I am excited to be participating in Hike for Hospice Foothills!
I've had the honour of working for this organization for almost 10 years. It was the people I work with, those that have cared for, and their families that inspired me to carry on my education to become a registered nurse. It's my opportunity to give back, and you can help!
Hike for Hospice is a unique, national fundraising event held across Canada that brings together organizations working collectively in hospice palliative care to raise funds and awareness in their community! The money I raise from the hike will go directly to supporting palliative care programs and support services at the Foothills Country Hospice Society.
Since opening their doors in January 2008, the Foothills Country Hospice Society has provided compassionate, end-of-life care to more than 1000 patients and their loved ones.
Did you know?
- 59% of patients they serve come from Calgary, and 41% come from surrounding Foothills communities.
- The Foothills Country Hospice Society's annual operating budget is $2.8 million. AHS covers 59% and the Hospice is tasked with raising the remaining $1.2 million.
With your support, you'll help to ensure the Foothills Country Hospice Society can continue providing compassionate, end-of-life and bereavement care to patients and their loved ones.
Donating is easy and it will only take you a few minutes! Thank you for your support!
