Hospice care focuses on quality of life when a cure is no longer possible. It addresses the total physical, emotional and spiritual needs of individuals, while assisting their loved ones to provide care and support in comfortable, familiar surroundings. Funds raised from the walk/run are used to support bereavement and volunteer services.
