Register Today for the Annual Hospice Walk ~ In an effort to support our local United Hospice Service program and ensure that hospice care is available to those in need, a group of exceptional volunteers are coordinating the annual Hospice Walk fundraiser. This fundraiser welcomes participants to pay tribute to their loved ones by walking in honor or in memory of someone special while supporting a worthy cause.

The Hospice Walk is scheduled to take place on Saturday, May 11, 2019 in Marlette. Event registration will begin at 8:30 a.m. at Marlette Elementary School, located at 6230 Euclid Street. Participants can walk as little or as much as they would like on the beautiful outdoor walking trail, Gayle’s Trail, from 8:45 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. Recognition will be given to those who are being honored and memorialized by event supporters.

Sponsorship levels are as follows: Walk Supporter is $25 and includes one walk fee and commemorative tee shirt; Pink Heart Sponsorship is $100 and includes a customized sign featuring the name of your loved one, one walk fee, and a tee shirt or sweatshirt; Red Heart Sponsorship is $300 and includes your business logo printed on event signage and tee shirts, one walk fee, and tee shirt or sweatshirt. Sponsorships should be received no later than April 26th to receive full recognition on event signage and tee shirts.
