Step Out for Hospice

Thank you to all who made the 26th annual Step Out for Hospice an amazing day! Together, we raised more than $70,000 for end-of-life care. Save the date for the 27th annual walk/run on Sunday, Oct. 6, 2024, and follow us on FacebookInstagramLinkedIn, or Twitter for event updates and the ways your charitable support makes a difference in our community.   

Step Out for Hospice is presented by the Woburn Friends of VNA Hospice & Palliative Care, the Irish American Club of Woburn, and the Shamrock Running Club.    


Sponsorships support more than the event; they make it possible for us to ensure local residents who are experiencing the challenges of life-limiting illnesses and loss receive the exceptional care and support they need and deserve. To learn more about sponsorship opportunities for businesses, individuals, and organizations, please contact Laura Wise, manager of fund development, at 617-886-6460.
