Over 200 people came out, despite falling snow, to hike the trails in the Kerry Wood Nature Centre’s Gaetz Lakes Sanctuary.

Hike for Hospice is a national event to raise awareness of the need for better access to quality end-of-life care for Canada’s aging population. It also serves to honour the hospice palliative care volunteers and health-care providers.

All funds stay in the Red Deer community and the $25,000 from this year will fund 70 days of hospice care.

Last year, the hike raised over $36,000.
