We can still Hike for Hospice!
Hike for Hospice is an annual tradition that raises funds and awareness for Hospice Care Ottawa.
With the current COVID-19 situation Hospice Care Ottawa has switched to a Virtual Hike! This will ensure our clients, staff, volunteers and supporters are safe while we practice physical distancing. The event will still take place on Saturday, May 9, 2020 and your support will provide end-of-life hospice care at no charge to families. Special care that is much appreciated.
How will the Virtual Hike work?
