The annual Hike for Hospice is quickly approaching. The Hike will be held Sunday, April 24 at 3 p.m. beginning and ending at Merchants National Bank, 128 S. North St. in Washington Court House.
Registration has begun and will run through Friday, April 22.
Registration is $10 for all ages and includes the event t-shirt along with pizza and drink following the event. Entries must be received by the cut-off date in order to receive a t-shirt.
Forms may be picked up at the Hospice of Fayette County office at 222 N. Oakland Ave., or they are available online at www.hospice-fayco.org or through the Hospice of Fayette County Facebook page.
The Hike has become a long-standing tradition around Fayette County and could not be possible without the support of the community and sponsors that help pull it together each and every year.
“We are so grateful for the support that the community and our sponsors give us. We could not do what we do without their continued love and support. Without the help of sponsors, Doug Marine Motors, Pettit’s, Merchant’s National Bank, St. Catherine’s Manor, Cargill, Quali-Tee Design, Fayette County Memorial Hospital, Bell’s Service Station and Wal-Mart Distribution Center, we could not pull this event off every year. They go above and beyond the call of duty to make this event a great success,” said Holly Cottrill, Marketing and Fundraising Coordinator.
Hospice of Fayette County will once again host a “Memory Walk” down Community Drive, in front of Grace Community Church as part of the Hike route.
“We will be honoring family, friends and those loved ones who are no longer with us,” explained Cottrill. The sign will be personalized with a loved one’s name and will be placed along the route for all Hikers to see as they pass by. To place a Memory sign along Memory Lane there is a request for a $6 donation per name.
The deadline for ordering these signs is Friday, April 15. Your order can be placed at the office of Hospice of Fayette County. You do not have to participate in the Hike to purchase a memory sign.
For more information on registration or Memory Lane, call the Hospice of Fayette County office at 740-335-0149 or visit the website at www.hospice-fayco.org. Hike Registration forms can also be picked up at the office, 222 N. Oakland Ave., Washington Court House.
