We encourage all hikers to share your hike with us! Post your hike photos and tag @RotaryHospice on Instagram and @RotaryHospiceStratfordPerth on Facebook; we want to hear about your Hike for Hospice experience!

Please know, however and whenever you choose to take your steps, your actions will have an impact on all those who will call Rotary Hospice 'home'.

There is no cost for an individual to stay at Rotary Hospice, however, there is a cost. Rotary Hospice must fundraise $350 per day, per room. Your fundraising efforts will ensure that, in the words of Dame Cicely Saunders, founder of the modern day hospice care movement...

" You matter because you are you, and you matter until the end of your life. We will do all we can not only to help you die peacefully, but also to live until you die."

Thank you for caring!
