“I am pleased to announce that I will be hiking virtually to support the Dundas County Hospice Hike for Hospice event during the month of May. To keep everyone safe, I will be walking through my own neighbourhood to help raise funds for the vital programs of practical and emotional support that DCH offers to those who have a life threatening illness, are at end-of-life or who are caregiving or grieving. I hope you are able to support my/our walk with a pledge of any amount. You can make an online pledge with Canada Helps https://www.canadahelps.org/en/charities/dundas-county-hospice/ choosing Hike for Hospice as the specific fund and put my name in the message box. Or you can mail a cheque made out to Dundas County Hospice to 4353 CR 31, PO Box 278, Williamsburg, ON K0C 2H0. Donations of $20 or more will receive a tax receipt. Please put my name on the memo line.
Deadline for pledges is May 31st. Thank you so much for supporting my hike and Dundas County Hospice; your gift will make a difference to those who use the services of the Hospice.
