The public is encouraged to form a team in honour of a loved one or simply in support of Mission Hospice Society.

Registration is $12 per person, or a family of four is $30. If you have pledges valued at more than $200, then registration is free.

The event takes place at the Fraser River Heritage Park in Mission on Sept. 10.
