Coming Hike for Hospice will be a hybrid event and, for the first time ever, we plan to take the Hong Kong event global! We will return to our traditional hike as a group on Sunday, 3 April 2022 along the scenic trails of Tai Tam Country Park, Hong Kong Island. In parallel, in response to the pandemic, the Hike will span the whole of April 2022 to let participants have the flexibility to complete their trails on their own schedule. Friends who can’t travel to Hong Kong due to the lockdown/restrictions can also arrange their own hikes in their locations within the event period. A very exciting expansion of what is almost a 30-year-old event!
Through ”Hike for Hospice”, we work towards raising much needed funds to help us extend our capacity to provide subsidized services so that more underprivileged terminal patients may find comfort and dignity in life’s final stage, allowing them more time and energy to spend with the ones who matter most at the Jockey Club Home for Hospice.
