Heroes for Hospice 2021

Heroes for Hospice 5K is a run/walk that raises money for Kansas City Hospice & Palliative Care and MidlandCare of Topeka. H4H is the brainchild of two Kansas City philanthropists. Both have very personal connections with hospice. The pandemic put us off our stride last year, and this year’s event on June 12 comes with hope for a return to more normal life!

H4H is always a fun event. We see so many families gathering together for the music, food, and fun. You’ll see runners and walkers, joined by plenty of strollers, wagons, and wheelchairs! See you in front of REI on the morning of Saturday, June 12!
