Roanoke Hike for Hospice at Explore Park, September 8

Date: September 08, 2019

Time: 1:30 pm

Good Samaritan Hospice’s 5th annual Roanoke Hike for Hospice is scheduled for Sunday, September 8th from 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm at Explore Park, located just off the Blue Ridge Parkway. The day begins with a personal hike (easy and intermediate routes available) through the heart of Explore Park to the main event area.

At the main event hikers will enjoy catered BBQ lunch (vegetarian jackfruit BBQ option too), Homestead creamery ice cream, live bluegrass music, vendors including Music and Massage booths representing Good Sam’s own Complementary Therapists, a yoga demo facilitated by Uttara Yoga Studio instructors, and games such as jumbo jenga and corn hole. There will also be optional group excursion hikes led by Walkabout Outfitters and the Society of American Foresters for participants who want to further explore the trails throughout the park. The day will conclude with a raffle prize drawing and a moment of reflection with a dove-release.

This year’s Roanoke Hike for Hospice coincides with national Grandparents Day! In honor of the guidance and love that grandparents bring to our families, Good Sam will have a “Wisdom Sharing” booth setup and fall themed complimentary family photos at this year’s event.

Funds raised from the 5th annual Roanoke Hike for Hospice will support Good Sam’s extensive bereavement program, serving Roanoke Valley residents who are coping with loss and grief.
