Hike for Hospice

Take a hike!

Good Samaritan Hospice’s fifth annual Roanoke Hike for Hospice is Sunday, Sept. 8 at Explore Park. This hike is great for beginners or anyone who wants to get outside for a good cause.

The day begins with a personal hike (easy .5 mile option and intermediate 1.06-mile hike) through the heart of Explore Park to the main event area located at the Historic Houtz Barn. There will also be optional group excursion hikes led by Walkabout Outfitters and the Society of American Foresters.

After the hike, enjoy a BBQ lunch, ice cream, live music, yoga, and plenty of games and activities. The day will conclude with a raffle prize drawing and a memorial ceremony with a dove-release.

The event kicks off at 1:30 p.m. and day of registration is available. Proceeds from the event support Good Sam’s extensive bereavement program, serving Roanoke Valley residents who are coping with loss and grief.
