SUPPORTING HOSPICE CARE FOR THE LONG RUN!

Now in its nineteenth year, the Sunset House 5K Run and Fitness Walk  has traditionally had something for everyone: a fast, challenging, 3.1 mile course, plenty of food, refreshments and prizes—all within a fun and friendly family atmosphere.  This year the event will be held LIVE on Saturday, October 16th, 2021 at the Irondequoit United Church of Christ located at 644 Titus Avenue, Irondequoit, NY.  For those of you who are unable to join us on race day, a VIRTUAL option is planned from Saturday, October 9th through Saturday, October 16th!

All proceeds from the race go to Sunset House which provides alternative living arrangements for residents who are unable to receive hospice care services in their own homes. Focusing on quality of life rather than quantity of time, Sunset House supports the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of its residents, allowing them to maintain control during an important time of transition. As one of our community’s most popular and seasoned fundraising event of the year we need your help in meeting our fundraising goal of $15,000 to ensure that Sunset House Hospice continues to provide dignified comfort care for those in the final stages of life.   So whether you’re a runner, walker—or somewhere in between— please join us for the LIVE Race or participate VIRTUALLY — and put your best foot forward for a great organization.
