Hospice Walk and Run Olean 2018

The HomeCare & Hospice Foundation will celebrate its 22nd annual Hospice Walk and Run (5K) on Saturday, May 19th at 10 a.m. on the Allegheny River Trail, located at the west entrance of St. Bonaventure University. Pre-registration will begin at 9 a.m. The event will help raise public awareness for hospice services and provide families the opportunity to honor lost loved ones.  All runners, walkers, strollers, wheelchairs and pets are welcome!  Tell your friends you walk for Hospice on the FB Page for the event, or see which of your friends are attending!

“I encourage everyone in our community to come out and join our walk,” Victoria Kearns, communications director, said. “Hospice can make all the difference in the last days and weeks of a person’s life. That medical and spiritual care comes with a high price tag. Thanks to the generosity of our compassionate sponsors and walk participants, we are able to ensure everyone who comes to us for end of life care receives all they need.”

Participants are encouraged to create teams and raise pledges from family, friends and co-workers.  You can sign up and view other teams on their website.  If you don't want to participate in the walk/run or can't, there is still an option to donate on the website as well.  Money raised from the event will support the agency in raising awareness of the available services and resources the agency provides throughout the community. 

The event is family-friendly and will include a live radio remote from one of the area’s top stations, pizza after the race, and trophies and awards. Vendors from throughout the community will be on-site participating in other raffles and providing great prizes.

Top pledge earners will win grand prizes, including two round-trip tickets anywhere in the United States, compliments of Southwest Airlines. Those who raise $50 or more will be placed in drawings and raffles for other great gifts. All walkers who get at least one donation will receive a gift, compliments of HomeCare & Hospice. 

Go crazy for a great cause and create a team with your coworkers, friends and family! To register, participate as a vendor, or donate a basket for our raffle, please visit www.homecare-hospice.org/hospice-walk-2018 or call Nick O’Keefe at 716-372-2106.
