7th Annual Hospice 5K Memorial Run
Join us on Saturday, June 15, for the 7th Annual Hospice 5K/1K Memorial Walk to honor and remember loved ones. This event, coordinated by Bethesda Hospice Care, includes a 5K option (partial pavement and partial gravel with a few hills), or a 1K option (entirely pavement). Other activities include a ribbon ceremony, Veterans’ table, children’s activity table, music, and much more.
This event is free and open to anyone who has lost a loved one, not just those receiving services by Bethesda Hospice Care, and who would like to participate in his/her memory.
