Niagara Hospice and community groups and individuals host dozens of events each year to help support our mission of providing expert care and personalized support for patients, families and caregivers facing a terminal illness. Listed below are the annual fundraising events organized by Niagara Hospice.

Spring Bouquet Sale ~ March 11-16, 2024!

Held annually during the first week of March, the Spring Bouquet Sale enlists the help of churches, businesses, schools and organizations throughout Niagara County to help sell beautiful, fresh bouquets of flowers. This event relies heavily on volunteers and our community partners to be successful. Become a pre-sale coordinator, a walk-up sale location, or help deliver during the week of the sale. If you are interested in helping with the sale, call 716-280-0766.

Community Bike Ride to Support Families ~ August 10, 2024!

What is a Gran Fondo? A Gran Fondo is a type of ride that originated in Italy and translates to Big Ride. Known as a party on wheels, Gran Fondos offer food and refreshments along the route and are followed by huge post-race parties.

Register here for the Gran Fondo which offers all that and more! Several of the refreshment stops are at Niagara Wine Trail wineries.

The post-race party features live music, draft beer, wine tastings, fruit, water, and more! The Hospice Gran Fondo offers riders the opportunity to ride along some of the most beautiful bike routes Western New York has to offer. Riders can choose routes of 62 miles (100 km), 33 miles or 15 miles.

Join Us to Run or Walk for Patients & Families ~ October 5, 2024!

The Mighty Niagara Half Marathon was started by event chairman Paul Beatty, Jr. in 2011 as the Hospice Dash Half Marathon. The race was such a success that Niagara Hospice promoted it on a national level and made it a premier annual fundraising event for the community to support families in hospice care. It features live music along the route with historic sites and beautiful views of the Niagara River and Lake Ontario, post-race celebration, T-shirts, custom-made medals to commemorate your achievement and great food!
