22 Jan HIKE FOR HOSPICE has been rescheduled to Sunday September 13th 2020
In light of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and recommendations by the provincial and federal health authorities for “social distancing” and avoiding mass gatherings, we have decided to reschedule our Hike for Hospice event, which was originally planned for Sunday, May 3rd. We have chosen Sunday, September 13th for the 2020 Hike for Hospice event. We continue to monitor the situation and will take direction from provincial health authorities.
Join us for the Hike/Walk for Hospice Sunday, September 13th, 2020 at Mission Point Park, Davis Bay.
HIKE/WALK FOR HOSPICE is a joyful celebration with entertainment, food and a short hike/walk along the Davis Bay seawall, uniting people of all ages and backgrounds who support our work in the community. This annual national event takes place in cities across Canada.
Most importantly, it is the main annual fundraiser for the Sunshine Coast Hospice Society. Our programs and services depend on the generosity and support of businesses, organizations, and individuals in our community. All funds raised stay on the Sunshine Coast and are used to provide our programs and services.
Put together a team of friends and family, challenge your co-workers, or participate as an individual to help support end-of-life care in our community. This is a fun, non-competitive family-friendly event. Dogs are welcome.
Last year we raised over $46,000: let’s exceed that this year!
