‘Sole to Soul’ for Hospice

The midnight walk is practiced by hospices all over the world

The Mission Hospice Society is hosting their third annual Sole to Soul Walk on June 23 at Heritage Park Secondary School’s track from 10 p.m. to midnight.

A ladies-only event, the three to six kilometre walk is a way to bond with other women sharing the loss of a loved one.

“Women have different grieving needs than men do and they like to connect with each other,” said hospice executive director Jane Cooper.

Women are invited to dress in costume, as has been popular in years previous.

Midnight walks are done by hospices all over the world, with as many as 3,000 women coming to such events in the UK.

Just before midnight the hospice will inflate biodegradeable balloons on which you can write the name of your loved one, and they will be released into the sky.

Sponsored by Envision Financial, there will be prizes, awards, music, pizza, and refreshments.
