Hospice Care Ottawa is hosting their annual fundraiser Hike for Hospice Care Ottawa at the Carleton University Field House on Saturday, May 5, 2018.  Registration starts at 8:30 a.m., opening ceremonies begin at 9:40 a.m., and the hike begins at 10:00 a.m.  There will be many activities before, during, and after the hike including music, refreshments, and the popular Kids’ Zone.

Hike for Hospice Care Ottawa is a major fundraiser for Hospice Care Ottawa, a community-based charitable, non-profit organization.  It is thanks to a small dedicated staff, many volunteers and generous donors that they can offer palliative and end-of-life care, at no charge, to individuals living with a life-limiting illness and their families.  Programs include weekly in-home visiting by a trained volunteer, Day Hospice gatherings, caregiver and bereavement support, as well as round the clock residential hospice care in a comfortable, home-like setting.

With your help Hospice Care Ottawa can reach the goal of $100,000 which will provide over 200 days of individual care in a residential hospice.

If quality palliative and end-of-life care is important to you, join us for this much-loved event.  Visit www.hospicecareottawa  or phone 613-260-2906 ext. 222 to register for Hike for Hospice Care Ottawa or to donate.
