It wasn’t just adults joining the hike. There were several kids and four-legged friends as well. Pictured above are some of the children enjoying the Companion Pets that were out for everyone to see. Companion pets—cats, dogs and seals—go with patients and to care partners. The purpose is to provide fun and comfort. It also serves the purpose of helping with the right-brain functions, such as cognitive thinking.

Hike for Hospice was held this past Sunday. Three hundred thirty people registered for the hike and 162 memory walk signs were purchased. The memory walk featured every sign lining the sidewalk in front of Grace Community Church. Pictured are some of the walkers joining in prayer. The hike raised just under $17,000, according to Stacy Havens, who heads up special events and donor relations. That money will stay in this service area and go toward patient care. Havens said, “I am so happy—we have such a generous community. It’s amazing.”
