Hike For Hospice
Hike for Hospice is a unique national fundraising event across Canada that brings together organizations working in hospice palliative care to raise funds and awareness in their community! Each year, thousands of ‘hikers’ will participate in events put on by their local hospice palliative care organizations. All funds raised during the Hike for Hospice stay within the community in which they were raised.
In 2019 our Hike for Hospice raised $47,000. The Hike for Hospice in 2020 had to be cancelled due to COVID-19 restrictions. In 2021 our Hike for Hospice will be a virtual event, hiking from home, to keep everyone safe.
Each year we organize the Hike for Hospice through the Kincardine Trails beginning at the Davidson Centre. We cheer people on as we hike together through a 5k hike. Our community participants sign up their teams or hike as individuals and collect pledges from their friends and family.
Our 2021 Hike for Hospice will be a virtual event to celebrate and honour our loved ones in a special and meaningful way. All proceeds will stay in our community and will support Huron Shores Hospice. Click to register on-line below or print off your printable pledge form below and start getting pledges!
