Hospice Walkathon invites you to step out and help those in your community

The Barriere and District Hospice Society are having their annual fundraising Walkathon

It’s that time of year again.  The Barriere and District Hospice Society are having their annual fundraising Walkathon on Monday, May 11.

This is the society’s 16th walk and their only fund raiser each year.  Funds stay in the community to help Barriere and District Hospice Society with all the good work and help that they provide our area residents.

Everyone is welcome to walk; the more the merrier!  Walkers will meet at the Ridge at 6:30 p.m. to eat cookies before starting to walk at 7 p.m.

If you would like a pledge sheet please call Marnie at 250-672-0301.

The Hospice Society’s books and tapes are always available at the North Thompson Volunteer and Information Centre in the Ridge for loan to the public (there is a range of topics).

If you, or your family require anything from the Red Cross Loaner Cupboard (such as walkers, canes, etc.), please call Jane Milburn at 250-672-9391.

The Barriere and District Hospice Society would like to take this opportunity to thank the community for all the support they receive throughout the year.

They welcome new members to the group and if you would like more information, please call Jane.

Come on out and join the Walkathon  on May 11 at 6:30 p.m.; it’s time to step out for those members of our community who need some support.

See you there!
