About Us

In 2015, a group of local cyclists organized a bicycle event now called Bluewater International Granfondo with all proceeds to go to Palliative Care education resulting in the creation of the Bluewater Palliative Care Retreat (BPCR) – a 2 day conference held at a beautiful lakeside resort offering to all involved with hospice and palliative care a time of learning, reflection and connection. Education gives knowledge and confidence which translates into better care of our patients.
