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 .  Once again this year, 2021, looks a little different.  Due to health restrictions and keeping our community safe you have the opportunity to Create Your Own Hike.
The hike will still help 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 Hospice Huntsville stay in our community

 

Create Your Own Hike – Every Step You Take Makes a Difference!

When you participate in Hike for Hospice Huntsville’s Create Your Own Hike Event from May 2- May 31, 2021 you will be hiking in support of National Palliative Care Week.  The funds raised by our participants stay in our community and help us continue to provide care and support free of charge to individuals who are facing end of life situations. This care and support are also extended to the individuals’ families and caregivers and is provided in a setting of their choice.

 

When?
Hike Dates:

Sunday, May 2, 2021  to Monday May 31, 2021

Where?
There are 2 Options:

You can choose a setting of your choice:  Walk a trail, Stroll your neighborhood,  Ride your bike, Run on your treadmill, Walk the dog, Go solo or get your social bubble together and create a team.
2.  If you are not comfortable in these challenging times to get out and about, then be an Armchair Hiker and still raise funds for Hospice Huntsville.

Why?
The Hike is a way to celebrate and honour our loved ones in a special and meaningful way.
We rely on fundraising & donation dollars to ensure our ongoing operations.  Events like the Hike for Hospice Huntsville contribute to 60% of our operating costs that must be secured each year.  With the incredible support of our community, we can continue to offer vital programs to support high-quality end of life care needs at no cost to recipients.

Who?
You!  Whether it is a family member, friend, neighbour, co-worker or you…we will all need hospice at some point in our lives
