This year, there will be two hikes in support of Bethell Hospice – Sunday, May 4 in Inglewood and Saturday, May 10 in Bolton. The websites for the two hike locations have been combined this year, so be sure to select the location of your choice when you register.

Participating is easy – just register online at www.bethellhospice.org. As a returning participant, you will be able to access all your information from last year to streamline your registration and help you in gathering pledges. All you need is your username and password from last year. If you do not have your username, simply signup as a new participant.

To register, click on the link below the Hike for Bethell Hospice logo. On the next screen, click ‘Register Now’. If you have your username and password from last year, select ‘Returning Participant, Click Here’ and enter your username and password. Otherwise, select your type of registration from the options listed below.

Each $25 registration includes a hike t-shirt and barbeque lunch, and is fully tax-receiptable. To guarantee your preferred t-shirt size,please sign up online by April 18.

Please join us again this year. By participating or donating to Hike for Bethell Hospice, you help make it possible for residents and their families to receive gentle care and support at the time they need it most. As I’m sure you know, there are no fees to stay at Bethell Hospice, or to participate in any of our Community Care Programs. No one is ever denied care due to financial situation. Care costs at Bethell Hospice are only partially covered by our Ontario health care system. Each year, 40% of the funds necessary to operate Bethell Hospice (or $700,000) must be raised through fundraising. With your help, our goal is to raise over $100,000 through the two hikes again this year.

Thank you again so very much. With your support, we are looking forward to 2 more fabulous hikes on May 4 & 10!
