Christine Robinson-Jones, a Lion’s head resident, opted to “take a walk around her block” in support of the national Hike for Hospice campaign. Lo and behold that block was 10.5 kilometers! Christine has joined thousands of others across Canada raising funds for hospice palliative care and is a member of the Board of Bruce Peninsula Hospice.

Half way to our goal of $30,000. As many of you know, Bruce Peninsula Hospice is a self-sustaining service right here for those living on the peninsula and trying to manoeuver the realities and challenges of end of life. Without any core funding, we depend on fundraisers like the annual Hike for Hospice and volunteers to carry out our work.

This year, the “virtual” Hike for Hospice is off to a great start. If you are looking to hike, sponsor a friend, make a donation in memory of a loved one, there is still lots of time to get in on the action. You can make a pledge, register as an individual or join a team by going to www.bphospice.ca/hike and to reach out online to friends and family to support you. You can participate in your own way — take a hike, walk, bike, take to the treadmill or other creative ways (while minding physical distancing guidelines). 

Thank you to everyone for supporting this creative, fun and virtual Hike for Hospice! We are going strong! Don’t forget to send us a photo and comment and we will post it on the BPH Virtual Hike for Hospice webpage (send your photo to info@bphospice.ca)
