Hiking for hospice

The public is invited to support community hospice care in the ninth annual national Hike 4 Hospice, planned locally for May 1 at Blackie Spit Park in Crescent Beach.

The fundraiser features a one-, three- or five-kilometre walk/run in benefit of White Rock South Surrey Hospice Society, which supports Peninsula residents and their families facing advanced illness, grief and end of life.

The event – presented by the Rotary Club of White Rock Millennium and MCed by meteorologist Mark Madryga – is to kick off at 9 a.m. at 3136 McBride Ave. with registration, refreshments and music, followed by a 9:45 a.m. warmup, 10 a.m. hike and 11:15 a.m. pledge tally and award presentation.

All hikers receive a draw prize entry and hat.
