Hike for Hospice returns May 26

The annual event in Hope raises awareness and funds for the Fraser Canyon Hospice Society

The eighth annual Hike for Hospice in Hope is on May 26.

The Hike for Hospice starts at 2 p.m. in Memorial Park. This year, participants have the option of running, walking, biking or rollerblading the two or five kilometre routes, which are wheelchair, scooter, stroller and pet accessible.

To register, pick up a registration form at Romano’s (306 Wallace St.) and return it to the Hospice office (1275-7th Ave.).
