The Hospice Heroes: Hospice Awareness 5K Run/Walk is a non-profit event that will take place on August 17, 2013 at 9 a.m. at Mount Trashmore in Virginia Beach. One hundred percent of the funds raised during this event will benefit the Heartland Hospice Memorial Fund. The Heartland Hospice Memorial Fund is a non-profit, public charity whose purpose is to assist those who are coping with terminal illness, death, and the process of grief and bereavement, and to support community-based services and education related to hospice care. In addition, our hope is that this race will raise awareness of hospice so that more individuals and their families know the hospice benefits available to them.
