Good Samaritan Hospice’s fourth annual Roanoke Hike for Hospice will begin with a personal hike (easy and intermediate routes available) through the heart of Explore Park to the main event area located at the Historic Houtz Barn.
Once at the main event area, hikers will enjoy catered lunch off the grill (veggie burgers included), 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 at this year’s event. Celebrate Grandparents Day at the Roanoke Hike for Hospice by stopping by the “Wisdom Sharing” booth to share a story, special memory, or good ole fashioned wisdom from your own grandparents.
For those who are able to participate with their grandparents we will be offering fall themed family photos. If you are not able to hike with your grandparents, we invite you to please bring a photograph or memento to represent your beloved grandparents in the complimentary family photos.
Funds raised from the fourth annual Roanoke Hike for Hospice will support Good Sam’s extensive bereavement program, serving Roanoke Valley residents who are coping with loss and grief.
