You can help keep the doors of Hospice Renfrew open by simply lacing up your shoes and going for a walk. Hike for Hospice is May 6th at the Ma-Te-Way Activity Centre. It’s their tenth year and Fund Development Officer for the Hospice, Shane Lambert says they want to do something as big, if not bigger than last year.

Registration begins at 12:30 and Lambert says this is by far their largest and most important fundraiser of the year.

Annually, they need to raise about $600 000 to cover operating costs. You can choose between a 3km hike or a 5km run. Simply visit their website and download your pledge form. Hospice Renfrew offers compassionate palliative and end of life care for residents of Renfrew County free of charge.
