VIDEO: Cowichan Valley Hike for Hospice draws enthusiastic support

Many Valley residents mark the Hike for Hospice on their calendars because it’s such an enjoyable event.

A crowd of them turned out Sunday, May 6 to walk the trails through the forests at Providence Farm, remembering friends in hospice or who have died, and raising money for the Hospice Society at the same time.

Great weather, drumming and songs added to the atmosphere of the walk and no one was in a hurry for it to end.
