What is the Hike for Hospice?

The Hike for Hospice is a nationwide event hosted by hospice and palliative care organizations. This event occurs annually on the first Sunday of May and kicks off National Palliative Care Week. The hike helps build awareness and raise funds to ensure individuals, and their family members, facing end of life situations receive support at no charge.
The hike is also a way to celebrate and honour our loved ones in a special and meaningful way.

100% of the funds raised by Hike for Hospice Huntsville
