With Calgary Stampeders fullback Rob Cote once again leading the way, the 12th annual Hike For Hospice takes place this Sunday at Fish Creek Provincial Park – Glennfield Area A and B.
Check-in and pre-Hike activities begin at 9 a.m. and the hike will start at 10 a.m. Cote, the Stamps’ long-time player representative for Hospice Calgary, will be joined by teammates Bo Levi Mitchell, Rene Paredes, Charlie Power and Adam Thibault as well as members of the Stampeders Outriders and Ralph the Dog.
“I’m extremely proud to be heading into my 10th Hike for Hospice,” says Cote, “and I can assure you this will be far from my last. It’s been incredibly rewarding to see this event grow over the years and it’s always an honour for me to be a part of it.”
Cote continues to be the club’s representative with Hospice Calgary, working actively with the organization year-round. The Stampeders have been involved with Hospice Calgary since 2007.
The 5-km walk raises funds for Hospice Calgary and supports individuals and families whose lives are transformed by a life-threatening illness or the death of someone close to them.
