Many of our members family and friends have experienced the wonderful services and care of Carpenter Hospice in Burlington. Supported by a huge team of volunteers and the community, Carpenter Hospice offers palliative services, bereavement and support at no cost to patients and families.

One of their annual fund-raising events to support the hospice is the Hike for Carpenter Hospice, to be held this year on Saturday, May 25th in Burlington. This 4.7 km walk is an easy stroll through Burlington residential areas – a great way to enjoy the spring weather.

You can pledge $50 to walk the walk or get a team together with family and friends, enjoy the day and support a great organization.  Lunch follows the hike!
