The annual Hike for Hospice returns to Fisherman’s Wharf Park in James Bay on Sunday (May 7).

The celebration, honouring those no longer with us, supports compassionate end-of-life care at Victoria Hospice.

The 3.5 km walk offers friendly competition and awards for the top individual and team fundraisers, as well as workplace and service club challenges. Four-legged participants can also compete for the coveted ‘pawsitive’ spirit or best-dressed dog awards.

Participants can also honour loved ones by leaving a note on the Tree of Remembrance.

The event includes entertainment by Mufaro Marimba, a silent auction, face painting, snacks and more.

Registration gets underway at 9 a.m. before the walk starts at 10 a.m.
