Sharing the Journey

Since 2001, this community-driven race has grown to be our signature event with support from corporate and individual sponsorship, registration, participant fundraising, and memorial contributions. Some of the ways you impacted our community, last year alone, by supporting Hospice of the Piedmont include:

  • Nearly 1,800 patients and their families were cared for. Thanks to private philanthropy, all services can be covered – even those not covered by insurance.
  • More than 3,600 calls were made by bereavement staff, counselors, and volunteers to support grieving members of our community last year. Our art therapists have conducted over 1,600 sessions with children and their families. Our Center for Grief and Healing and Center for Children provide free grief support services at no cost to anyone in our community.
  • Complementary programs like our Veterans Services, and Music By the Bedside, provide customized care for patients and their families. These programs are made possible only by the generous support of our community.
