In normal times, we would have gathered together at Fish Creek Provincial Park for our 5 km hike to raise funds and awareness for the clients, patients, and families of Hospice Calgary. Instead, for the second year, Hike for Hospice Calgary participants walked 5km in their neighbourhoods or on their favourite trails whenever it was convenient during the event’s ten days.
Many clients got creative about how and where they hiked. One Hospice Calgary client who had to delay his wife’s Celebration of Life due to gathering restrictions, so he decided to honour her by hiking up Prairie Mountain on May 1st.
On behalf of the clients we serve, we want to THANK YOU for participating in the 16th Annual Hike for Hospice Calgary. Because of the generosity of more than 300 hikers, sponsors and supporters like you, we’ve raised $110,000 to date.
