The Hike for Hospice is an annual nation-wide event hosted by Canadian hospices and palliative care organizations. It builds awareness and raises funds to ensure that hospice palliative care and support is available – at no charge – to all people living with a life-threatening illness, and their loved ones.
Participants in the Hike for The Kensington Hospice have a choice of a 2- or 5-km, non-competitive memorial and awareness walk through the local community in Toronto. The event is a fun and inspiring gathering of people who care about their community and celebrating people living with life-limiting illness.
All of the funds raised at the hike will help to ensure we can continue to provide exceptional, holistic end-of-life care to the individuals who call the hospice home, while helping their loved ones find peace and comfort at a difficult time.
The hospice receives provincial funding through the Toronto Central Community Care Access Centre for nursing and personal support care. We rely on the generosity of individual and corporate donors, as well as fundraising events such as the hike, to fund the other vital services we provide at no cost. These services include social work, spiritual care, music therapy, nutritional care, and bereavement support, as well as volunteer training and coordination.
