Please help us by advertising and promoting our event.

With all of the uncertainty with COVID-19, we wanted to create a campaign, so people could still have a way to support us and also stay active while in self-isolation, self-quarantine, or physical distancing.

With the outbreak of COVID-19 expected to continue into the summer, with no end in sight, our hospice society which relies on holding fundraising events has had to cancel all our events. This has meant a great loss in our organizational revenues.  This reduction in funding has placed the operations and indeed the very existence of our Society and our programs in jeopardy. Because of this, the Surrey Hospice Society is making changes to the way that funding is achieved; we are trying to go virtual.

Surrey Hospice Society is a volunteer based, non-profit organization rooted in the community of Surrey, BC Canada. We provide a wide variety of services and programs - all free of charge -  for those facing the end of their life, hospice and palliative care, as well as grief and bereavement support for adults, children and youth who have lost people they love.

We need your help to continue to offer these services and programs as the demand for us is higher than it has ever been and continues to grow daily in these challenging times.

HEART & SOLE : Virtual Hike for Hospice

 

Surrey Hospice Society is encouraging people to register for Heart and Sole a Virtual Hike for Hospice and to join together virtually for a 1km, 5km, 10km walk, run or bike ride. People can go to a nearby park, walk or ride on one of the beautiful paths and walking trails in your community, use a treadmill, stationary bike or even walk around your yard.

 

You can participate as a Virtual Hiker! A virtual Hike for Hospice will allow you to create your own Hike. Whether that's around your property at home, on a treadmill if you have one, or safely around your community. If you do choose to hike around your community, we ask that you please obey all signs and/or notices and also please practice physical distancing to protect yourself, and others, we are counting on you for imaginative ways to take the steps virtually.  For the protection of everyone’s health and safety when walking, please follow the Public Health direction that it is important to maintain the recommended physical distance.

You will be able to reach out to friends and family using our forms and this fundraising page to collect donations. The hike this year is as much about mental health as it is about fundraising. Get people together virtually, and do something fun. 

  • Complete an individual Run or Hike in your own time & pace at any destination of your choice.  Please be safe and follow all recommendations from our Chief Medical Officer that are in place currently.
  • Do you have someone you are walking, running, biking or hiking in honor or memory of? Feel free to send us a picture along with their name, and we will share it in our public, “In Memory & Honor Album
  • Make a connection with us on social media by tagging  us on Facebook, Twitter or on Instagram & using the hashtag #heart&solehikeforhospice2020
  • Make a donation to Surrey Hospice Society in honor of the loved one you are Walking, Running, Biking or Hiking. 100% of the funds raised in our community remain in our communities

We would love for everyone to send us photos or videos of your hike. Feel free to include a message of encouragement or the reason you are participating. Participants can send those photos and videos to us and we would love to share some of your photos and videos on our social media channels. Celebrate life and remember a loved one. Share stories with us, make friends through social media, get some exercise, create special memories and make a difference in someone else’s life.
