June 1, 2021 – COLLINGWOOD, ONTARIO – Thanks to YOU, our incredible community, we have exceeded our fundraising goals for the 11th Annual Hike or Bike for Hospice Georgian Triangle! Thank you to everyone who registered, fundraised, donated, shared our message, entered our photo contests and got active in the name of Hospice … to date we have raised OVER $160,000.00! That is the most raised in the entire 11 year history of the event! We are speechless at the generosity of our community of supporters every single day.
