Will you hike with me?

Dear QCH team,

This fall QCH Foundation has launched an exciting new initiative – Hike for Healthcare – to help meet the current and ongoing funding needs of our hospital.

I am inviting you and everyone at QCH to sign up for our virtual Hike for Healthcare, which challenges participants to hike, walk or run 10km any time from now until October 15, to raise funds for urgently needed equipment at QCH.

Not only will you be helping to raise critical funds for our hospital, this event is a great way to keep fit and healthy safely during the pandemic. You can participate individually or as part of a team, virtually or with others in your social bubble, any time and anywhere you want. Inside your home, on breaks at work, outside in your neighborhood , or on some of our beautiful local hiking trails.

I’ve signed-up to take part in this exciting new event, and I really hope you will too.

Registration is online and easy.


A team has already been created for each QCH department so you can easily work with your colleagues to raise funds together. Once you register online, just search to find your department team.

Plus… all QCH staff who fundraise $1,000 or more will be entered into a draw to win an iPhone 11!

I really hope you can join me, and help our hospital by hiking for healthcare this fall.

Thank you, as always, for your ongoing and generous support and for everything you do to keep our community healthy and safe.

With sincere gratitude,

Shannon Gorman, President & CEO, Queensway Carleton Hospital Foundation

PS. I am delighted to announce that the next $5,000 raised by our hikers will be matched by a $5,000 gift from the Just Happy Golf Tournament.
