The Bluewater International Granfondo and the Bluewater Health Foundation have supported the making of this documentary film promoting the community.
Granfondo committee chair Ken MacAlpine said the film is about living well and dying well in Sarnia-Lambton.
“The living well part, with the cycling events we’ve created, is encouraging people to be healthy and live well. As for the dying well, between St. Joseph’s Hospice and Bluewater Health, we feel that palliative care is looked after here as good as anywhere else in Canada,” said MacAlpine. “What we’re looking at is an inspiring documentary that tells the story of a community coming together to mount a world class granfondo to support hospice palliative care providers by advancing the knowledge base through continued education.”
Health Foundation Executive Director Kathy Alexander said since partnering with the cycling event in 2016 for the inaugural race, it’s allowed the hospital to spread their palliative care story.
