Hospice and Paliative Care

DOMESTICI.CZ | Martin Soucek | For a Dignified End of Life

We will ride 5,000 kilometers on a bicycle from the west to the east coast of the USA to support the development of palliative care in the Czech Republic together. I have positioned myself at the center of a team of domestiques who share a common goal – to get the racer to the finish line in the best physical and mental condition possible. This task is similar to that of the relatives of the severely ill and dying – to accompany their loved ones to the end. Become one of the domestiques and join this incredible adventure of helping.

5,000 kilometers for the last moments of life.

Let's together transform the way we die in the Czech Republic. Thank you for your support.

Life should be of quality and dignity until the last second. That's why palliative care is here. My dream is that together we will manage to raise 10 million CZK for this challenging aspect of life, which concerns each of us. = 10 million for palliative care, making the journey meaningful.

We will ride in a relay with Tomáš Navrátil in one of the toughest ultra-cycling races in the world: 5,000 kilometers in a mere 9-day limit. A race that cannot be managed without domestiques, those who help the racer reach the finish line. And it is these helpers, domestiques for palliative care, that I am looking for. Therefore, all your donations will be distributed for the direct support of palliative care in the Czech Republic. We will help a specific hospice, support the provision of mobile hospice care in regions, and invest in awareness, which is extremely important. I wish that together we ensure a quality and dignified life until the last moment for as many people as possible. Whether they are our loved ones or people we don't even know. Palliative care is not here to cure the patient at all costs, but to ensure that their departure is as they would have wished. I wish everyone such a departure. This is how I would like to leave one day. Become a domestique - join and donate.

Across America for Palliative Care!

5,000 km, 9 days, 24 hours in the saddle daily, and at least 555 km underfoot, a community of hundreds and thousands of generous people who think of others. Thank you for becoming a domestique of palliative care and for joining us!

How exactly will your donations help?

I created the project and joined forces with the Via Foundation, which established the Domestici donor fund and a public collection for the development of palliative care in the Czech Republic. All funds raised will be distributed among great organizations dedicated to palliative care and advancing it in the Czech Republic. Your donations will be distributed among:
  • Hospice of Saint Lazarus, helping people at the end of life in the Pilsen region.
  • The Mobile Hospices Forum, making palliative care more accessible in other regions of the Czech Republic.
  • The Center for Palliative Care providing education and information, essential for a good end to become commonplace.
