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.
