ALBERTON -- Forty participants braved chilly weather Sunday to take in the West Prince Hospice Association’s second annual Hike for Hospice. 

Organizers blame the cold and uncertain weather for the drop in numbers from the 48 who attended their inaugural event.

The hike raises awareness to the role hospice volunteers can play in the lives of families caring for terminally ill loved ones. Funds raised form the event support that work.

This year’s hike was moved to the Maplewood Manor property because of wet conditions on the Confederation Trail.

Distance walked was left up to the participants and the majority completed the full 10 laps around the manor property.
