Hospice Society of North Kootenay Lake

A registered BC Not-for-Profit Society

Calendar of Events

Each year there are a number of events to engage people in the North Kootenay Lake area with the work of the Society

Upcoming Events

This year, due to social distancing, our Hike for Hospice fundraiser is a little different!
Instead of a one-day event, it will happen over a 10-day period, and participants will be
able to hike/walk/run on their own schedule and for their preferred distance.

SUPPORT HOSPICE IN OUR COMMUNITY! Hospice provides free of charge compassionate care and practical support to people living with life-threatening illness, their
loved ones, and the bereaved, as well as outreach programs and grief support in our community.

Turn your dog walk, daily run, or weekend hike into a fundraising opportunity to support
Hospice and help us continue providing these valuable services in Kaslo and Area D.

ROUTE: In other years, the Kaslo River Trail, approximately 5km, has been the route followed. People may choose to do this route or choose their own path.

There will be a Hospice Society banner at the Trailhead near the Unity Bridge, behind the
Village yard. Participants are encouraged to snap a photo of themselves or their group with
the banner and send it to hospice@kaslo.org for posting on our Facebook page.

PLEDGES, DONATIONS, and MEMBERSHIPS: When collecting pledges and donations, encourage people to apply $10 of their pledge amount to a one year membership.

Please emphasize that no obligation is attached to membership, but memberships are important to the Society, as they show community support and help in our efforts to secure funding from grantors.

Memberships are $10 per year, and a Lifetime Membership is $100.

CHARITABLE RECEIPTS: Any donation/pledge/membership amount that totals $20 or
more will receive a Charitable Tax Receipt. Donors need to provide their email to receive
the tax receipt.

COMPLETED PLEDGE SHEETS AND ENVELOPES can be turned in during office
hours [Tuesdays and Thursdays 9:30am-Noon] or slipped under the door of the Hospice
office: #201 312 4th Street in the Kemball Building. Or phone 250-353-2299 to make
other arrangements.
