Mission Hospice Society celebrates busy summer

The local organization took part in several activities in July and August

Among the events held by the Mission Hospice Society this summer was the Ride for Hospice on Aug. 16.

The Mission Hospice Society had a busy summer this year.

July was spent in the community bringing awareness of the many programs that the organization offers.

Also in July, the society sent 15 children to Zajac Ranch – at no cost to their parents – for three days.

Mission Fire/Rescue spent time with the children on one of the days to help support their journey of healing from grief.

August was a busy month with the Ride for Hospice on Aug. 16 and the Hole in One event for a Harley-Davidson motorcycle on Aug. 21 and 22.

As well, the Mission Hospice Society was the recipient of the funds raised at the Ivan Pretty Estates golf tournament held at Sandpiper Golf Course on Aug. 25.

All of the proceeds from these events will go toward supporting and expanding bereavement and support services in Mission.
