Hope Hospice provides compassionate care to individuals at the end of life and support to their loved ones. Hike for Hope is our biggest fundraiser of the year. This year’s format is a little different, but the goal is the same: to raise $100,000 for patient care and community programs, including grief support services, dementia education, and caregiver resources for local families.
Registration closes at 11:59 p.m. on June 4.
For this year’s flexible event, there are TWO WAYS to participate. Choose one and ask your friends and family to support you with a donation to Hope Hospice. We’ll award prizes to the top fundraisers and other fun categories:
Saturday, June 5
Hike as an individual or team at your favorite local trail, or simply walk in your neighborhood. Our sponsor AllTrails.com has curated a collection of local trails suited to most fitness levels. Find that list here.
Week-long Champion Challenge
Saturday, May 29, through Saturday, June 5
Go the extra mile and accept our week-long challenge. Set a goal for the week and chip away each day. Log your progress on your participant page; here's a how-to video. Graham-Hitch Mortuary has generously offered to match the money raised by our top fundraiser in the Champion Challenge, whether a team or an individual, up to $10,000!
Register separately for the Jamboree.
The Jamboree on June 5 will offer live music and engaging activities with fellow hikers—all presented through Zoom for safety. The program will run from 4 to 6 p.m. When we break for dinner, enjoy entertainment from Cali Conscious, a contemporary beach rock/reggae band.
We’ve partnered with Frankie, Johnnie, and Luigi Too Italian restaurant in Dublin for this event. The restaurant will donate a portion of the proceeds from your order to Hope Hospice. If you’d like to participate, order dinner to-go in advance for pick up on June 5, and we’ll dine together at the Jamboree. For online orders, be sure to put "Hike for Hope group" in the comments section to make your order count. If you order by phone, (925) 828-9380, tell the staff you are with the Hike for Hope group.
We recommend that you schedule your order for pickup by 3 p.m. to allow time to get home and tune in to the Jamboree's 4 p.m. start time. We'll reheat our food when it's time for the music to begin. See you there!
Hike for Hope is a celebration of the outdoors and, for many participants, a remembrance of family and other loved ones who have departed us. It's also a fundraiser for Hope Hospice, which has been caring for families throughout the Tri-Valley and neighboring East Bay cities since 1980.
All of the hike's net proceeds help Hope Hospice care for more than 700 patients and their families each year.
Hope helps patients affirm life and live every day to the fullest by providing compassionate end-of-life care of exceptional quality, grief support services, and community education.
As a community-driven non-profit organization, Hope Hospice serves everyone regardless of their insurance or income status, nation of origin, or religion. Your donation enables Hope to provide these services throughout the year.
Hope Hospice is 501(c)(3) organization. Federal Tax ID 94-2576059.
