Step Out for Hospice

Thank you to all who made our 24th annual Step Out for Hospice an amazing day! Together, we raised over $70,000 for end-of-life care. You can view the race results on the New England Timing website.

Save the date for our 25th annual event on Sunday, Oct. 2, 2022. Our walk, run, and kids' fun run will kick-off at the Irish American Club of Woburn, 147 Main St. The benefit is presented by the Woburn Friends of VNA Hospice & Palliative Care, the Irish American Club of Woburn, and the Shamrock Running Club.
