Hike for Hospice Chatham-Kent is Growing

Once again, we are inviting all our Hospice supporters, friends and neighbours to join us at the 3rd Annual Hike for Hospice on Sunday, May 5th at Mud Creek Trail beside John McGregor Secondary School in Chatham.

“This event offers an opportunity to enjoy an afternoon of fun while raising funds to support the ongoing operational needs of our local Hospice. The hike also provides an opportunity for people to celebrate and honour loved ones in a special and meaningful way” shared Nathan McKinlay, event co-chair.

The walk is a family-friendly and accessible event with strollers, walkers and wheelchairs welcome on this pet-friendly trail. With multiple trail lengths to choose from, people of all fitness levels will enjoy the afternoon.

This year there are two additions to the hike; a 5 KM Fun Run as well as a Corporate Challenge.

“By adding the fun run and the Corporate Challenge to this year’s event, we hope it provides an opportunity to involve more people from our community. Chatham-Kent is very fortunate to have a local hospice that offers end-of-life hospice care at no cost to families. But this is only possible through funds raised through events like the Hike for Hospice” shared Amanda McKinlay, event co-chair.

Individuals and teams are welcome to register and raise funds online at www.hikeforhospiceck.com

Register before April 8th to be guaranteed a Hike for Hospice T-shirt. Paper registration and pledge forms are available at Chatham-Kent Hospice located at 34 Wellington Street East in Chatham.
