Care Dimensions opens Walk for Hospice registration

Care Dimensions has opened registration for the 34th Annual Walk for Hospice, the annual fundraiser that benefits patients, their families and their caregivers, which will be held virtually allowing participants to individualize their walks before Sept. 19.

“This year it’s easier than ever to be a walker, donor and fundraiser, and the timing and the design of your walk is all up to you,” said vice president of philanthropy Donna Deveau. “We invite you to personalize your Walk for Hospice by mapping out the activity and the route that is as meaningful for you as your support is meaningful for us.”

Laurie King, whose Walk for Hospice team, KK’s Keepsake, has participated in the Walk since 2013, coordinated her participation with her 60th birthday on April 19 by completing her first 10K run in her hometown of Lancaster. Participating this year was especially important for her because she lost her dad in October 2019. King runs in memory of him in addition to a list of other people she cherishes and printed their names on the back of the T-shirt she wears on her runs. 

“This is my way of thanking Care Dimensions for all they do for others,” King said.

Walk, run or do any activity, whenever time allows, through Sept. 19, which will culminate with a virtual celebration that will be viewable online.
