Local Hike for Hospice will be held May 3

Abbotsford residents will join thousands of people across the country as they come together to raise funds for hospice palliative care

Abbotsford residents will join thousands of people across the country on Sunday, May 3, as they come together to raise funds for hospice palliative care programs and services. It is the 13th anniversary of the Hike for Hospice Palliative Care.

Event organizer Marion Keys said, “We encourage families and friends to get together and walk in memory of a loved one. A hike around scenic Mill Lake is ideal to listen to a friend in grief.”

While the hike is coordinated nationally, due to the generous financial support of GSK and Bayshore HealthCare, 100 per cent of the funds raised will remain in Abbotsford, and will be used to support volunteer programs.

The money raised through the hike helps the Abbotsford Hospice provide physical, emotional and social support to patients and their families.

Registration starts at 10 a.m. in Mill Lake park at the picnic area (Number 4 South off Bevan Avenue). The event begins at 10:30 a.m. The route is 2.4 kilometres – once around the park.

Refreshments are sponsored by the Abbotsford Lions Club. Donations are welcome.
