Hike for Hospice a chance to remember a loved one

Take a Hike…for Hospice. Hiking for Cowichan Valley Hospice makes a world of difference.

The 6th annual event takes place at Providence Farm on Sunday, May 4, from 10 a.m.- 1 p.m. Take a 2 or 4 kilometre walk on the gentle rolling trails and finish off with a free barbecue lunch donated by the Malahat Lions.

The day rounds out with toe tapping entertainment by Bill Levity and Warren DuMailo, face painting for the kids, and a relaxing foot soak (available by donation). A labyrinth on the edge of the woods provides a meditative alternative to the trails.  

Give tribute to a friend, walk in memory of a loved one, or take some reflective time for yourself. Gather together a team, collect pledges and donations and come walk with us to help Cowichan families through a difficult time. Families like the Scotts who lost their beautiful Gillian last year:

Allan, Alex and family thank you all so very much for your incredible support of Team Gillian. Although unable to hike last year, Gillian was present and enjoyed the day. She did muster up the strength to walk the labyrinth with our son Alex.  

Before she passed, we promised Gillian we would do our utmost to organize a big team for the 2014 Hike for Hospice and contribute to the fundraising event’s success. We hope that when you come hike on May 4 you will think of our beautiful Gillian and take a moment to remember other loved ones and friends that have been lost.

Hospice, no matter where it is in your community, can help to make a sad and difficult journey just that much more bearable. Cowichan Valley Hospice certainly did that for our family in many ways and we feel privileged to contribute to this wonderful event.
