June 20, 2015 – The day began at the check-in table. Hikers of all sizes and ages came to make the hike.

Some came on two wheels,
and some came with four legged friends.
T-shirts were handed out
and directions were eagerly given.
Some groups really got into the spirit and dressed up their t-shirts.
T-shirts, water, snacks awards and the entire event was made possible by our awesome sponsors:
Dignity Memorial Roto- Rooter Lucerne Community Clinic
Michael’s Insurance Services Mendo-Lake Credit Union
Strong Financial Network A Nice Care Home
Sutter Lakeside Hospital and Rocky Point Care Center
And the rest of our amazing sponsors …
A volunteer entertained the hikers before the hike.
And finally, they’re off…
Donations were tallied up to see who would win the awards when the hikers returned.
And the awards were really cool!
And the mighty hikers returned ….
and greeted with plenty of cold water …
…from the staff at Dignity Memorial.
Gathered for a group shot before the awards.
Award for most money raised by a team…
most money raised by an individual…
and the second place most money raised by an individual.
Best dressed team goes to the family who hulas together.
A big THANK YOU to all of our hikers and sponsors, volunteers and staff who all helped Hospice raise money to provide free grief counseling to the community and to pay for special needs of people who are living the last months of their lives.
Celebrate today and every day.
