Hike for Hospice

Hike for Hospice returns…in-person! Save the date for Sunday, September 22, 2024

We are so excited to share that Hike for Hospice will be returning as an in-person event on Sunday, September 22, 2024 in Millenium Park from 9am to 1pm.

Participants will be encouraged to fundraise in the months leading up to Hike, culminating in an opportunity to connect with other Hike participants at the in-person event. However, if you would prefer to participate virtually, that’s okay too!

For over twenty years, Hospice Peterborough’s annual Hike for Hospice has been bringing together passionate individuals and teams who want to keep end-of-life and bereavement support free in our community, while often offering a space to remember and honour loved ones who have died.

Registration will officially open in June 2024, but for now, please save the date for Sunday, September 22, 2024.


Death often brings a financial burden, which is why Hospice Peterborough is dedicated to providing our programs and services – free of charge.

Generous donations from individuals, businesses and foundations make our care possible. Your support helps to ensure that we can continue to provide support to people in our community living with life-threatening illness or grieving the loss of a loved one.

Hospice Peterborough receives funding from the Ministry of Health and relies on our community to provide 43% of our total operating budget.


Volunteers are the heart and soul of Hospice Peterborough.

Every year volunteers spend hundreds of hours to help Hospice Peterborough with fundraising events.

As a volunteer, you can share your time and skills, learn new skills, meet new friends, and make a difference.
