The annual Hike for Hospice fundraising event takes place on Saturday, May 5, 2018 from 8:30 AM to noon.
Hospice Care Ottawa is a community-based charitable organization. Events like Hike for Hospice enable the program to offer palliative and end-of-life services to over 1,500 people annually across the whole Ottawa region. All services are offered at no charge to clients and their families, including bereavement care for those who are grieving the death of a loved one.
Last year’s Hike raised over $100,000 in support of Hospice Care Ottawa and you are requested to help them beat that goal this year!
The 5km hike will be held at Carleton University, 1125 Colonel By Drive, originating at Field House as participants meander along the beautiful campus trails, returning back to the Field House for refreshments, entertainment & the Kids’ Zone!
Residents are encouraged to participate by either registering a hike or donating to an existing hike. To register or for more information, please visit https://www.hospicecareottawa.ca/hike-for-hospice-2018.html
With your help we can make Hike for Hospice 2018 a success and ensure compassionate and quality palliative and end-of-life care is available to those who need it.
