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 invite anyone who has lost someone they love to attend this day of rememberance.  If you wish, you may purchase a memorial picket on which your loved one's name will be displayed each and every year.  These pickets can be purchased by clicking here or by calling the Sparrow Foundation at 517.364.3632.  

 

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