Thank You, Quesnel,

for making our


Hike for Hospice


a huge success

Your generosity has helped us raise

COVID has made fundraising challenging for all non-profits, including the Quesnel & District Hospice Palliative Care Association. In an effort to keep everyone safe and healthy while working within pandemic restrictions, the QDHPCA decided to try a Virtual Hike for Hospice this year.


The premise was simple. Sign up at, gather pledges from March 15 - May 2, 2021, and then Hike from May 3-9 in a safe, socially distanced manner that works for the participants. Teams received prizes for signing up and their name was put into a draw for a basket prize.


The response was overwhelming. Sixteen teams signed up and raised over $11,000 for Hospice Palliative care needs in Quesnel. The funds will go towards a new bariatric wheelchair for Dunrovin Lodge, a new TV and non-slip socks for Quesnel Hospice, and a new palliative mattress for GRB Hospital.
