(LEAMINGTON, ON) – The 2017 edition of Hogs for Hospice was held at Seacliff Park in Leamington over the weekend. The gathering of motorcycle enthusiasts featured the Tour the Tip  rally which saw 100s of bikes traveling to Point Pelee National Park and then making a stop in Colchester before returning via Harrow and Kingsville.

In addition to the tour, the weekend included Our Lady Peace headlining a concert Saturday night and a BBQ for participants. Sunday wound up the weekend with a pancake breakfast and church service before the departure for home.

Hogs for Hospice was conceived as a fundraiser in support of the Hospice of Windsor and Essex County campus in Leamington, with the first event held in 2016. It has grown into a world class motorcycle rally which has raised over $50,000 before this year’s gathering.
