Step Up for Hospice

Step Up for HospiceUntil September 24, 2016, the Shuswap Hospice Society is promoting a community fundraiser event, Step Up for Hospice. The Hospice is a non-profit organization that provides our community with compassionate support during the dying and grieving process for individuals and their family and friends.

Registered Walkers wear a pedometer to keep track of daily steps and have friends and family sponsor them. It’s an easy and fun way to challenge yourself and others by walking more and taking the stairs instead of the elevator! You’re also encouraged to hike the trails with distance markers to help track your steps.

Alternatively, you may choose to be a Sponsor and pledge funds to a Registered Walker(s). The pledge can be a lump sum or based on the number of steps a Walker completes for this period of time.

To join the cause and become a Registered Walker, please contact Cookie Langenfeld at 250-832-7099 or admin@shuswaphospice.ca to register. All pledge money will be collected from Walkers at the Wrap Up Celebration on September 24th (details to follow).
