Now more than ever our community needs strength and connectedness, while maintaining a feeling of safety and security. In order to ensure a safe experience for everyone, our race is going VIRTUAL for 2021! Participants are free to run, walk, bike, or hike, the 5-kilometers/3.1 miles any time between May 7 and May 9, 2021. Mileage can be completed indoors or outdoors.
Registrants will continue to contribute to a great cause: supporting the end-of-life, palliative, and grief services provided by Hospice of the Piedmont that have cared for our community for 40 years.
Anyone who shares photos of their race experience to 5K@hopva.org by May 10, 2021 is eligible for a prize in the following categories:
- Most Spirited Individual,
- Largest Team,
- Top Fundraising Team,
- Most Scenic Route,
- Most Creative Way to Complete a 5K, and
- Best Pet Partner
Since 2001, this community-driven race has grown to 350 participants, over 50 volunteers, 150 spectators, and raises over $100,000 annually from corporate and individual sponsorship, registration, participant fundraising, and memorial contributions.
By participating in the Run & Remember 5K as a runner, walker, or sponsor, you ensure that Hospice of the Piedmont can continue to provide exceptional hospice and palliative care to all in our community, as well as provide free grief services to anyone in our area who needs it.
