Hundreds take part in Steppin' Out for Hospice 5K

August 28, 2014

The Alliance Community Hospital Foundation hosted its annual “Steppin Out for Hospice 5K Run/Walk” on Saturday August 23rd.

 This annual twilight event raises money for the Hospital’s Alliance Visiting Nurse and Hospice program. 600 runners and walkers were on hand to participate in the city’s largest 5K. The event kicked off with a kid’s fun run at 7pm which was won by Cohen Boyce and Elizabeth Mason. The streets were then filled with orange as runners and walkers alike took off at 7:45pm for the 5K.

 The top three male finishers of the 5K were Joel Dagenhardt of Atwater, Zach Bloss of Beloit and Bob Floor of Minerva. In the women’s category Jackie Aegerter of Massillon, Sylvia Cintron of Homeworth and Christina Burkholder of Canton all led the pack.

 “In addition to the 600 runners and walkers we had almost 100 volunteers working behind the scenes to make this event such a success,” stated Race Director Jessica Bloss. “We truly couldn’t have done it without them!”

 Money from the event benefits the Hospice program at Alliance Community Hospital. This team of compassionate caregivers provides comprehensive end of life care for patients which allows them to stay in the comfort of their own home.

 The 2014 5K was made possible through the support of many gracious donors and benefactors. Top sponsors for the evening include Altercare of Alliance Center for Rehabilitation and Cassaday, Turkle, Christian Funeral Home. Other donors included The Alliance Review, Second Sole in Canton, WDJQ/WDPN, AIMM Orthopaedics, GDK & Associates, Huntington Bank, Ermlich Insurance, Dasco Home Medical Equipment, Kiko Auctioneers and Real Estate, McCrea Manor, Richter and Associates, Copleand Oaks, Consumers National Bank, Cope Farm Equipment, Fidelity Properties, Fisher Power and Electric, Paris Israel Church, Tailgaters Sports Bar and Grill and VFW Post 1036.
