Can I walk with my family and friends?

Due to the pandemic we suggest you check your local health officials to ensure safety for you and your loved ones. Often families who have lost family members at Sakura House will choose to hike in their memory, please do so safely. Please try to register your family and friends individually so that we can make sure to supply everyone with a t-shirt.

Does it cost money to hike?

No, it is free to register and hike. Your registration includes a free t-shirt. We do ask that you try to ask your family members, friends and co-workers to sponsor you as a hiker and make a donation to you or your team. Even the smallest donations make a difference!

Can my hike team wear their own special t-shirts?

Yes, of course! Feel free to wear your own special t-shirts if that is something you would like to do. But, everyone will get a special Hike for Hospice event t-shirt at the event to wear if they wish.

How do I select my t-shirt size?

When you register, you will get the chance to fill in your t-shirt size. While we attempt to make sure everyone gets their correct size, we may run out of certain sizes.

This event will go ahead of there is only rain; but, if there is a thunderstorm, please keep an eye on our social media accounts and website for updated information and a plan of action.
