The annual RBC Hike for Hospice was held on Sunday. The event has grown into a much-anticipated way to remember loved ones, and raise funds for ARCH Hospice. With RBC’s help nearly $40,000 has been raised to date to provide end-of-life care in our community!
People gathered at the Roberta Bondar Pavilion to enjoy the Memorial Trail, a bouncy house, face painting and a bunch of new entertainment like carnival treats and activities, food trucks, a dream catcher workshop and vendors.
The RBC Hike registration fee was $25 per participant – kids 12 and under were free! All proceeds from this event go towards providing comfort to local families. ARCH Hospice provides quality, compassionate care through end-of-life to Algoma District families at no cost. The emotional, spiritual, and physical comfort of their residents and their loved ones is the highest priority. They offer a home-away-from-home during one of life’s most important moments: the end-of-life journey.
ARCH Hospice is only partially government funded, requiring $750,000 annually in community support as well as the generosity of over 100 volunteers to provide our services to the community.
With the public’s participation, the RBC Hike for Hospice helps raise much-needed funds so ARCH can continue to provide comfort and care to Sault-area families.
