The Polar Plunge will raise funds in 2017 for High Peaks Hospice Nursing Certification Program with a goal of raising $3750.

High Peaks Hospice and Palliative Care was founded in January 1986 by Ann and David Merkel and a dedicated group of concerned medical, clergy, and community volunteers, who saw the need for expanded services to the terminally ill throughout the Adirondack Mountains.

The generous financial support of the dozens of north country communities we serve has been what has sustained High Peaks Hospice and Palliative Care for the past 26 years. Your ongoing financial support forms the foundation upon which we have provided compassionate hospice services to over 6,200 terminally ill individuals and their families.
