The annual 'Hike for Hospice' for Hospice Renfrew moved to a virtual one this year but still managed to raise over $150,000 for the facility. 

The Hospice tweeted on Tuesday that this year's virtual event held on Oct. 10 raised $156,000. 

The cash goes to help Hospice Renfrew with operating costs as the province only funds about 50 per cent of expenses. 

Executive Director Marjorie Joly thanked the community for their continued support she said will make an immediate difference in the lives of the families they serve.
