Hike for Hospice of Hamilton and Cincinnati

The 14th annual Hike for Hospice of Hamilton will be held at 10:30 AM this Saturday, September 22, at 1010 Eaton Road in Hamilton, OH.  The 2.5 mile walk through downtown Hamilton raises funds and awareness for Hospice of Hamilton, with proceeds from the hike helping Hospice of Hamilton provide care for those who cannot afford it, serve 1,500 children through support groups and other venues, and care for over 700 patients daily, among other services.  You are encouraged to walk in memory of a loved one who was affected by the care of Hospice, or just come out in support of Hospice!

Winky and Woody are cheerful Hospice volunteers!

This is a dog friendly event, as dogs play a major role in some of the work Hospice does. Hospice patients often find interacting with an animal easier and less painful. Pictured here are Winky and Woody, who are volunteers at Hospice and at Fernside, a center for grieving children.  Imagine the joy and smiles this pair brings to some heavy hearts!

Click here to register online for the Hike through September 20th, or register the morning of the event, beginning at 9:30 AM.  We hope you will be able to make it out Saturday in support of Hospice of Hamilton, and mark your calendar for October 6th for the Hospice of Cincinnati Hike and 5k Run in Blue Ash!  Click here for information and to register for the Cincinnati event, where you and your dog will receive goodies and have a chance to win raffle items, including micro-chipping and doggie daycare gift cards!   Help Hospice continue its work to “provide comfort, compassion and personalized end-of-life care to all those in need!”

One Response to Hike for Hospice of Hamilton and Cincinnati

  1. Mama, thank you for highlighting Hospice of Cincinnati and Hospice of Hamilton. It’s a great event and very animal friendly. Mostly it’s just a beautiful day–this year you will see a wave of yellow as hundreds of caregivers, children, spouses and parents and relatives don bright yellow T-Shirts and walk the 2.5 miles through the towns of Hamilton and Blue Ash. Quite emotional and heart warming to know that each of us has someone dear to remember. It’s very powerful. The dogs–especially in Hamilton–make it that much more special. Again, thank you for including this event on your blog!
