Due to the uncertainty surrounding our public health crisis, Hope Hospice unfortunately has canceled Hike for Hope 2020 which has been scheduled for Saturday, May 2nd.
This was a heart-breaking decision to make as we know how much Hike for Hope means to so many families and friends who gather to enjoy the outdoors and to honor or remember loved ones. For this reason, we are looking to hold an informal group hike at Del Valle Regional Park in the fall. We'll provide more details about this later this this year.
Hike for Hope is also an important fundraiser for Hope Hospice, as it raises critical support for our patient care, grief support and community education programs on which so many families depend.
Though we've closed the 2020 registration link for Hike for Hope, donations to the event can still be accepted.
We'll reopen registration in January, 2021.
For those who have already paid the event registration fee, please send us an email with your choice of the following options.
*Request a refund.
*Request that your donation be applied to the 2021 event.
*Request that your original payment remain as a tax-deductive donation to Hope Hospice. Your original email confirmation serves as your receipt for tax purposes.
We also want to thank our early corporate sponsors who pledged their generous support for this year's event:
Heritage Bank of Commerce
Palo Alto Medical Foundation - Sutter Health
John Muir Health Systems
Stanford Health Care - Valley Care
California Business Technology
East Bay Community Energy

Rest assured, we will come back stronger and better than ever with a beautiful event in 2021. We thank you for your support and will see you out at Del Valle Regional Park soon!
Hope Hospice is fully operational and continues to serve the residents of Contra Costa and Eastern Alameda counties.
