Step Out for Hospice Walk/Run

Put on your sneakers and make a difference at the 21st annual Step Out for Hospice on Sunday, September 30, 2018, in Woburn. You can help local residents facing a terminal illness by joining our:
  • 1-Mile Fun Run for ages 13 and under at 11:30. Free. A limited number of T-shirts will be available. Kids can also receive prizes, ribbon, and refreshments. (Register.)
  • 3-Mile Walk at noon. (Register.)
  • 5-Mile Road Race at 12:30 p.m. (Register.)
Preregister for the walk or road race for $30 or at the event for $40. Participants who register by Sept. 26 will be guaranteed a sweatshirt. 
Our course starts at the Irish American Club of Woburn, 147 Main St. (next to Walgreens). Runners, walkers, and their guests may join us after the race at the Irish American Club for live music, prizes, raffle, silent auction, refreshments, and more!
Extend the impact of your walk by:
  • Raising money as an individual or team. Create your own fundraising webpage and spread the word about your efforts to raise money for hospice through Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and email.
  • Enlisting your company as a corporate sponsor. (Contact Laura Wise, fund development manager, at 617-886-6460.)
If you can't join us on Sept. 30, you can still help:
  • Virtual walk/run at any time and location that's convenient for you, and we'll mail you a sweatshirt after the Sept. 30 event. (Register.)
  • Remember or honor someone special through a donation. (Make a donation.)
  • Make a donation in support of a walker, runner, or team. (View list.)
