The Hike/Bike for Hospice is a touching tribute to those who have ended life's journey. Memorial pickets line the pathway of Granger Meadows Park as the hikers walk: a lasting memorial to those we honor every year with love. Join us and hike or bike for remembrance and reflection. All participants will enjoy great music, wonderful food, and family-centered activities.

 

We'd like to extend a very special thank you for everyone who attended, volunteered their time or services, or generously sponsored the 2014 Hike/Bike for Hospice.
