Runners & Walkers, Friends, Family
& Your Dog, too!

Please join Homeland Hospice for an uplifting event while supporting and raising funds for benevolent services provided to our hospice patients and their families. One of three Homeland Center outreach programs, Homeland Hospice just celebrated 10 years of service to our community. Much of our extra care—massage, music and pet therapy, extra in-home relief hours, professional photography, and more—is dependent on the generosity of folks like you.

Whether you are a serious runner, or participate to commemorate the memory of a loved one, ALL are welcome! Join us individually or with a team. You have a special opportunity to honor the memory of someone you loved by having their name placed on the front of the event t-shirt. Not only can you (and your team) walk or run in their memory, but you can also honor their memory in this unique way.

Event details:
