WASHINGTON COURT HOUSE — Ohio’s Hospice of Fayette County is holding its second virtual Hike for Hospice. The event began April 1 and runs through April 25.
This year, walkers can participate three ways: registering to walk, purchasing a memory walk sign, or donating to Ohio’s Hospice of Fayette County. Proceeds from the event will benefit patient and family services for the not-for-profit, community-based Ohio’s Hospice of Fayette County.
“Our Hike for Hospice event has been a community favorite for more than 30 years,” said Missi Knisley, executive director of Ohio’s Hospice of Fayette County. “This is a wonderful event to honor and remember our loved ones.”
Sponsors of the Virtual Hike for Hospice include Adena Fayette Medical Center, St. Catherine’s Manor, Court House Manor, Parrett Insurance, Quali-Tee Design Sportswear, Vermeer Heartland, and Fayette Home Health Care Supply.
Walker registration is now open. The cost to participate as a walker is $14 for both adults and youth.
Walkers are encouraged to keep track of their miles throughout the month of April. They can email their final mileage to STruax@OhiosHospice.org by May 2 to qualify for an award. The award for this year’s event will be given to the individual who logged the most miles.

Grace Community Church is located at 525 Glenn Ave., Washington Court House, OH 43160. T-shirts will not be available in the office for pickup, but will be available at this time and location only.
