Try as it might, the weather was unable to deter hundreds of people from joining us at Rockland Lake on May 5th for United Hospice's 10th Annual Walk to Remember and the 30th Annual George Wodicka Hook Half Marathon & 5K. Participants walked around the lake in remembrance of their loved ones and gave support to the UH mission of honoring life, giving care, and bringing comfort.
Many thanks to our various sponsors for this year's event. Our Race and Walk sponsors, Coldwell Bankers Residential Brokerage Cares and the Sheldon S. Goldstein Family Foundation. We would also like to thank all of our volunteers for getting to Rockland Lake bright and early on Sunday, and making sure everything went smoothly. From registration to the water stops, the volunteers are what makes days like this even better!
A very special thank you goes out to Charlene Bradin and her supporters at the Birchwood Center for Yoga and Massage for taking home the Avanti Cup for the second year in a row. Charlene and her team raised over $3,000 in donations this year!
Thank you to all those who joined us on May 5th! For pictures of the event, check out our Flickr page.
