June 12th Program

On June 12, it’s time to lace up your sneakers for the BIG DAY! 

This year the choice is yours! Respondents to our survey suggested that 60% of our community will be attending in-person this year.

We know COVID-19 is still a concern, which is why we encourage you to make a choice YOU’RE comfortable with. Attending virtually or in person is a personal decision, it does not impact your ability to raise funds and either way it’ll be a fun day in support of Hospice Halifax.

Follow along on our social media channels!






In-Person Programming

You can participate in the Hike for Hospice program by joining our community group which will be rallying at the South Campus at Saint Mary’s at their ‘Oaks’ venue (directly at the end of Robie Street). with accessible parking onsite and plenty of residential parking in the area. 

The in-person program will include:

  • A chance to get branded up (tattoos, flags and more to show your pride)
  • A high energy warm up
  • A 5km walking route past the hospice and through point pleasant park
  • Several activity and hydration stations throughout the park
  • A post hike BBQ 
  • and more!
We won’t know who the top fundraising teams and individuals are until the end of the day, so you’ll have to tune into our virtual program for our final announcements!

Virtual Programming

You can participate in the Hike for Hospice program virtually at any time during the day, and from any location of your choosing. This is ideal if you’re busy, away at the cottage or cautious about in-person gatherings. 

You can hike alone, with your dog, or within your group. All we ask is that you join us on our social media channels and share your hike using the hashtag #hike4hospicehalifax By using the hashtag you’ll be entered into a prize giveaway, plus it helps spread Hospice Halifax awareness to all your followers.

In addition, the virtual program will include:

  • A pre-recorded warm up to follow along 
  • LIVE updates from members of our community throughout the day
  • Exclusive contests and giveaways
  • Special musical guests
  • Final announcements for total fundraised and top team / individual 
  • and more!

Fundraising Incentives

That’s right wonderful people! The more you fundraise to help Hospice Halifax and our incredible cause, you’ll also earn some goodies for yourself! Bonus incentives are awarded post-hike, to INDIVIDUALS who meet the fundraising milestone. ***

*** Please note, these incentives are earned as individual participants only! For example: If person A donates to person B’s Hike for Hospice page, this will add to person B’s total fundraised amount which will make them eligible to receive all bonus goodies for each fundraising milestone they’ve surpassed. Person A is NOT eligible for these goodies, unless they register themselves and fundraise under their own page.
