Local Hospice Event for the Whole Family! Sun May 27th Annual Hike or Bike for Hospice!

27/04/18

Local Hospice Event for the Whole Family!

April 27, 2018 | Collingwood | For Immediate Release | The biggest and best fundraiser of the year for Hospice Georgian Triangle (HGT) is fast approaching and everyone is invited.

In just under 30 days our community will come together to Hike or Bike for Hospice Georgian Triangle and help raise awareness and funds for hospice palliative care.  On Sunday, May 27th families, work colleagues, friends and neighbours will be setting out from locations in Collingwood and Wasaga Beach to Hike or Bike for Hospice.  They will be hiking, biking, pushing strollers, remembering loved ones and having a whole lot of fun.

Starting points for the day are the Collingwood Curling Club and the Wasaga Beach RecPlex. Guided Hikes will take place on the Collingwood Trails and along the shore of Georgian Bay in Wasaga Beach, as well as guided Bike rides of either 5km (ideal for families), or 20km in Collingwood only.  Pick your favourite way to get active and help raise much needed dollars along the way.

Lunch is provided to all participants by HGT’s community partners Sobeys and Boston Pizza. For a minimum donation of $20 per person, you too can take part! Live music, kids’ entertainment, outdoor activity…we’ve got your day covered for the whole family.

Check-in for the event on May 27th starts at 9:30am in both locations. You can sign-up to participate or donate to the event online at: www.hospicegeorgiantriangle.com

Last year, the Leal family of Collingwood and their many friends gathered in a BIG way to pay tribute to Scott.  HGT was privileged to care for Scott and his family at Campbell House and we were honoured to receive the support of this loving group at the 2017 Hike or Bike for Hospice Georgian Triangle (photo below courtesy of Dave West Photography).

All money raised through this annual event will stay in our community, directly supporting individuals living with a life-limiting illness, and those who are caregiving or bereaved.  This is an opportunity to get your family and friends together, Hike or Bike in memory of someone you love, and raise money through donations and pledges to support your hospice - Campbell House. Help us to continue to provide the highest quality palliative care to anyone in our community who needs it, not only at end of life but throughout the disease journey.

We look forward to seeing everyone in Collingwood and Wasaga Beach on Sunday, May 27th, 2018.
