The Bucket List Challenge


Have you ever wanted to go skydiving? Have you been itching to learn how to play the guitar? Is it your dream to ride a horse, get a tattoo, or swim in the ocean? The Great Bucket List Challenge is an awesome way to live your dreams, all while supporting ARCH Hospice and inspiring others!

The first step is to pick an item on your bucket list. Maybe you want to face one of your biggest fears, honour a loved one, or visit a new country – no matter how big or small your item is, you can achieve your dreams! Registering for The Great Bucket List Challenge is simple. Call ARCH at 705-942-1556 ext. 223 or email [email protected]

We will walk you through your challenge step-by-step, keeping you motivated and helping you reach your goal.

Once you begin your bucket list journey, we encourage you to share your adventure with family and friends. We will help capture your moment, taking photos and videos to feature your story on social media platforms. By challenging yourself, we hope the community will be inspired to not only help you reach your fundraising goals for Hospice, but also to join The Great Bucket List Challenge themselves.

So far our Bucket Listers have done some very amazing things, including publishing a book; riding a horse, and starting up their own theatre troupe.

Theresa Mudge, Executive Director for ARCH Hospice, is participating in a big way. “I always strive to challenge my body and mind. On April 20, I will be running over 100km in the Zion desert in Utah to commemorate my 40th birthday.

“I’m excited, I’m scared, but I hope to show my son that with determination, anything is possible.” In addition to checking off this very big Bucket List item, Theresa hopes to fundraise $5,000 for ARCH.

So far she has raised $3,175. To pledge Theresa, offer words of support and hear more of her story, visit her fundraising site.

The fun doesn’t stop with the Challenge! On June 1, the community is invited to The Bucket List Ball held at and sponsored by The Machine Shop.

We’ll be hosting a large celebration featuring all of our Bucket Listers and their stories. Included in the evening will be a delicious meal prepared by The Mill Steakhouse + Wine Bar, great hits played by The Reptiles, prize draws, and Live Bucket Listing where you can try once-in-a-lifetime experiences by donating to Hospice.

Tickets to the Ball are available for $50 each, or tables of ten reserved for $500. Get your tickets today from ARCH Hospice, or one of our generous sponsors: the Box Office at the Machine Shop, Case’s Music, and The Breakfast Pig.

Thank you to additional sponsors Golden Child Kitchen, AK Graphix, Team Essentials, Crank Sound Distribution, and RBC Royal Bank for making this amazing evening possible!

Every dollar raised by The Great Bucket List Challenge and The Bucket List Ball stays local at ARCH and funds programs including residential Hospice care, family support, grief counselling, and community education services.
