Homeland Hospice 5K and Memory Walk
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 is celebrating 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. This year, we’ve created a special opportunity for you to honor the memory of someone you loved. Not only can you (and your team) walk or run in their memory, but you can also add your loved one’s name to this year’s t-shirts.
The 5K — is a measured five kilometers (3.1 miles), relatively flat course along the Susquehanna River, beginning and ending at the City Island Carousel Pavilion, with professional chip timing by Integrity Sports.
Race results posted on parunners.com. 1st, 2nd and 3rd place cash prizes will be awarded for the overall female and male runners.
The memory walk — is along a portion of the same course.
