Join Hike for Hospice 2021!
Slowly and carefully, the world is beginning to open up again. As we cautiously look ahead to September, we are pleased to offer another year of the week-long, self led Hike for Hospice – Hike Your Way from September 11-17th, 2021.
Eleanor hikes because they understand what these programs and supports can mean to families:
“I was on staff at Hospice Peterborough for 10 years and stayed for another 10 years, working hard with a great team to build our new Care Centre. It was a labour of love! I know from personal experience as a palliative care nurse and as a daughter of a parent who died at the May Court Hospice in Ottawa that Hospice care can lighten the load for families who are dealing with a life limiting illness from the time of diagnosis.”
Who will you hike for?
Hospice Peterborough has remained open and operating throughout the pandemic. The end-of-life residence has been available and open to visiting family members, in line with public health regulations and guidelines. Many programs pivoted to virtual to ensure our critical care, such as grief support, were still there for those who needed them.
And now, we need you!
More than ever, we want to provide a meaningful event that supports families and friends who have lost loved ones, while bringing in much-needed funds to ensure programs and services continue to be available, and free of charge, as the need in our community grows.
YOU can make this happen through your participation in Hike for Hospice.
Hike for Hospice supports end of life care, life-threatening illness, and bereavement in our community.
The funds raised are invested back into the community to deliver 26+ programs and services offered by Hospice Peterborough.
