CENTURY 21 Millennium Inc. joined the Hike or Bike for Hospice as the title sponsor and entered a team in early March to help raise money for their local hospice – Hospice Georgian Triangle (HGT). HGT had recently been approved to expand their facility, increasing their funding needs so their annual fundraising event was more important than ever. Then, because of COVID-19, they had to change their usual in-person event into a virtual one.
The 10th Annual Hike or Bike for Hospice – The Virtual Edition took place Sunday, May 31, 2020 with participants hiking or biking on their own or with their household, following social distancing rules to keep themselves and neighbours safe. The goal was to raise $80,000, but thanks to the community’s relentless support they collected $111,397.48 – the most the event has ever raised since it’s creation.
The C21 team was the top fundraising team this year, donating $17,310, and won the $1000 gift card to a local ski/snowboard retailer. Their plan is to use this gift card to “pay it forward” as a continuation of support for the members of their community.
“We are so proud of our wonderful team at CENTURY 21 Millennium Inc. in the Collingwood, Thornbury and Wasaga Beach offices for being the top fundraising team for this event. Their tireless effort in supporting the Hospice Georgian Triangle during these challenging times will help so many in our community. Way to go team!” – Joanne Evans, Kevin Woolham & Josee Rivard, Century 21 Millennium Inc.
