Community Hospice grateful for support

Published 9:44am Wednesday, October 23, 2013

Community Hospice offers many thanks for the success of our Fourth Annual Run in Remembrance 5K that was held on Saturday, Oct. 19 in Ironton.

First we would like to thank Mayor Rich Blankenship, the city of Ironton, the Ironton Police Department and MTS Ambulance for their support and participation in this event. Our race brought 151 runners and walkers to the city of Ironton on Saturday.

This race would not have been possible without the support of our sponsors. Therefore, we would like to thank Our Lady of Bellefonte Hospital, Elite Rehab and Fitness, Duke Energy, Ohio University Southern, McGinnis, Inc., Western & Southern, Awards Plus Tees, Citizens Deposit Bank, Bob Clyse, The Ironton Tribune, Genesis, J & J General Maintenance, Inc, Blue Arc Welding and General Sales, Co. Also a very special thanks to those who donated items needed for the race, Pepsi, Bartram and Sons Grocers, Pick N Save, WalMart and McDonalds.

Thanks to the many area businesses that donated items for our door prizes.

We would like to also thank all of the volunteers who helped keep the race course safe for the participants. Students and teachers from Ironton High School and Hospice employees and volunteers worked very hard to make this a successful race.

Thanks to the community for your cooperation in working with the volunteers to keep our race route clear of traffic. All of the race participants were running or walking in memory of a loved one, so this was a very special event for everyone.

It is with the continued support of the communities we serve that Community Hospice can provide quality end-of-life care to those in need. Thank You.
