The Hike for Hospice Palliative Care is primarily a walk-a-thon model; however, each community puts their own individual spin on the day’s activities! Held on the first Sunday in May each year, the Hike for Hospice Palliative Care does a great deal towards getting Canadians involved and participating for their local organizations who are dedicated to providing good quality access to hospice palliative care services across the country.

The next Hike for Hospice Palliative care is on Sunday, May 2, 2021
