2020 Hike for Hospice
During this time of uncertainty and with the rapidly changing recommendations about how interact with one another, we invite you to support an essential cause while following the social distancing guidelines put in place by the authorities.
Join thousands of people across Canada who are Hiking to raise public awareness for hospice palliative care. This major annual fundraising initiative will help advance the hospice palliative care initiatives right here in Manitoba. Though the event is a national initiative, all money raised stays here helping the dying and bereaved in our own community.
Sign up now and collect pledges using the tools available on your participant’s page. Online donations will be automatically added to your Hike total. There is also a pledge form that can be printed out for those who would rather send their support through the mail.
All registered participants raising a minimum of $50 in pledges will be entered to win our Mother’s Day Prize Package.
SHARE YOUR HIKE
Run, walk or roll 4kms, or 5,000 steps, during Hospice Palliative Care Week, May 4-10, 2020.
Then let us know how you're participating by joining the event on Facebook and sharing your photos and stories. Create a team and challenge your friends, family or colleagues to ‘step up’ and join us in keeping our distance while coming together for a great cause.
Join us on our Facebook Page on Mother’s Day at 3:00pm CST when we wrap up this year’s unique event with special messages from our Executive Director and Sponsors. We’ll also announce our top fundraiser and the Mother’s Day Prize Package winner!
What is Hospice Palliative Care?
Hospice palliative care provides physical, psychological, social, spiritual and practical support to people living with life-limiting illness, their loved ones and the bereaved.
- 80% of Canadians say they want quality hospice at the end of life, yet less than 15% have access to it.
- Hospice palliative care is currently underfunded and under-recognized.
