On Saturday, September 7th, 2019, Halifax Health - Hospice will celebrate the Spirit of Caregiving with the 18th Annual 5K Run and Walk. This much anticipated event raises funds for the Family Caregiver Program. This relief program provides one-on-one care for patients, allowing for intermittent caregiver support.
As the first race in the Daytona Running Series, this event brings out a wonderful mixture of the area's top competitive runners, as well as non-competitive runners and families. While competitive runners will be timed for placing and to receive points in the Daytona Running Series, the event also offers an opportunity for non-competitive runners, walkers, families and children to participate through the 5K walk/run and there will be a Kiddie Fitness Zone for the little ones to check out and play.
This will be the third year as part of the Live Your Life Well Race Series (see below).
Funds raised from the 5K Run & Walk will benefit the Family Caregiver Program which plays an integral role in the health of both the patients and their caregivers. This relief program helps the caregivers so they can better help their loved ones through the end-of-life journey.

We Honor Veterans, a program of the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO) in collaboration with the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), invites hospices, state hospice organizations, Hospice-Veteran Partnerships and VA facilities to join a pioneering program focused on respectful inquiry, compassionate listening and grateful acknowledgment. By recognizing the unique needs of America’s veterans and their families, community providers, in partnership with VA staff, will learn how to accompany and guide them through their life stories toward a more peaceful ending.
We Honor Veterans provides educational tools and resources in advancing these goals:
We Honor Veterans also provides tiered recognition to organizations, known as Partners, that demonstrate a systematic commitment to improving care for veterans. Partner organizations assess their ability to serve veterans and, using resources provided as part of the program, integrate best practices for providing end-of-life care to veterans into their organization.
