3rd Annual ‘Snowshoe Hike for Hospice’ Held Record Turnout!

Queensbury— High Peaks Hospice & Palliative Care had a record number of snowshoe enthusiasts attend their 3rd Annual Hike for Hospice.

On February 26 nearly forty outdoor enthusiasts attended the event and helped raise funds for neighbors and friends who are faced with life-limiting illness. “Having Froggy 107 here definitely improved our turnout,” says Sunday Conine, Development Coordinator for High Peaks Hospice & Palliative Care. “Jackie Donovan, Kate Sullivan and ‘Froggy’ himself joined us on a gorgeous Adirondack morning as we welcomed our supporters” Sunday adds. Adirondack Broadcasting’s Froggy 107 team handed out prizes and Phantoms hockey tickets to several participants. “We had 10 participants return from last year’s event—they had so much fun!” says Sunday.

This event has grown in popularity over the last few years, from just a hand-full of supporters to whole families. Up Yonda provides a wonderful guided tour with an amazing view of the lake as the highlight. “We are grateful to Matt Sprow and the other educators with Up Yonda who assist us with this event each year,” Sunday concluded.
