Be a hero!
Be a hero! Register for the Citizens Memorial Health Care Foundation’s “Heroes for Hospice” 5K/10K Run on Saturday, May 5.

Participants can register at http://conta.cc/2mUKs2e. All ages and levels of physical activity are encouraged to attend. Walkers, strollers and pets are welcome!
CMH Hospice caregivers strive to help patients remain as comfortable as possible at home, or in a homelike setting, with family and friends. The program also provides support to the family after a death of their loved one through a bereavement program. Proceeds from the race will provide donations in our area to ensure that physical, emotional, spiritual and bereavement care is given to all terminally ill patients and their families.
