“Hospice touches a lot of lives in our community,” Coordinator of Hospice Relations Ann Luther said. “The hike gives the community a chance to give back. It allows them to honor the memories of their own loved ones while raising funds and support for current hospice patients and their families.”

Hike for Hospice T-shirts go on sale Monday and can be purchased from the SOMC Main Campus. Shirts are $15 each.
