All of the proceeds raised from the Roanoke Hike for Hospice in the Fall and the NRV Hike for Hospice in the Spring are designated to directly support and enhance Good Samaritan Hospice’s extensive Bereavement Program.
Good Sam’s Bereavement Program annually serves approximately 700 individuals, hosts 100 + grief counseling classes and groups in the community which are free and open to the public, and follows each patient’s family for 13 months after they pass to offer support and reassurance.
Good Samaritan Hospice’s Bereavement Program is considered “uncompensated care” and totally sustained only by the funds raised from our community. Good Sam is committed to not only providing the very best care for our patients, but also supporting the families and loved ones who must process the grief and reconcile with the loss.
Those who participate in our annual Roanoke Hike for Hospice and NRV Hike for Hospice are aiding us in fulfilling our mission to affirm life in the midst of illness and grief and, above all, to honor what matters most to each person and family served. Thank YOU for making a difference!
