Support Respite House: Annual 5K Fun Run & Walk Registration is Now Open

We may be bundled up against the cold and snow right now, but warmer temperatures and spring sunshine are right around the corner. That means the Development team is hard at work planning for our signature event—the 5K Fun Run & Walk to benefit the Respite House.

Joggers, walkers, bikers and families with strollers and dogs in tow all take to the sidewalks of Colchester to raise funds to support Respite House and vital residential hospice care in our community. This year’s event is Saturday, May 11 at Malletts Bay School in Colchester. Registration begins at 8 am and race time is 9 am.

For nearly three decades the McClure Miller Respite House has provided a warm home-like environment. Expert medical care and symptom management are provided in a beautiful, light-filled setting along with made-to-order meals, complementary therapies like massage and Reiki, spiritual support and more.

Help us reach our fundraising goal of $75,000. Every dollar raised at this event ensures compassionate, high-quality hospice care will be available to your friends and neighbors for years to come, regardless of ability to pay.

We hope to see you there!
