Mission’s Hike for Hospice May 6

The annual event gets underway at 8:30 a.m. at Fraser River Heritage Park

Mission Hospice Society

Missionites will join thousands of other people across Canada next Sunday as they gather to raise money for hospice palliative care programs and services.

The annual Hike for Hospice happens May 6 at Fraser River Heritage Park, located on Mary Street.

Registration begins at 8:30 a.m. and a warm up is hosted by Donna Lifford, Mission Boot Camp fitness instructor.

The four kilometer hike will leave Heritage Park at 10 a.m. and finish near the gazebo for a barbecue put on by the Mission Elks. Balloons are available for children and first and second prizes are available for the highest amount pledged. Families are welcome.

Hospice executive director Jane Cooper says proceeds — 100 per cent of which remain in Mission — will allow the society to continue its volunteer programs at the Christine Morrison Hospice, and the many support groups offered through the bereavement co-ordinator.

To support or participate in Come Hike With Us, or for more information, call 604-826-2235, or visit www.missionhospice.bc.ca.
