Annual Ride for Hospice set for Sunday

This year’s event will take place at Heritage Park and will be a poker run throughout the Fraser Valley.

The Mission Hospice Society is hosting its Annual Ride for Hospice on Sunday,  Aug. 16. This year’s event will take place at Heritage Park and will be a poker run throughout the Fraser Valley, with three stops along the way for the participants to get part of their poker hand and enjoy the scenery.

Cost to participate is $25 per motorcycle and $20 for a passenger. Lunch is included. Registration runs from 9 to 10 a.m. and lunch will be provided back at the park from 1 to 3 p.m.

Tons of prizes are available to be won. For those who do not ride a motorcycle, you can enjoy the event by driving the scenic route either in your hot rod vehicle or regular car or truck.

This event supports the Mission Hospice Society children’s bereavement camp at Zajac Ranch, plus children’s support groups. To register, visit missionhospice.bc.ca.

“With 100 per cent of the proceeds going into our children’s programs, I hope to see many bikes and cars come out for a great day,” said executive director Angel Elias.
