White Rock, B.C. – The 16th annual Hike for Hospice takes place on Sunday, May 6 from 9 a.m. to noon at Blackie Spit – Crescent Beach in White Rock. Bring the family dog to this accessible event (wheelchair, stroller and scooter). In addition to a community hike for an important cause, there will be prizes, food, face painting and promotional gifts supplied by multiple real estate brokerages including Sutton Group – West Coast Realty (White Rock). REALTOR® Edie Takahashi encourages people to join in the fun.
“This hike supports the Peace Arch Hospice Society,” says Edie. “Several of our brokerages are coming together to show what a positive impact the real estate profession brings to our community…. We will be walking under the umbrella of REALTORS CARE! We have a tent and all kinds of promotional goodies on the table for the public as handouts!”
In 2017, Edie spearheaded a team of 16 REALTORS® and friends, who together raised $4,070 for Hike for Hospice and handed out 150 gift bags to participants, who enjoyed the 5-km hike along the picturesque beach. Edie is pleased to hear that the organizers of this fundraiser are expecting an even larger turnout than last year.
“Hospice touches all of us and it is run mainly by volunteers. We wanted to show that we recognize the hard work of volunteers and medical staff and are so thankful for all of their heartfelt efforts.”
“We recently lost one of our dear colleagues who walked with us last time. She had cancer. Hospice was there at the end to take care of her and we are all so very thankful for the services they give our community. Our Sutton team will be walking in her remembrance.”
