Memorial Tree

 

Hike for Hospice is not only an event to raise essential funds for Sakura House, but a way to celebrate the lives of our loved ones who have died. We will have our memorial tree on display at Roth Park during the Hike where participants can place a flower with their loved one's name, message, and/or picture.

For those who choose to join the Hike virtually, or in your own neighbourhood, we invite you to remember your loved one in the following ways. 

 

1. Visit our Hike for Hospice Tent

Visit us at our Hike for Hospice Tent during the above times and write the name of your loved one on a flower and place it on our tree. You can also bring a small picture to place with your flower.

2. Send us an Email

Send us and email with the subject line as "Memorial Tree" and include in the email, the name of your loved one, a message, and/or a picture to oxfordgiving@von.ca and we would be happy to place it on the Memorial Tree for you.

3. Colour a Butterfly

Print out these Memorial Butterfly Colouring Pages colour them however you like and either bring it to our Hike for Hospice Tent or email a picture to oxfordgiving@von.ca and we will place it on the Memorial Tree for you.
