Hike for Hospice 2020
Hospice Prince Edward Foundation
Come Hike with Us!
Each year, Hospices across the country participate in the "Hike for Hospice". The Hike is a national campaign aimed to raise much-needed funds for hospice palliative care in Canada, and to increase awareness of the services, supports and benefits that Hospice Palliative Care offers those who are ill, dying and grieving.
This year Hospice Prince Edward and our wonderful community members will Hike again for our 9th year on Saturday May 2nd, 2020 to ensure that the residents of Prince Edward County will have access to the quality of care they not only need but deserve through their life journey.
Location: Prince Edward Community Centre
Date: Saturday May 2nd, 2020
Opening Ceremony and Warm-Up: 10am
Hike Begins: 10:30am
All are welcome to join us, and to raise support for Hospice Prince Edward! There is great fun to be had along with live music and prizes up for grabs!
Put a team together, and challenge another team!
Thanks to our Hike for Hospice sponsors, 100% of the funds raised through the Hike for Hospice in Prince Edward County will remain in our area.
The money raised through the Hike is used in many ways, including:
Providing high-quality, supportive palliative care in our 3 bedroom residence
Planning with loved ones for a team approach to care
To train & support our visiting volunteers who visit palliative clients in Prince Edward County
And to provide ongoing grief & bereavement support for Prince Edward County families and friends.
Each participant is asked to raise funds by way of pledges through an online giving page or through cash/cheque donations using our pledge forms which can be downloaded here.
