Hospice of Homer extends a warm thank you to all the generous businesses and individuals who supported the first annual Hospice All Ages Summer Fun Run. The event was a huge success with almost 60 participants ranging in ages from 7 to 75.
Thank you to The Bear Creek Winery for providing their lovely space for celebrating the end of the run and for their specially prepared mead which was labeled for the event and is still available for purchase; the city of Homer, the Homer Volunteer Fire Department, Homer Community Schools and McDonalds for the signs, water jugs, barriers, etc; Fat Olives for the delicious mile-high chocolate cake; Paul Gregoire for use of the canopy; Glacierview Baptist Church and Kachemak City Center for parking space; and hospice volunteers Charlie Gibson and Vanessa Bale.
Special kudos to all the runners, walkers, strollers who participated in the event. It was a joy to see all the happy faces making their way toward Bear Creek Winery.
For all those runners, want-to-be runners and ramblers of all ages who could not make this years run, be sure to watch for the 2nd annual Hospice of Homer All Ages Summer Fun Run next August. You will not want to miss out on this.
If you are interested in volunteering, making a donation or learning more about Hospice of Homer, please contact us at 235-6899.

The wall of the Red Chris tailings pond is a little less than 350 feet, or about the height of a 35-story building. It follows the same design as the Mount Polley tailings dam, which broke in 2014, sending 24 million cubic meters of toxic mine tailings into the Fraser River watershed. It is designed, however, to hold 305 million cubic meters of mine waste — seven times more than Mount Polley. Both mines are owned by Imperial Metals. (Courtesy Photo | Garth Lenz via Salmon State)
