Due to the current situation we are all facing with COVID-19, the Hike for Hospice will look very differently this year - but the need for your support remains the same. Your generous support directly funds the programs and services that we offer through Hospice House. Our clinical and administrative staff have continued to work each and every day throughout the evolving pandemic offering compassionate en-of-life care.
During the month of June, as you practice social distancing, we ask that you think of Hospice Fredericton on your daily walks. After you register yourself or your team, share your fundraising page on social media to encourage friends and family to show their support, post a photo of who you are walking in memory of, tag Hospice Fredericton in your posts and use #HikeForHospiceFred2020. You can also record your own video during your daily walks and share it on your Facebook!
