The Mission Hospice Society will hold its annual Ride for Hospice on Sunday, Aug. 11.
The ride takes place rain or shine and starts at Fraser River Heritage Park in Mission, with a new registration time from 10 to 11 a.m.
The ride leaves the park at 11 a.m., and the poker run includes three stops along the way – the Sasquatch Inn in Harrison Mills, the parking lot by Jack’s Restaurant in Agassiz, and Mountainview Harley-Davidson in Chilliwack.
“We are trying to encourage everyone to attend – not just people on bikes, but cars, trucks, old and new,” said Angel Elias, executive director of the Mission Hospice Society.
Money raised at the event goes toward the children’s bereavement camp at Zajac Ranch.
“We send 25 bereaved kids from the ages of eight to 12 to the camp for a weekend of making memories in honour of their lost loved one,” Elias said.
“The camp is very expensive and we are hoping to have around 100 people come this year (on the Ride for Hospice) with whatever they choose to drive.”
Lunch is provided by the local Elks club, and there are several prizes from Mountainview Harley and Snap-on.
