Hike for Hospice Palliative Care 2009 fundraising website is now closed and will re-open February 1, 2010!!



Participation and enthusiasm was at its highest rate ever for Hike for Hospice Palliative Care, as were the funds raised.  Over $1 million dollars were raised at 97 different Hike sites throughout Canada. Thanks to the generous support of founding sponsor The GlaxoSmithKline Foundation as well as Bayshore Home Health and Wyeth, all proceeds remain in the local Hike site community.

With over 50 hike site locations from across Canada using the on-line fundraising website the funds raised on-line tripled from 2008. This year there was over $300.000 raised with the on-line fundraising system.

The next Hike for Hospice Palliative Care is planned for May 2, 2010. Organizations interested in signing up for the on-line fundraising website or Hike 2010 may contact Linda Truglia at the Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association at 1-800-668-2785 ext. 228 or
