Hike for Hospice is a national movement in Canada to build awareness of the need for hospice palliative care as well as to raise the much-needed funds to provide these services to Canadians.

In our community of Grey Bruce, hospice care is provided at no cost for the residents of Chapman House and their families. By taking part in the annual Hike for Hospice, YOU are helping to provide the hospice care needed by our friends and neighbors in Grey Bruce. The Ontario government provides less than 50% of operating costs for hospices and, as such, we must raise $1.5 Million annually to provide the end-of-life and palliative care our friends and neighbours need and deserve.

This year, organizers are excited to announce the return of an in-person hike and BBQ! Since 2020, Grey Bruce Hospice has been hosting Hike for Hospice remotely — and they're finally excited to see everyone back in person.

Join them on May 27th from 11 am - 2 pm at Harrison Park in downtown Owen Sound. They will be exploring the multiple hiking/walking/rolling options throughout the park as well as enjoying a BBQ together. All are welcome.

Sign-ups are welcome on the morning of. Just come with your appetite, a comfy pair of shoes, and a few friends.

At South Grey News, we endeavour to bring you truthful and factual, up-to-date local community news in a quick and easy-to-digest format that’s free of political bias. We believe this service is more important today than ever before, as social media has given rise to misinformation, largely unchecked by big corporations who put profits ahead of their responsibilities.

South Grey News does not have the resources of a big corporation. We are a small, locally owned-and-operated organization. Research, analysis and physical attendance at public meetings and community events requires considerable effort. But contributions from readers and advertisers, however big or small, go a long way to helping us deliver positive, open and honest journalism for this community.

Please consider supporting South Grey News with a donation in lieu of a subscription fee and let us know that our efforts are appreciated. Thank you.
