Message of thanks from our Board of Directors
On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Stratford Perth Hospice Foundation, I would like to share some wonderful news.
Our 7th Annual Hike for Hospice was a resounding success. Total Hike participants was 179 which included 30 teams. Collectively, they raised more than $107,000 which puts us well over our $95,000 target.
The success of an event like this is never done singlehandedly. At Rotary Hospice we believe it “takes a village”. This is just one clear example of how we can come together as a community, be creative and have a lot of fun doing it.
There are several groups that we would like to thank.
Thank you to our returning Corporate Sponsors, Ontario Home Health, Tradition Mutual, Woodcock Bros. and McCutchen & Pearce. We are tremendously grateful for their continued commitment.
Thank you to our wonderful staff led by Lana Burchett and includes: Lucie Stuart, Michelle Field, Norma Reese and Katie Jervis. Michelle’s team worked diligently and creatively in coordinating the event. The organizing committee worked hard to ensure the success of the day. Kudos to all for a job well done!
The Stratford Perth area is a wonderful community in which to live. Our local, provincial and federal government officials have supported this initiative from the very beginning. Thanks for your encouraging message to all Hike participants and donors.
Thanks to all the participants and donors. Once again, hike participants used their creativity and ingenuity to create a virtual hiking experience for themselves. I encourage everyone to check our Facebook and Instagram accounts for photos and videos from many of our Hikers.
We are very humbled by the generosity of the donors to our Hike and those who shared their personal stories. Your gifts will allow us to continue to do the fine work that is done at Rotary Hospice and make it a wonderful, compassionate, and caring end-of-life experience.
Thanks to everyone for their support.
