The 28th annual Hike for Hospice will take place at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, May 17 at the SOMC Hospice Center. Check-in will begin at 8:30 a.m.
“Hike for Hospice is a significant fundraiser for SOMC Hospice. The Hike provides an opportunity for community members to gather together, honor their loved ones and support an amazing organization,” Hospice Relations Coordinator Scott Hilbert said. “We are looking forward to this year’s hike. It always generates a large crowd and a lot of fun.”
Participants of the hike raise funds by asking friends to sponsor an amount per kilometer walked or by giving an outright donation. Participants also can join in groups of three or more, presenting banners, shirts or other forms of team-promotion.
Each team will receive one complimentary 8×10 photo and all hikers and supporters will be eligible for various prizes, which will be presented at the end of the hike.
