Parkview Whitley Hospice plans run/walk

The running events are being held to increase awareness of the benefits of Parkview Whitley Hospice services, recruit hospice volunteers and raise funds for Parkview Whitley Hospice.

Participants are encouraged to honor the memory of a loved one by adding a commemorative sign in the Pumpkin Patch at the event by contributing $35 per person commemorated. A loved one’s name also may be added to individual T-shirts, which are orange and long sleeved. The cost is an additional $8 to have a loved one’s name printed on the T-shirt. 

All proceeds from the events will benefit Parkview Whitley Hospice, which provides family-centered care for the patient, and emotional and spiritual support to everyone involved. Parkview Whitley Hospital includes nurses, social workers, chaplains and trained volunteers.

Awards will be presented to the top finishers in the following age groups: Elementary School, Middle School, High School, 19-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, 60-69, 70-79, 80-89 and 90+.
