Run or Walk on Your Own Schedule!

We are so looking forward to this! September 1 – September 15, 2021 runners or walkers can log their Virtual 5k whenever they choose. The only rule on timing is that your run or walk must happen after you’ve registered and before the end of day on September 15. You’ll submit your time, (link TBA), and it really couldn’t be easier!

All registrants will receive a t-shirt ($5 for shipping, free local pickup TBA). Families can run or walk together, or friends, extended families, and coworkers! Challenge each other by setting up a group or team…c’mon, we want to see some competition! The best part is that all proceeds go to Joshua’s House Hospice for the terminally ill. Our goal is $100,000.

One Step Closer

We are thrilled to share that we have purchased the manufactured homes that will make up the Joshua’s House Hospice Village and are working diligently to finalize arrangements on our property. That is where Be a Hero for the Homeless Virtual 5k comes in! Our fundraising goal is $100,000, all of which will go towards the furnishings for our future campus. Refrigerators, stoves, washers and dryers, hospital beds, etc. As well as clothing, food, personal items and much more. These supplies are crucial to the success of Joshua’s House Hospice and we hope that you’ll help us reach this $100,000 by virtually participating!
