The Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association has been monitoring circumstances surrounding Covid-19 with relation to the status of the 2020 Hike for Hospice Palliative Care (HFHPC). With the Hike coming up in May, we are still in uncertain times around the status of the virus and recommendations to be made from public health officials at that time.
It is with this in mind that the CHPCA wishes to communicate that recommendations have been made to all Hike Sites to watch the public health guidelines being used within their provinces and communities and to come up with a contingency plan that best suits the needs and situations of their organizations/communities.
While some Hikes across the country have been cancelled or postponed there are still many Hike Sites that are moving forward with Virtual Hikes within their community. We wish to recognize that each site is doing their upmost to respect social distancing practices and to help curb the spread of Covid-19 while instituting creative solutions to move forward with the 2020 HFHPC.
If you are interested in participating in a Hike for Hospice Palliative Care, please contact your preferred Hike Site to get further details on the status and format of their Hikes.
