Hike for Huron Hospice back with new name

Huron Hospice’s annual walking tour is back and renamed in honor of its late walking leader. It is now known as the June Robinson Memorial Hike at Huron Hospice.

Robinson, who died in 2022, remained dedicated to the event.

“The reason the rate hike is so important for June is because it’s a family event,” said fund development manager Christopher Walker. “We really want everyone to consider the Huron Hospice walking tour a family activity.”

Walker said they will have activities for everyone, including a scavenger hunt for the kids.

“Reaching out to support Huron Hospice on the hike helped strengthen the bonds with family and community that Grams cherish,” said Robinson’s granddaughters Heather and Patricia. “It brings people together.”

Funds raised will be used to cover their day-to-day essential expenses, including hospice care, nursing care and loss and grief support for loved ones.

“We couldn’t provide this care without the support of the community,” Walker said. “The government provides almost 50 percent of our income. We are asking the community to join us and provide the other 50 percent.”

The June Robinson Memorial Walk at Huron Hospice will be held on May 28th at 11am. This walking tour will be on the Mavis Taylor Trail at the Stanley Community Center in Varna. Hikers can go in groups or on their own. Prizes will be awarded to the teams and individuals who raise the most funds.
