Hospice Waikato Walk/Run

Thursday, March 08, 2018

This past weekend I got the chance to participate in an event that was run by Hospice Waikato/Rainbow Place, to either do a 5K/10K run or walk with registration fees going to the cause. Hospice provides care and comfort to individuals who have a life-limiting illness. Rainbow Place is their child-focused support and care unit.

My wonderful friend Shannon came along with me, and the 5K walk went super quick as we were chatting the whole way, dog-watching and enjoying the scenery. After, we grabbed ourselves a smoothie at Hayes Common which was super close to where the event was held.

It was amazing to see so many families and friend groups participating in the day and even doing the run/walk in remembrance of a loved one. I saw so many people with printed t-shirts and even one guy who was carrying around a photo of his wife that had passed - tear jerker moment.

I love supporting causes like Hospice, who do such amazing and selfless work to help and benefit others
