Bedford Hike for Hope
- This event has passed.
May 7, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
The 5th annual Bedford Hike for Hope will be hosted at Claytor Nature Center, benefiting the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.
This is their second year hosting the Hike, and they are happy to have grown a bit, along with adding elements to this year’s event.
Please join a team, create your own, or make a donation.
The Hike will begin and end at the Cloverlea Farmhouse Memorial Gardens. There will be music, snacks and water and coffee, tables for our sponsors, local organizations, and counselors will be available on site. An Honor Bead Ceremony will be added this year, as well as a Memorial Wall at the starting area for your posters, pictures, and other tributes to loved ones.
The Bedford Hike will have two trail options again this year. One trail is a more moderate hiking trail through wooded areas (2.5 mi), and the other is a flatter, easier hike that is jogging stroller-friendly, through open fields and woods (1.6 mi). You may also choose not to hike and simply remain in the starting area. Both trails culminate at the Reflecting Pool back at the start.
Hike participants are welcome to gather here for as long as desired (the event officially ends around noon, but gates to the property close at 5 pm). All are invited to relax, reflect, make new contacts, and share your stories with others.
This event is rain or shine. Registration will be available on the day of the event beginning at 9:30 am.
