Every year on the first Sunday in May (May 5, 2013), rain or shine, hospice and palliative care supporters across Canada hike to raise awareness about the cause. Hospice of Greater Halifax Society has been participating annually since 2006 in an effort to raise funds with the goal for enhancing hospice care in our region.
It’s an easy 4-km walk, suitable for everyone; this year there is an option for a longer hike. All participants are welcome and there are refreshments provided at the end of the hike. We encourage participants to register early again this year, as those registering before April, 22 will qualify to have their name in the early bird draw for a prize (last year the prize was an iPod Nano).
There are two ways to register: either online or by paper form – to access either, or to have more information on the hike contact Marguerite at the Hospice Office at 446-0929, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or click here.
