About the 30 Hour Telethon for Brockville and District Hospice Palliative Care Services

The Brockville and District Hospice Palliative Care Service does not receive funding through the Provincial Health Care funding envelope.

The Service originated in 1979 under the auspices of the Sisters of Providence of St. Vincent de Paul (Brockville - St. Vincent de Paul Hospital). It has become a cherished and exemplary service in our Community with high standards of care - an innovative model, and an educational model for other palliative care programs across Canada.

In 1983 a man with a young family lost his wife due to cancer, and he wanted to thank the Service for the care and support his wife and family had received. He talked over an idea with a group of friends from the community and that idea became the Palliative Care Services Telethon, Brockville. Local TV and Media and the Brockville Musicians Association embraced the idea and in 1984 the first telethon benefiting palliative care services became a reality. Local and district community groups and volunteers came together in support of this first-time endeavour. Out of a family's grief came a major independent community fund-raiser for palliative care services in our local Community. We will never forget the original "friends" and the hundreds of volunteers and supporters who continue to make it happen each year.


Did you know that…

  • The 2017 Telethon raised $250,947 - a RECORD YEAR - bringing the total over the past 34 years to $3.5 million dollars to support Hospice Palliative Care services in our community. This service is unfunded by the Ministry and every cent stays local!
  • It is estimated that over 7000 volunteers throughout Leeds & Grenville have contributed time over this period to make this Telethon a success. All money raised remains in our Community and the Telethon is run 100% by volunteers.
  • This was the 34th year of live broadcast for the Telethon, raising money to support the local Hospice Palliative Care program in our community.
  • Please help to keep this service alive!
