Thank You

On Sunday, the community turned out to support an event that began as a personal journey for a local Portland father and community stalwart, Paul Beattie. The Rotary Club of Portland’s Beats Cycle For Hope has now become a beloved annual event supported by hundreds of people.


Many riders young and old enjoyed the beautiful warm autumn morning to ride to Bridgewater Bay for our 2017 effort.


The event was, once again, a great success, and we hope all those who participated enjoyed it as much as we did.


The Rotary Club of Portland would like to thank the Portland community for their generous contributions to the “Beats Cycle for Hope” event.


Over $10,000 was raised which will be directed to programs that support local cancer patients and their families.


Support was provided by nearly 200 riders and their donations; the many sponsors, both business and private, who gifted items large and small for the Charity Auction and those who purchased the auction items.




We now begin the planning for the 2018 event and hope everyone will join us again.
