The 19th Annual Kawartha Lakes Classic is a charity cycling tour that will be held on Saturday, August 27, 2022 and hosted by the Kawartha Cycling Club.
All proceeds from the Kawartha Lakes Classic will benefit A Place Called Home (APCH) a charitable, non-profit organization that has been providing 24/7 support services to the homeless, and those at risk of becoming homeless, for over 20 years in the City of Kawartha Lakes and Haliburton County. APCH operates a 19-bed emergency shelter for youths, adults, couples and families providing shelter along with meals, laundry facilities and the counselling needed to find permanent housing and supports to help break the cycle of homelessness.
