My personal message

The Cooper Family +1 Laura Toombs are hiking in support of the Dorothy Ley Hospice for the 15th year on May 7th. This is a 5km hike through the neighbourhood surrounding the Dorothy Ley Hospice. However, for my parents, this year is different. Not because their only daughter is getting married in August to the previously mentioned Laura Toombs. But in celebration of our 15th year walking, and my Dad's 70th birthday, my Dad will be hiking an additional 75km!! Starting at the Bob Kemp Hospice in Hamilton on May 3rd, and stopping at a number of Hospices along the way; Carpenter House (Burlington) and Ian Anderson House (Oakville), he will finish his walk with the Dorothy Ley team on May 7th. With his two brand new knees, and questionable ankles, my Mom will be there by his side to drag him over the finish line. Check out their blog at to stay up to date on their training, progress, stops along the way and their journey. Hospice is very close to my Dad’s heart. In 2006, his Board Chair predecessor Paul Ginou and he made a pact to remain involved in The Dorothy Ley Hospice until comfortable self-sustainability was achieved. Within a month of their pact Paul was diagnosed with cancer. He died the following April. As my Dad told Paul’s wife Ann, he will honour their pact, which is not only the long term goal for him, but for the whole Cooper family. As this is a special year, we hope to far exceed the $20,000 we raised last year and have a goal of raising $50,000!! My personal goal is $4000! We need your help, so please click SPONSOR ME NOW to donate. You can help us do this with your donation, but also by passing the word along to your friends who may have been touched by Hospice. Your support is greatly appreciated!
