Bethell HikersThe 13th Annual Hike for Bethell Hospice is on Sunday, May 7th in Inglewood at the Lloyd Wilson Centennial Arena. Held each year during National Hospice & Palliative Care Week, the hike is an important event for Bethell Hospice Foundation, raising awareness and funds for hospice palliative care in our community.

Bethell HikersThe goal this year is to raise $255,000 through a combination of sponsorships, pledges and donations.

Kelly Stronach, Senior Manager of Marketing & Communications at Bethell Hospice Foundation, explains, “Bethell Hospice is a place of caring, compassion, love, empathy, respect, and peace. We are grateful for those who believe in the importance of Bethell Hospice in our community, and by participating in the hike, they ensure Bethell Hospice programs and services will be here for the next families in need.”
