Hike or Bike With Us
Rain or Shine!
May 27, 2018
It's that time of year again! HGT's biggest fundraiser of the year is upon us. It is free to sign up but we ask a minimum donation of $20 per person. Gather your friends, family, co-workers, team members and neighbours for a day of outdoor activities, complimentary lunch, and entertainment for all.
I know you’re all excited about our Hike or Bike fundraiser and are eager to know what we are planning. Our number one goal this year is to raise $100,000 so that we can offer the care and support in our community that Hospice Georgian Triangle is known for.
Last year, we raised $90,000.00, so although this year’s goal is higher, I think that by inviting more people and spreading the word about this fun event, we can make it possible. In the coming weeks, look for more information on our Hike or Bike and invite your friends, family and co-workers to participate and be part of building awareness in our community and contributing to the care for our friends and family when they need it the most.

Hike for Hospice Palliative Care 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! Our HIKE OR BIKE FOR HOSPICE GEORGIAN TRIANGLE is part of this wonderful national event!
- Hospice palliative care aims to relieve suffering, while improving the quality of living and dying.
- Hospice palliative care is not just for the final days or months of life. It’s care that should begin when a life-limiting illness is diagnosed so that individuals and their families are supported as they manage the often complicated journey at the end of life.
- An integrated palliative approach to care is one that focuses on an individual’s need at any given point in time. It can be provided in a hospital, residential hospice, at home, in long-term care homes or in another community setting. Personal values, wishes and desires are considered. Advance Care Planning (www.advancecareplanning.ca), a discussion about individual plans at the end of life, is an important part of an integrated approach to care.
- Hospice palliative care professionals work with the health team you already have, and together they focus on lessening the burdens of suffering, loneliness, and grief for those living with chronic and life-limiting illnesses.
- Hospice palliative care supports families as they navigate the difficulties that can arise when a loved one is struggling with a life-limiting illness. Through hospice palliative care, families can gain a better understanding of a loved one’s wishes, which can ease the way when there are difficult decisions to make.
- Hospice palliative care manages pain and symptoms, and thanks to the important conversations and planning that hospice palliative care encourages, patients can make informed decisions about their own care, ensure that their families understand their goals, and have a better quality of life.
