Hike for Hospice
Date: June 25, 2023
Location: SilverStar Mountain Resort
Time: 10 AM (Registration) 11 AM (Hike Starts)
The ‘Hike for Hospice’ is a unique national fundraising event across Canada that brings together organizations working in hospice palliative care to raise funds and awareness in their community! Each year, thousands of hikers, bikers, runners and walkers will participate in events put on by their local hospice palliative care organizations. All funds raised during the Hike for Hospice 2023 stay within the community in which they were raised.
The North Okanagan Hospice Society has partnered with Silver Star Mountain this year and we are looking forward to encouraging ‘hikers’, bikers, and strollers of all ages and abilities, to collect pledges and come out for this fun community event on June 25th, 2023. The hike will take place on Silver Star mountain’s opening weekend and there will be different trails to choose from depending on your abilities and whether you are walking or biking. The distance will be dependent on your preference and whether you on wheels or not. The crowd will enjoy opening remarks from special guest speakers prior to starting the circle routes.
To celebrate our success there will be refreshments and entertainment before and following the walk at Silver Star. We are excited to be up at Silver Star for its opening weekend, and we have the following competitions to win prizes:
- Corporate Challenge: Get you and your colleagues together and raise funds as a team. Top raisers will get a trophy.
- Best Dressed Team: Best dressed team will get a prize.
- Best Dressed Pet: Best dressed pet will get a prize, so please bring your 4-legged friends along for the day.
We encourage you to form your team or register individually and then hike/walk/bike/stroll or roll wherever and whenever you like to participate! You can even participate virtually! If you are unable to join us for the fun please consider supporting another team or by providing a donation directly to NOHS.
