WHEN: 9am – 12pm on Sunday, May 7, 2017
WHAT: 5km, family fun, pet-friendly walk to support people living with a terminal illness
WHY: To raise awareness about palliative care and funds for hospice care in your community
When you participate in Hike for Hospice you will be joining thousands of others across Canada, hiking in support of hospice palliative care or in memory of a loved one. Hospice palliative care provides physical, psychological, social, spiritual and practical support to people living with life-threatening illness, their loved ones and the bereaved. Your fundraising dollars will go towards providing physical and emotional care to the terminally ill and ongoing bereavement support after the death of a loved one.
Each year this pledge-based, national, annual family event takes place on the first Sunday of May and raises funds to support people living with a terminal illness and their loved ones. The purpose of the 5km hike is not only to raise much needed funds, but to raise awareness of the many challenges faced by hospice palliative care and to promote the wonderful work that all volunteers and professionals in the field perform daily.
