We Need Your Support

 

To our amazing supporters,

These are extraordinary times and like you, Crossroads Hospice Society is working to adapt.  Our Inlet Hospice remains open as we continue to meet our community’s needs in this ever-changing, turbulent world. Our limited front-line staff are doing their best to keep our patients safe and provide comfort and care. With our Thrift Store temporarily closed for the safety of our volunteers, shoppers, and staff, we are feeling the financial pinch.  We know many of you are as well.

In normal times, Crossroads would be gearing up for our annual Hike for Hospice. These are not normal times, yet we still need the funds raised by our Hike to cover the costs of providing compassionate, quality care for people with life-limiting illness and grief support for our community. The Hike is one of our two major annual fundraising events and a key source of funding for the hospice. It is with great sadness that we have had to cancel our Hike for Hospice event promptly and unexpectedly. Currently, we need your help and support more than ever.

With this in mind, we invite you to join our first ever VIRTUAL Hike for Hospice. Our Virtual Hike for Hospice is an online fundraising initiative that allows you to register and hold your own symbolic ‘walk’ and still fundraise for an important cause. You can also support us by making a general donation here. Every dollar makes a difference.

By participating in our Virtual Hike for Hospice, you will be able to stay active, healthy, and safe in the comfort of your home while being a part of a fun activity. Hop on your elliptical, treadmill, or stationary bike… run up and down the stairs…or turn on your favorite YouTube workout. From now until Sunday, May 3rd 2020, register through our website http://hike4hospice.ca/ and pledge to run or walk 5KM, and collect donations for your participation. Leverage your personalized donation page to spread the word.

You choose when and how you ‘walk’ while joining hundreds of Canadians coming together to say we are #CHSHikingForHospice2020!

On Sunday May 3rd, we will have a virtual celebration starting at 10 a.m. Crossroads Hospice Society will be streaming on YouTube Live to interact with you, thank our participants, volunteers, and sponsors, and announce the money raised for vital programming.

Thank you for your understanding and support of Crossroads Hospice Society.

A heartfelt thanks,

Crossroads Hospice Society Team
