Following a canceled event in 2020 and a virtual hike in 2021, Androscoggin Home Healthcare + Hospice is planning its first in-person Hike for Hospice for Saturday, May 14, at Pineland Farms, 15 Farm View Drive in New Gloucester.

Although the hike is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., there is no designated start time — participants are encouraged to come and go as they please, according to the Lewiston-based organization.

While celebrating the memory of loved ones and raising critical resources for Androscoggin Home Healthcare + Hospice, participants can hike a traditional or ADA-compliant trail and hear music performances by The Veggies.

Face painting, refreshments, and mascot appearances on the Pineland Farms campus are also offered.

Proceeds from Hike for Hospice support Androscoggin’s hospice program, ensuring all Mainers have access to high-quality end-of-life care, regardless of economic circumstances.

Androscoggin’s Hike for Hospice is a family-friendly event, open to the public.
