Abbotsford Hospice Society holds community scavenger hunt

Road to Gratitude event takes place on Sunday, July 19 by the carload

The Abbotsford Hospice Society (AHS) holds a community scavenger hunt on Sunday, July 19.

The Road to Gratitude event runs from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at a cost of $25 per carload.

Participants will follow a set of instructions that take them around Abbotsford answering questions and completing challenges. The event is geared towards all ages and abilities.

Organizers say the event is being held as a way to thank the community and re-launch services at AHS’s Holmberg House, a 10-bed hospice located at Gladwin and Marshall roads.

The facility provides end-of-life care for adults, as well as grief support groups, volunteer training, education seminars and one-on-one support services.

Registration is online at abbotsfordhospice.org/roadtograditude. All entries are entered into a draw to win a barbecue.

For more information, email cyndi@abbotsfordhospice.org or call 604-852-2456.
