13th Annual Hike for Hospice: May 26, 2024

Hike for Hospice is Hospice Northwest Services’ only major fundraising event of the year. Together, we have raised over $600,000 for palliative care in our community since 2012! Once again this year, we are offering both an in-person and a virtual event for all those who want to support the Hike.

Join us on May 26th at St. Ignatius High School for our pre-Hike festivities from 9 - 10:30 am, with last chance for registration from 9 - 10, followed by Opening Ceremonies from 10-10:30 am.  We will then meet across the street at Boulevard Lake Park to begin our 13th Annual Hike for Hospice!

Minimum suggested donation/pledge amount to participate is $40. 

The 2024 Hike for Hospice will feature a lovely memorial service, refreshments, a pet area, a kid's area with clowns, a bagpiper, musical entertainment and more!
