This year, cyclists can Pedal with Purpose in aid of Knysna Hospice.
For many sick Knysna residents, adults and children alike, the free care they receive from Hospice is the only care they get. You can help by registering as a charity entrant for one of the Knysna Cycle Tour events. It costs more, but Knysna Hospice will make sure you get a whole lot more in return, including preferential seeding and an awesome goodie bag that includes a good quality cycle shirt!

Knysna Hospice in numbers
Hospice provides free care and support to people suffering from chronic or terminal illnesses. These patients are from the entire local community and for many of them, Hospice care is the only assistance they receive.
In order for our Hospice to function effectively, it needs an annual budget of R5 million. A substantial portion of this budget is raised by volunteers who are part of the Hospice Events Team.
On an average month, this is the work undertaken by Knysna Hospice in numbers:
- 1300 patients
- 7070 visits
- 13,864 km travelled
- R1,500 cost per patient
- R0 – cost to patient
