The short rain shower that rolled through during registration only served to help everyone mingle and connect with fellow hikers under the shelter! As if by request, the rain stopped just in time for all to enjoy the opening ceremonies and then head off on the fantastic trails of Laurel Creek Conservation Area.
A full spectrum of those touched by heart disease; survivors, family members, friends and many caregivers of St. Mary’s Regional Cardiac Care Program were on hand to hike together as a community.
Together, this years hikers and supporters raised over $105,000 in support of Cardiac Care at St. Mary’s!
And donations continue to trickle in through the website
Congratulations to all of the Fundraising and Draw Prize winners!
