Over 400 community-minded individuals gathered in Inglewood on Sunday, May 6 at the 8th annual Hike for Bethell Hospice. We are thrilled to announce that we have equalled last year’s record-setting total, with $163,000 raised. We are so grateful to all of you!
The event featured an accessible, five kilometre hike along the Caledon Trailway, a memory board full of remembrances, a delicious barbecue lunch prepared by the Caledon Lions Club, a silent auction supported by countless local businesses, and a tremendous feeling of positive good will.
Bethell Hospice Foundation co-chair, Tim Powell, thanked the large crowd for their generous support. “Each of you here today is aware how vital the services of Bethell Hospice are to our community. As the words on the back of our hike t-shirts remind us, Bethell Hospice is a place of Caring, Compassion, Love, Empathy, Respect, Comfort, Serenity, and Peace. Many of you have experienced those feelings first hand, and each of you have cared enough to come forward today, to ensure that Bethell Hospice services will be here for the next families in need. Thank you all so much for your belief in the importance of Bethell Hospice in our community.”
