Our annual Jiggety Jog & Fun Run is back this year, May 5-14, and we hope you can join us in supporting our beloved McClure Miller Respite House. The Run will be virtual, with special events happening throughout the week. RSVP HERE FOR ANY OF THESE EVENTS:

  • May 5 at 7pm, ‘Kickoff Panel’, featuring volunteer storytelling and a spiritual moment (via zoom, RSVP to receive the email link);
  • May 8 at 9am ‘Mother’s Day Yoga’ focused on grief and resiliency, led by Laughing River Yoga (under the Bayside Park Pavilion, Colchester), all are welcome;
  • May 14 at 10am ‘Closing Celebration’,  featuring a reflection labyrinth, remembrance activities, and a short ceremony (1110 Prim Rd, Colchester).

This fundraising event is the single largest fundraiser for McClure Miller Respite House, Vermont’s only Medicare-certified hospice home. Every dollar raised goes directly toward providing room, board, personal care and special services for residents, regardless of their ability to pay. A lot of work goes into making the event a success and we couldn’t do it without the help of you, our supporters!

How you can help – here’s how to get started:

  1. Register as an individual or team.
  2. Invite family, friends, colleagues, neighbors to join or support you.
  3. Decide which kind of exercise you’ll complete — running, walking, biking, hiking, doing push ups, etc.
  4. Ask for support to reach your personal fundraising goal.
  5. Take photos of you doing your activity.
  6. From May 5-14, tag #RunforRespite or @UVMHealthNetworkHomeHealthandHospice when posting photos online , or email us so we can share your work and you can be entered into raffles for some special prizes.
  7. Watch your fundraising and support for McClure Miller Respite House grow!

We hope you run, hike, bike, or participate in any activity that promotes health, mindfulness and well-being, from May 5-14 while raising essential funds for the McClure Miller Respite House.
