Care Dimensions is revamping the format of its 33rd Annual Walk for Hospice to ensure the safety of walkers and the community. This year, the walk will take place virtually. They encourage individuals and teams to walk when and where they feel comfortable by September 27, while raising awareness and funds for this important cause.
Walk proceeds benefit the 2,000 patients that Care Dimensions care for every day, allowing them to provide exceptional care and innovative services.
Care Dimensions is planning a virtual celebration to share all that walkers have accomplished on the morning of Sunday, September 27. More details will become available once finalized.
