Hike for Hospice
Date: Saturday, October 3 - 31, 2020
Location: Virtual livestream kickoff on October 3rd
Hospice of Southern Maine invites the public to get creative with your hike and participate virtually in the inaugural Hike for Hospice fundraising event. Hike for Hospice is a fundraiser to benefit Hospice of Southern Maine’s Gosnell Memorial Hospice House and Home Hospice Program.
Participating virtually allows you to choose your own route! Perhaps you will walk in your favorite neighborhood, on a treadmill, at the beach or even up a mountain! You have the flexibility and convenience of walking or hiking at any time, at your own pace, and a distance that's good for you. No matter what, you're supporting a great cause and your support makes all the difference.
T-shirts and your choice of a mask or neck buff will be mailed to the first 200 participants. Wear your Hike for Hospice T-shirt and mask/neck buff on your hike route of your choice and share with all.
Participate in a virtual hike in support of Hospice of Southern Maine! With a virtual hike, you choose the location, time and distance of your walk.
Here are a few ideas for your virtual hike:
Walk 2,000 (1-mile) or 7,000 (5K) steps on your favorite beach
Join a friend and walk your favorite route... socially distanced of course!
Walk on your treadmill, ride a stationary bike, or hop on your rowing machine and record your distance
Don't forget Fido! Walk with your pet in their favorite spot
Get creative and share your experience by posting photos and videos to your personal fundraising page. Make each step count and share your experience with everyone!
This is your chance to Hike for Hospice on your very own route. The opportunity to fundraise and participate virtually has been extended to October 31, 2020.
