About the Event
We are so excited to welcome our community to come together once again at the Davidson Centre for our 7th Annual Hike for Hospice. Funds raised from our Hike for Hospice will provide quality end-of-life care in our 2-bed hospice and support our Community Programs. 100% of the funds raised stay in our community!
Join us for our Hike for Hospice on Saturday, May 13, 2023. Rain or shine! This year, hike individually, rally together a team of friends and family, join our Corporate Challenge or challenge a friend or co-worker to help raise money for compassionate and dignified end-of-life care in our community. Hike the Kincardine trails with us, starting at the Davidson Centre.
Registration for hikers will start at 9:30 am at the Davidson Centre in Kincardine. We will kickoff the event at 10:00 a.m. at the Davidson Centre. From 10:30 am - 12:30pm, we will hike together and end back at the Davidson Centre at approximately 12:30 for prizes, activities and the announcement of our grand total.
Thanks to our sponsor NPX Innovation, t-shirts will be available for the first 200 in-person hikers this year. Please indicate your size while registering. We will use the size information for ordering purposes. Please be aware t-shirts will be handed out on a first come, first serve basis and therefore we cannot guarantee sizing.
***no registration fee***
Team Challenge Ideas:
Challenge your family members, friends and co-workers to do the Hike for Hospice with you and register as a team. Set a fundraising goal together, and organize fun challenges to reach your goal.

- Challenge other teams to see who can complete their goal first. Post your bragging rights using our hashtag #HikeforHospice
How to Submit Funds:
The easiest way to collect funds is to ask supporters to donate online using your personal or team fundraising page *Please note credit card charges will say HIKE FOR HOSPICE SU not Huron Shores Hospice*. If you wish to use the paper pledge form and collect cash or cheque pledges, please tally your pledges and include your name, email and phone number on the pledge form. Then you can do one of the following within one week of the event:
- Contact us at email@example.com to arrange for a drop off or pick up of your pledge form and money.
- Cheques must be made payable to Huron Shores Hospice and mailed along with your pledge form to: Huron Shores Hospice, Box 250, 24 King Street, Tiverton, ON N0G 2T0
- Please do not send cash in the mail. You can either write a personal cheque for those cash donations, highlighting on your pledge form the name and address of those it is including so that charitable tax donations can be issued directly to the sponsor. Or, you can contact Jana-Leigh Ibbiitson, Community Engagement Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org to make alternate arrangements.
