Since 2003, walkers have enjoyed this scenic hike through the hilly backroads of Parishville, NY. Organized each year by the members of the Parishville AMVETS Post 265 Ladies Auxiliary, the 5-Mile walk has helped raise essential funds to support our services. The event features a poker run, luncheon and prizes. Grab a buddy, lace up your sneakers and join us this fall!
Colton Ski Challenge
Each winter, students of the Colton-Pierrepont National Honor Society organize a Cross Country Ski and Snowshoe-A-Thon at Higley Flow State Park. The students organize every aspect of the event including gathering donations from local businesses for refreshments and promoting the fundraiser at school and in the community. Weather conditions won’t prevent the Hospice Challenge! Participants have been known to brave below freezing temperatures some years or enjoy a nice winter hike during years without snow. Whatever the weather, this event is always enjoyable and the students do a phenomenal job each year!

Motorcycle Run for Hospice
Each year in July, 100’s of motorcyclists rally together to support Hospice services.
Founded by an informal group of Hospice supporters and motorcycle enthusiasts in 2000, the event is easily one of the most anticipated motorcycle runs of the summer. The 100+ mile ride, which covers most of St. Lawrence County, features multiple stops at local watering holes with raffles and prizes throughout the day. Riders are also invited to enjoy a fantastic dinner at the Clark-Robinson American Legion in Norwood immediately following the run.
This event draws an immense amount of community support, not only from the participants who ride in it, but also the numerous businesses and individuals who either sponsor the event or donate items for the silent auction and raffles. Hospice thanks all those involved!
