Haven Hospice has created a unique setting in which you can remember and honor that special family member or friend that was cared for by Haven Hospice or any hospice organization around the country as you participate in the Run for Haven. Create an Honor and Memory board with pictures, favorite sayings, or thoughts about that special person. For a $25 donation, we will mail you an 18 x 24 foam core board to decorate as you wish with photos and thoughts of your special person. Bring it to the Run for Haven event on March 15, drop it off at the designated booth, we’ll add a stand and place it near the Run for Haven finish line where all participants will see it as they pass. You are welcome to take your Honor and Memory board with you after the event. Your family member or friend is only gone when you forget--please let us help you hold on to your memories in this joyously alive and healthful Haven Hospice event. When you are going through the run registration process, there will be an option to select this opportunity. We will mail an Honor and Memory board to you right away!
