Benefiting Center for Hospice Care

Presented by:

Registration for Walk for Hospice 2018 is closed, and there is no same-day registration.

We look forward to seeing you next year!

Center for Hospice Care and the Hospice Foundation are thrilled to announce that the 33rd Annual Walk for Hospice is on for Sunday, September 23!

As in year’s past, the walk will start and finish at Center for Hospice Care’s Mishawaka Campus, which is next to beautiful Central Park, along the scenic St. Joseph River.

We are holding this event to raise money to support the mission of Center for Hospice Care, and to give those in our community a chance to honor their loved ones.

Remember, every dollar we raise helps improve the quality of living in our community!


Thank you to our sponsors!

  • Fundraising – To support our mission of providing compassionate care to all eligible patients, regardless of their ability to pay, this year’s participants will have the opportunity to raise additional money for Center for Hospice Care.
