This is the 10th anniversary year for the Hike For Hospice. In Olds yesterday, the local community got active to help out the cause.

Over $24,000 was raised thanks to Sunday's Hike For Hospice in Olds.

Chairperson Kathy Kemmere says 146 participants started out at the SportsComplex before running, walking or wheeling around the trails in town.

Funds raised in the community will stay here to help support the Olds & District Hospice Society.

The event was held in collaboration with Hospice Palliative Care week in the town of Olds.
