2017 5k Walk/Run

Participants walked or ran the 3 mile course that began at the Malone Adult Center (formerly In Motion Physical Therapy), located at 14906 State Route 30 in Malone. The first 100 people to register for the event received a long-sleeve t-shirt. In celebration of National Physical Therapy Month, local Therapists organized the 5k to give back to the community by supporting Hospice of the North Country, an organization that touches many living in the North Country.

All proceeds from this event will be used to benefit those served by Hospice of the North Country. “We appreciate Kathy and the event organizers for volunteering their time and energy in support of our mission,” said Cathlyn Lamitie, Hospice of the North Country Director of Development/Communications. “We understand how fortunate we are to have business owners, organizations, and individuals who believe in the value of hospice care.” There were refreshments, a 50/50 and Taste of Autumn gift raffle following the 5K.

As a non-profit organization, Hospice of the North Country depends on contributions from individuals, families, corporations, and the community. Participation in this event will make a real difference in the lives of the patients and families served by Hospice. Hospice care provides comfort to patients with symptom and pain management
