The Community Health Foundation of Wright County will hold its 4th annual Steps for Hospice 5K Family Fun Walk/Run on Sunday May 5th, at Sturges Park in downtown Buffalo. Registration will begin at noon and kick off at 1 pm for our runners, with the Wright County Ambassadors leading our walkers through the park and around the north side of Buffalo Lake. You can walk/run as an individual or as a team. Invite your friends, co-workers and family to form a team of 4 or more and join the fun! Team registration will be accepted and encouraged through April 22nd. The fee is $25 per person and you can register or donate on-line using the “Register Now” button on the Steps for Hospice page at www.chfwc.org. Pre-registration will guarantee you a T-shirt at the event. Same day registration will be possible.

Proceeds from the event will be used for the sustainability of our new end-of-life hospice wing that will be built on the Lake Ridge Care Center campus this year! This event has raised over $10,000 for the past three years and we look forward to another successful day. Participants are encouraged to gather pledges and the registration fee will be applied toward the total raised per individual or per team. We have incentive levels of recognition for your efforts and donations. There will be prizes, fun and food for the whole family with a butterfly release at the close of the event. Butterflies are a symbol for hospice reminding us that life has many stages. For more information contact Laura Jones at 763-684-1477 or email ljones@chfwc.org.
