Raise Funds for Your Community 

Every year, thousands of ‘hikers’ participate in events put on by their local hospice palliative care organizations. All funds raised during the Hike for Hospice Palliative Care stay in the community where they were raised.

How it Works 

Traditionally held on the first Sunday in May, the Hike for Hospice Palliative Care primarily follows a walk-a-thon format. However, each community puts their individual spin on the day’s activities!  

Get involved and support local organizations that provide access to quality hospice palliative care services!
