On Saturday, September 9th, 2017, Halifax Health - Hospice will celebrate the Spirit of Caregiving with the 16th Annual 5K Run and Walk. This much anticipated event raises funds for the Family Caregiver Program, which provides one-on-one care for patients and entitles caregivers to much needed respite time.
As the first race in the Daytona Running Series, this event brings out a wonderful mixture of the area's top competitive runners, as well as non-competitive runners and families. While competitive runners will be timed for placing and to receive points in the Daytona Running Series, the event also offers an opportunity for non-competitive runners, walkers, families and children to participate through the 5K walk/run and 1/8 mile Kiddie Dash.
This will be the second year as part of the Live Your Life Well Race Series (see below).
Funds raised from the 5K Run & Walk will benefit the Family Caregiver Program which plays an integral role in the health of both the patients and their caregivers. This relief program helps the caregivers so they can better help their loved ones through the end-of-life journey.
