Media Release – The 2021 Virtual Hike for Hospice raised… more than $111,000!

June 22, 2021

Thanks to the incredible efforts of this community, Hospice Simcoe is excited to announce that we surpassed our goal for the 2021 Hike for Hospice. ‘Hikers’ participated by walking, running, biking, dancing and more; collecting pledges to support Hospice Simcoe and in turn raising $111,000. More than 1,000 people donated, helping make our event a success. The Hike for Hospice has become an annual tradition for many families and friends to honour the memories of their loved ones.

“We are very grateful to this year’s Hikers, donors, volunteers and sponsors who helped us not only achieve our $100,000 goal but surpass it. Funds raised by events like Hike for Hospice play an important role in allowing us to serve the community with our Residence and our Community Support programs. Thank you for supporting Hospice Simcoe.”
