Homeland Hospice

Logo

Please join Homeland for an uplifting event while supporting and raising funds for benevolent services provided to our hospice patients and their families.

Homeland Hospice is a non-profit outreach program of Homeland Center, providing more than 10 years of service to our community. Much of our enhanced care-massage, music and pet therapy, extra in-home relief hours, professional photography, and more-is dependent on the fundraisers and donations.

THE 5K is a measured five kilometers (3.1 miles), relatively flat course at the Rossmoyne Business Center, beginning and ending at 5000 Ritter Road, Mechanicsburg . Race start time is 8:30 AM.

THE MEMORY WALK
is a shorter distance along a portion of the same course.

Serious runners, or folks wanting to commemorate the memory of a loved one, individually or as team participate in this annual event. T-shirts, printed with a loved one’s name are also part of the tradition.

POST RACE/WALK ACTIVITIES - After the run/walk, we celebrate the lives of loved ones lost, and enjoy food and refreshments. Cash prizes for winning runners and fun awards are also presented.

Plenty of free parking is available. Great opportunity to serve with co-workers or as a family. Children are welcome to help provided they are supervised/with an adult. Make colorful (large printed) signs to encourage the runners, such as: "You got this!", Way to go!", "You made it!", and etc.... Volunteers are provided a free event t-shirt. Sign-up early so we can have the correct size shirt for you!

First 75 people to respond will be placed on the volunteer list. Additional names placed on a "back-up" list.
