebrews 13:16.”

Chi Mandivenga

“I am riding for mothers and babies in Zimbabwe to have a better chance at survival. The project at Gutu Mission Hospital is particularly important to me because my mother was born at this facility and I want to support others in the area to get access to the best services for delivery and care of their children. ‘To whom much is given, much is required,’ and this is one way to use the resources, skills and experience that I have to change the outcomes for mothers and their babies in my home country.”

*Chi will be riding on the first day of the event.

We are taking to the road on Sept 12 – 16, 2022 to cycle from Burlington to Ottawa because we want to make a difference in maternal and infant healthcare in Zimbabwe at the Gutu Mission Hospital.
