Hike for Hospice benefiting VON Oxford Sakura House is an annual hike that brings families, friends, staff, volunteers, sponsors and community members together to raise funds for Oxford County’s only residential hospice.
Our family will be hiking for the 4th consecutive year and fundraising in honour of our beloved Jolene Read, who spent her final days at Sakura House after her courageous battle of Neuroendocrine cervical cancer. Jolene was a dearly loved daughter, sister, aunt, best friend, and foremost, loving mother of her three beautiful children - all of whom will be walking in honour and memory of her and this great cause. She will always be remembered for her positive outlook on life, her witty sense of humour and encouraging us all to make many memories and the most of each day.
Donations received will continue to support the patients and their families who use Sakura's services each year. I hope you will join us. Help us reach our team goal to help more patients, like Jolene and families at VON Oxford Sakura House. We appreciate any donation you make. Just click on one of the Blue Team Tab support buttons (above donate button) to help us reach Team Cocomo Jo's goal!
Every contribution to VON Oxford Sakura House has a direct impact on our patients and families. Donations from caring people like you make it possible for us to offer the best end-of-life care to patients and support families during this difficult time, at no cost. You can help make a family’s life a little easier with your gift. Every donation helps. Thank you for investing in such meaningful work.

About VON Oxford Sakura House
Our 10-bed residential hospice provides compassionate end-of-life care at no cost to patients 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. VON Sakura House provides a skilled team of nurses, personal support workers, physicians and specially trained volunteers who help more than 170 patients and their families each year. Hospice care is covered only partially by government funding so we need to raise the rest to cover the gap. That is why your donation is so important.
