2021 HIKE FOR HOSPICE Saturday, September 18, 2021

Thank you for joining us! We are so excited to have you join us for our 2021 Virtual Hike for Hospice. We may be physically apart again this year but we can work together to raise money to support our incredible community resource, Sakura House Hospice. We appreciate all of your support.

How to Participate

There is no limit to creativity when brainstorming fundraising ideas to support your Hike for Hospice. Engage your creative resources and encourage your team to think BIG. Here are just a few examples of easy ways to use your new pandemic skills and get your community involved:

Donate Your Day

We all have at least one day a year we could donate to change someone's end of life journey! For your birthday, Mother’s day, engagement, anniversary or any other day you simply ask your friends, family, work colleagues etc. to donate to your Hike for Hospice instead of giving you presents.

Start by registering for our Hike for Hospice, then share your page with friends and family, encouraging them to replace a gift with a donation.

Bake Sale

So many of us have perfected the art of baking during quarantine, why not share it with your community! Bake your favourite treats, breads, or try new recipes with goodies from your garden and sell them to friends and family to support your Hike for Hospice. Make sure you are following safe food handling and cooking practices.

Garage Sale

With the extra time we seem to find ourselves with, why not do some summer cleaning! Post your unwanted items on digital platforms like Facebook Marketplace or Kijiji and schedule porch pickups to make sure you stay safe while still raising some extra funds for Sakura House!

Craft Sale

If you picked up, or reignited, a crafting hobby why not show them off to your family and friends! Crochet, knit, sew, paint, tie dye, or craft your way to Top Fundraiser by putting them up for sale! Porch pick-ups and e-transfers are a great way to make sure you keep safe.

Car Wash

What better way to work on your sun tan than washing someone else's car? Spread the word and set up a washing station in your driveway, or travel to your friends and family's houses to wash their cars. Remember to only wash the outside and physically distance to make this the perfect fundraiser!

Bottle Drive

Summer is usually paired with a cold beverage, why not save your empties and collect them (physically distanced of course) from friends and family. Bring them back to the Beer Store and donate the money to support your Hike for Hospice!

Please Show Your Support

It's simple! Share how you are participating in Hike for Hospice on your social media and use the hashtag #HikeforSakura in your post. Send an email, or text message to all of the people you care about and tell them to join you in supporting Oxford County's only Hospice Residence. Pick up the phone, call your loved ones, and tell them how much Sakura House means to you.
