Each May, our major Hike for Bethell Hospice fundraiser brings families and community members together to raise money and remember their loved ones. Each participant receives a commemorative hike t-shirt and barbeque lunch, and the registration is fully tax receiptable. The Hike for Bethell Hospice raises over $100,000 annually, bringing together hundreds of participants who share a belief in the importance of Bethell Hospice in our community. The Inglewood Hike occurs on the first Sunday in May each year, and the Bolton Hike on the following Saturday. Participants may select either hike location. Online registration opens in February each year, and pledges to hike teams may be made until the end of June. To organize a team, gather pledges, or support a hike participant, visit our hike site here.
The prize in our first annual Caring for Our Community Lottery is a 2014 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid, valued at $46,925, with all proceeds in support of Bethell Hospice.

Check out all the details here. A complete list of ticket sales locations may be found here.
