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.

Forty hikers took part in this year’s Hike for Hospice.

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.
