Community Care Northumberland (CCN) is pleased to announce it will be hosting the 8th Annual “Hospice Hike” in Memorial Park in Brighton on May 6th, 2018 from 10 am to noon. The fundraising goal for this event is $10,000 and the funds raised support the Hospice Services program that operates throughout Northumberland County.
This year the Brighton Army Cadets will participate, provide volunteers to set up, guide and marshal the hike and walk routes, along with helping to raise awareness of the event.
The Rotary Club of Brighton is hosting the lunch BBQ with all proceeds being donating to this event.
The YMCA is also providing assistance during the opening ceremony – getting the crowd warmed up before the walk.
“Partnering with other community groups like the Brighton Army Cadets, The Rotary Club and YMCA ties into our agency’s values,” said Trish Baird – Executive Director of CCN. “This collaboration truly reflects how our Hospice Services program operates to provide clinical and nonclinical care in the community to patients with a life limiting illness and to their caregivers.”
“Our Hospice Services support clients in living well until they die. Our trained volunteers focus on dignity and individual needs as they provide compassionate care and support to clients and their families, said Baird. “Our services and programs allow us to support clients in a variety of locations, providing continuity if a client moves from place to place. This support program is offered at no cost to clients or their families.”
“We need pledges and participation in our “Hospice Hike” walk to help ensure that this continues,” Baird added.
