Hike2016        

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 are so proud to celebrate over 30 years of dedication to Sparrow Hospice Services!
