Help HomeCare & Hospice raise funds for area patients and families by participating in the 21st annual Hospice Walk & Run. The 2017 walk & run steps off at 10am on Saturday, May 20th on the Allegheny River Trail at St. Bonaventure University. 

Participants can ask for pledges from family, friends and co-workers, and many walk in memory or honor of a loved one. Money raised from the event supports HomeCare & Hospice and helps the agency work at increasing awareness of available services and resources that the agency provides to the community.

Sign-in begins at 9am at the west entrance of campus. The three-mile course will accommodate strollers, wheelchairs, rollerbladers, bicyclists, joggers, walkers and pets. All are welcome.

The top pledge earners will be given the opportunity to win great prizes donated by area businesses. All walk/run registered participants will receive a gift compliment of HomeCare & Hospice.

Businesses, groups, clubs and families are encouraged to organize a team and walk as a group to compete for the “Hospice High Scorers Cup”.

Participants are encouraged to join us before and after the walk for more fun. Before the walk, you will have the opportunity to enter into the basket raffles, participate in some family fun activities, and, new this year, you can check out various vendors and businesses who will be represented at the walk! Post-walk fun will include an awards ceremony with refreshments, giveaways, a basket raffle, vendors, and kids’ games and entertainment

Participants may register online or by contacting the Communications Department at 1-800-719-7129 or joann [dot] mcandrew [at] homecare-hospice [dot] org (email).
