VIDEO: Running to raise money for Mission Hospice Society

The annual Heritage to Hatzic 5 km and 10 km run attracted 125 participants.

More than 125 people came to take part in the annual Heritage to Hatzic 5 km and 10 km run on Sunday at Mission’s Fraser River Heritage Park.

The rain stopped just in time for the fundraiser to begin at 9 a.m.

The event, described by many as “Mission’s very own Sun Run” was trying to raise $4,000 or more for the Mission Hospice Society so they can send some needy kids to summer camp.

A final total has yet to be announced, but participants say they had a great time during the event.
