Registration begins at 11 a.m. with the Hike festivities kicking off at 1 p.m. The day begins with a moving Celebration of Life Ceremony, followed by words of inspiration and encouragement from our keynote speakers. A fun and lighthearted warm-up gets the crowd ready to hike, all the while surrounded by family, friends and fun games and activities. A light lunch is available for all who have registered.
The inspiring 1 km walk around the Stedman Community Hospice grounds is led by the high energy music of the Brantford Pipes & Drums Band as friends, family and other Hospice supporters cheer one another on as they walk, jog or run in memory of those they have loved and lost.
Take advantage of our Early Bird Check-In on Saturday, May 4 from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm at 99 Wayne Gretzky Parkway, in the St. Joseph's Lifecare Centre parking lot, off Chatham Street.
