No gatherings, no problem for the Chatham-Kent Hospice.
The end-of-life care facility’s annual Hike for Hospice took place recently amid social distancing guidelines and other pandemic restrictions, but families and friends still managed to hike to the tune of more than $143,000.
“The support for this year’s Hike for Hospice is stunning! We were happy to be back out at Mud Creek Trail – even though everyone participated on their own time, it felt much more like our traditional Hike for Hospice,” event chair Randi Bokor Caron said in a media release. “We received so many kind messages about the touching memorial signs along the trail. They certainly served as a reminder of why we host this event and the spirit of Hospice. Thank you to everyone who participated, at Mud Creek or in your own community, and those who pledged their support.”
It wasn’t just families taking part either.
“We also had many workplaces from across Chatham-Kent participate in our Corporate Challenge. Whether they are working from home or just at a distance, it was a fun and safe, team-building opportunity to do some good in our community. Congratulations to The MCBS Girls, winner of the 2021 Corporate Challenge,” Bokor said.
