Hike for Hospice
Take a Hike for Hospice!
On Sunday, May 7, 2017 people across Canada will walk in support of the 15th Annual Hike for Hospice.
Here in Burnaby, members of our community will gather in Central Park to build awareness and raise funds in support of the Burnaby Hospice Society.
Hike for Hospice Burnaby is a public family event. Hikers, walkers and wanderers of all abilities are welcome to participate!
All funds raised will remain locally to support the Burnaby Hospice Society so that they may continue their critical work of providing compassionate care to individuals and families during the dying and grieving process.
Hope to see you there!
