Community members made a loop around the lake, giving them time to think about the significant work that the hospice society does in Nanaimo.
Nanaimo Community Hospice held its fundraiser Hike for Hospice on Saturday at Westwood Lake. Almost 200 participants participated, choosing either a one-kilometre route or the full six-kilometre trail.
Burgers and refreshments were served up at the start/finish line.
Nanaimo Community Hospice offers comfort, compassion and support to those who are dying, care-giving or grieving the loss of a loved one. For more information on the Nanaimo Community Hospice Society and its fundraisers, visit www.nanaimohospice.com.
