Halifax Hike for Hospice Participants Learn About Cancer Rehab Services

Annual Hospice and Palliative Care Hikes Take Place Across Canada, Rain or Shine

On Sunday May 4, the Hospice Society of Greater Halifax held their annual Hike for Hospice event
On Sunday, May 4, the Hospice Society of Greater Halifax held their annual Hike for Hospice, which is an annual event held by Hospice and Palliative Care groups across Canada. Members of Centric Health’s clinical team participated in the major Halifax fundraiser which raised over $12,000 this year.

Dionna Read Eng, a Registered Massage Therapist at Centric Health who specializes in myofascial release and sport massage, led a warm up and stretch routine in preparation for the hike.  She offered short massages and gave brochures to those interested in learning more about the Cancer Rehab program in Halifax.

Most participants were walking for a loved one who had passed or were in end of life stages of wellness. Although the weather was windy and cool, the event was a positive experience.

The Hospice Society of Greater Halifax in a non-profit organization, with the goal of building the first residential hospice in the Halifax region, anticipated to be built in 2016.

The hike route wove around Bedford Bay in Bedford, Nova Scotia. Click here for a larger map.
