In 2012, Team Tri for Hospice set a goal to raise $15,000 for Hospice and Palliative Care of Greensboro; and thanks to our generous sponsors, friends, relatives, neighbors, co-workers and community members we were able to raise just over $34,000!!!!! Our first fund-raising efforts were centered around the national stage of the New York City Inaugural Ironman Championships, in 2013 Team Tri for Hospice focused on engaging our local community and promoted three local events as our HPCG fund-raising initiative. We partnered with the Glow in the Park 5K on May 24th and the Greensboro Youth Triathlon Series’ Try a Tri for Hospice Super Sprint on June 8th; and, finally, Team Tri for Hospice hosted our own event, the Gears and Steers Ride for Hospice on October 27th. In 2014 Team Tri for Hospice will host the Ridgewood Try a Tri for Hospice on Sunday, May 18th and the Second Annual Gears and Steers Ride for Hospice in late October (final date TBA).
While Hospice cares for all who need its assistance, often insurance and Medicaid do not cover all expenses; so Hospice must rely on donations to bridge that gap. I was personally touched by Hospice’s care and compassion three years ago, and my family was fortunate enough to have the resources at hand to supplement Hospice’s care for my brother during his final days. Through these initiatives, we would like to provide assistance to those who don’t have the resources to help their loved ones find this same quality of peace and comfort in their final days.
As we reach out to the community again for support for HPCG, we hope that you will be able to lend your shoulder to the wheel as either a participant or donor; and we thank you for your continued support!
Caring to the finish,
