The Hike for Hospice Palliative Care is a unique national fundraising event across Canada that brings together organizations working in hospice palliative care to raise funds and awareness in their community! Each year, thousands of ‘hikers’ will participate in events put on by their local hospice palliative care organizations. All funds raised during the Hike for Hospice Palliative Care stay within the community in which they were raised.
The Hike for Hospice Palliative Care is primarily a walk-a-thon model; however, each community puts their own individual spin on the day’s activities! Held on the first Sunday in May each year, the Hike for Hospice Palliative Care does a great deal towards getting Canadians involved and participating for their local organizations who are dedicated to providing good quality access to hospice palliative care services across the country.
