WINCHESTER – This year’s Hike for Hospice at the Joel Steele Community Centre brought out 40 hikers who brought in around $9,800 for the Dundas County Hospice Sun. May 5.
“The event was a huge success with great weather,” Dundas County Hospice executive director Lisa Casselman said.
After registering, participants took part in a warm-up lead by Marilyn Parisien. During the workout she was joined by North Dundas Mayor Tony Fraser, South Dundas Deputy-Mayor Kirsten Gardener and her daughter Reagan Cadieux.
The hikers were led out to the starting point for their 2.5 kilometre or 5 kilometre routes by piper Hugh Metcalfe.
A barbecue courtesy of Greg’s Quality Meats was set up in the Lions Club Pavilion for hikers once they had crossed the finish line.
