Who will you Hike for on May 7th?

Being together to remember someone special and to honour our personal connections to hospice and palliative care is at the heart of the Hike for Valley Hospice & Palliative Care.

Even if you don’t plan to hike, please stop by at 1pm at the Kentville Lions Hall for social time and enjoy the music.  You can also cheer on our hikers as they head out at 2 pm.
