rom Chilliwack and Sardis, to Agassiz and Hope, doctors all around are teaming up to get our communities moving.
Walk with your Doc is an annual event celebrating daily movement for better health. Led by the Chilliwack Division of Family Practice, doctors and other health care professionals are hosting free walks in Chilliwack, Agassiz and Hope and are walking side-by-side with their patients and the public.
Registered participants receive a free pedometer to count their steps towards a healthy lifestyle.
There are two walks in Chilliwack on May 9th, at Townsend Park and at Watson Glen Park, both starting at noon.
The Hike for Hospice Palliative Care is a unique fundraising event held across Canada that brings together organizations working collectively in hospice palliative care to raise funds and awareness by their community, for their community.
Last year’s hike raised a commendable $5,500 through a diverse mix of corporate sponsorships, in-kind donations, door prize donations and fund-raising efforts. This year’s event begins with late registration at 9:15 am for those who haven’t done so beforehand and the hike starts at 10:30 am. Following the one hour hike, food, entertainment and fabulous prizes await participants.
Registration is $10 per person, with children under 13 free and can be done through www.frasercanyonhospice.org
