Hospice of Chattanooga Foundation to hold virtual fundraiser




Hospice of Chattanooga Foundation will host its first Miles for Memories virtual fundraiser from Oct. 5-31 to celebrate 40 years of nonprofit care. Participants can register at hospiceofchattanooga.org/milesformemories.

Registration costs vary. The participant package includes a toolkit with a downloadable race bib.

“Getting outdoors and moving plays a valuable role in helping people adapt to loss,” says Jasmin Rippon, executive director of Hospice of Chattanooga Foundation. “We hope families and friends will come together to walk, run, bike or swim to help us celebrate our 40th anniversary and honor the memories of those we have lost.”

The virtual event will span the month of October and lead up to National Hospice and Palliative Care Month in November. The event is self-paced, and participants can choose whether they would like to walk, run, bike, hike, swim, or do a mixture of activities. The participant also decides on the location.

Once participants have registered for Miles for Memories, they will create a personal challenge page to log their activity as well as donations from supporters.

For more information, to register or to donate online, visit hospiceofchattanooga.org/milesformemories or contact Susan Day at Susan_Day@HospiceofChattanooga.org or 423 805-7119.

First Horizon, McGriff Insurance Services, Sandler Training and HHM Wealth Advisors are sponsors of Miles for Memories.
