Hike for Hospice Halifax 2020
Take a walk that matters, and support Hospice Halifax!
FUNDRAISING: May 13 - June 27, 2020
EVENT DAY: Saturday, June 27, 2020
Join us for Hike for Hospice, an energizing, family-friendly community walk to support all the great work happening at Hospice Halifax! In light of COVID-19, and to ensure we all stay safe, this year's walk will be VIRTUAL.
What's a virtual walk?
Well it's a real walk and a virtual gathering. You can sign up to participate, and fundraise amongst your peers for Hospice Halifax as done in the past, but come event day on June 27, you (and your quarantine family) will go for a walk within your own neighborhood, and track all the community happenings on social media and our website!
What to expect on EVENT DAY, June 27:
7:00 AM -We will be posting the 'warm up show' on social media as well as the hospicehalifax.ca website. Don't worry, this warm up will remain online all day for you to view just prior to your walk. You don't need to get up this early! This 'warm up show' will include opening remarks from our committee as well an energizing warm up routine that you can follow along with at home to get the blood flowing before you embark on your walk! (There will also be a couple surprises!)
7:00 AM to 7:00 PM - At your leisure, go for your walk! In the past our walk has been 5 km, but set your own route and distance, lace up those sneakers and go! Throughout the day we will be checking in on social media to see everyone in our community out on their walk, and posting some awesome content to root for you! If you feel like sharing, post a picture, video or go live during your walk and use the hashtag #hike4hospicehalifax
7:00 PM - Our Hike for Hospice committee will be going live on social media to announce how much was fundraised by the community, award some virtual prizes and wrap the program up!
Follow along with the hashtag #hike4hospicehalifax on our social media channels!
