Hike for Hospice

Who will you hike for in 2023? Hike for Hospice returns September 10 – 17!

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. 2023 will feature another ‘Hike Your Way’ event, in which ‘Hikers’ are welcome to walk, run, cycle, or move in whatever way suits them, to raise funds for those seeking the care of Hospice Peterborough.

Events will take place virtually between September 10 – 17. More details to come!

More information on the event, registration, and fundraising can all be accessed at

Giving to Hospice Peterborough

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.

Get Involved!

Volunteers are the heart and soul of Hospice Peterborough.
