On Sunday, May 5th, communities across Grey & Bruce will join thousands of people across Canada as they come together in order to raise funds and awareness for hospice palliative care programs and services. Grey Bruce Residential Hospice the owners and operators of Chapman house are more excited than ever to make use of our areas stunning hiking trails in hosting the Grey Bruce Hike for Hospice.
While the Hike is coordinated nationally, due to the generous finan- cial national support of GSK, Amgen, and Bayshore HealthCare, 100% of the funds raised in our community remain here. The funds raised this year by Grey Bruce Residential Hospice will be used to continue to provide compassionate care to residents of Grey/Bruce and their families.
More than 50% of the funds needed to provide the hospice palliative care services provided by Chapman House come from charitable donations which make this annual fundraiser a key component to ensuring the future of our community hospices. The money raised through the Hike provides physical, emotional and social assistance to Grey Bruce resi- dents, their families and loved ones. Grey Bruce Residential Hospice is working towards ensuring that more Canadians, receive the end-of-life care they wish for.
The Grey Bruce Hike for Hospice planning committee have set a goal of topping the over $170,000 that was raised in 2018 and would like to let area businesses and professionals know they have sponsorship opportunities still available. They’d also like to remind interested partic- ipants to ask their employers to consider donation matching.
