Closer to the Vision of a Residential Hospice in the Stratford Perth Area



Sunday May 3, 2015 the STAR Family Health Team joined thousands of people across Canada, as they hiked around the Avon River, in support of the Hike for Hospice Palliative Care.  The annual event held nationwide is to raise the much-needed funds for hospice palliative care, but also to make people aware of the many challenges faced everyday by professionals, volunteers as they support people in end-of-life care.  The funds raised by the STAR Family Health Team are going towards a Residential Hospice to be built in the Stratford Perth area.  The city of Stratford has committed $1.5 M to the project and the Rotary Club of Stratford is collecting donations for this terrific cause.  The event was quite successful, with the final amount raised to still be determined.  Thank-you to everyone who contributed to this fantastic fundraiser.    


If you would like to make a donation, please make cheques payable to Rotary Club of Stratford Charitable Foundation and marked for palliative care. Mail to:
