Hospice 5K Meadows Run to Benefit Cooley Dickinson VNA & Hospice Programs

NORTHAMPTON — The seventh annual Hospice Meadows 5K run will take place on Saturday, Sept. 28. Online registration costs $30, and all proceeds will benefit either the Cooley Dickinson Hospice Program or the Garden: a Center for Grieving Children and Teens.

Whether you are a seasoned runner who is looking for a meaningful local cause to support, or a beginner who has been waiting for the perfect opportunity to start a couch-to-5K program, this is the run for you. Families are welcome, and the two-mile Walk to Remember is accessible for all who want to show their support for the hospice community.

The 5K course is flat and of easy-to-moderate difficulty, winding through the picturesque Northampton Meadows. It is recommended that runners bring water or sports drinks and sunscreen. Registration begins at 8 a.m., and the run begins at 9 a.m. Walkers will depart at approximately 9:10 a.m.
