  • Print

Hospice & Palliative Care Manitoba (HPCM) is holding its 11th annual Hike for Hospice fundraiser with a little help from Goldie.

Goldie will be in attendance at the hike, which will be held Sun., May 5 at Shaw Park. Registration is at 12:30 p.m. and the five-kilometre hike along Waterfront Drive begins at 1 p.m., with fun and food to follow.

"We’re having entertainment and face painting and a caricature artist and a barbecue," said HPCM communications co-ordinator Joan Lawless, adding that the Lord Selkirk Boys Pipe Band and the Promenade Dance Academy will take to the stage in front of the ballpark entrance.

The walk itself, which has averaged about 150 participants in previous years, is "a scenic, fun family-time event. Bring your kids, bring your pets…on a leash," Lawless said.

Walk-up registration is $20 for adults, $10 for 17 and under, and free for kids 11 and under.

HPCM, which is based at the Deer Lodge Centre, trains volunteers for hospices and personal care homes and will match a volunteer with people facing life-threatening illnesses or those grieving a loss. Services provided by the registered charity are free.

"Everybody in their lifetime will have to deal with the loss of a loved one and the grieving process, and we are here to help," Lawless said.

For more information or to register for the walk, call Lawless at 204-889-8525 ext. 232.
