Virtual Hikes for Hospice Around Alberta

May 3, 2020 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

What happens when your biggest fundraiser of the year is threatened at a time when your industry, perpetually underfunded, is busier than ever due to a pandemic?

Typically in the first week of May, to celebrate National Hospice Palliative Care Week and to raise money, Hike for Hospice events are held around Alberta.

This year is different in many ways but you can still support your local hospice palliative care organization.

Some groups are holding Virtual Hikes for Hospice. Get creative and walk on your treadmill or even better, get out for some fresh air on a physically distanced hike. Go with your household members, take a photo to share with your local society.

If your local hospice palliative care society isn’t hosting a Virtual Hike for Hospice, you can still make a donation! Snap a photo of your private hike and send along a supportive note – it will be greatly appreciated.
