Beth Donovan Hospice is once again hosting its Sixth Annual Hike for Hospice event to take place on Sunday, May 29 at the Ferguson Forest in Kemptville, ON.
“The event helps us to promote awareness of the hospice and its mission to provide compassionate care for the dying and the bereaved. It is critical that anyone in the community who may need support with death, dying and the grief that accompanies it knows that they can call us for help. We are exceptionally grateful to the participants for helping us fulfill our mission.” As quoted by Dawn Rodger, Executive Director Beth Donovan Hospice.
The hike is open to everyone and has options for all level of hikers and runners from a 1 km stroll, 3 km walk/run in the woods to a full 5km hike/run. “Hike for Hospice” allows Beth Donovan Hospice to join the hundreds of other hospices across Canada raising funds and awareness for hospice palliative care. The opportunity to work with our community partners and local area residents to raise funds and awareness is invaluable in furthering our cause.
Through the Hike for Hospice event, Beth Donovan Hospice has raised over $18 000 in the past five years. Please come out and join us, registration starts at 12:30 walk/run sets off at 1 pm.
Together we can make a difference!
