Huron Hospice will be hosting their annual Hike and Bike fundraising event this summer.

In a release, the hospice says after two years of isolated hike events, this year will be live on May 29th. The hike will take place on the trails at the Varna Community Centre. However, people who are still nervous about COVID can continue to “Hike Where They Like”. The organizers have added the bike option on scenic Huron County roads which will start and finish at the community centre. Interested participants can form teams of their friends and family, and hike or bike to get pledges to benefit the hospice.

There will be prizes for the team and the individual who raise the most money. To register for the hike, go to the Huron Hospice website Just follow the link to pledge or create a team.

“After two years of COVID we are excited to be hiking in-person and have chosen the Mavis & Taylor Trails in Varna because there is a mix of easy and moderate hiking. There are a number of scenic road routes close by for cyclists,” says hike organizer Christopher Walker. “We want to celebrate hiking in person and also celebrate coming out of one of the most challenging winters in Huron Hospice history. Hikers and bikers will finish their ride or hike at the community centre and swap stories while enjoying a barbecue. We will also share more photos of the newly renovated hospice.”
