Toronto Hike for Hospice is really a hike for life: affirming life, and ensuring quality of life, for every life.

We are hiking to ensure the continued delivery of palliative and respite hospice services to children and adults, living with a life-limiting illness, and their families during a very critical time, including practical, emotional, spiritual and bereavement support:  compassionate care, when there is no cure….
