On Sunday, May 4, walkers of all ages on the Sunshine Coast will be joining thousands of Canadians across the country as they come together to raise funds for hospice palliative care programs and services.

The Sunshine Coast Hospice Society is excited to be hosting this year's hike with the Sunshine Coast Credit Union as their title sponsor. The event takes place Sunday, May 4, from noon to 2:30 p.m. at Porpoise Bay Provincial Park.

The fun begins with Definitely Diva providing the music; the Sunshine Coast Lions Club will be cooking hot dogs, burgers and veggie burgers. At 1 p.m. there will be a short warm-up with everyone then heading out on an easy, flat, two-km walk around gorgeous Porpoise Bay Park. To wrap up the event there will be several door prizes.

Participants may sign up as individuals or as a team and registration is available online at www.coasthospice.com or in person on the day of the event.

The funds from this event will be used to provide compassionate, respectful end-of-life and bereavement support for residents on the Sunshine Coast. All of the funds raised will stay in our community.

To participate in the Hike for Hospice or for more information about the Hospice Society, see www.coasthospice.com.
