“The entire CSH team is proud to support Hospice of Wake County and sponsor Step Lively,” said CSH Managing Partner Dan Hartzog. “I do not think the public is aware of all of the outreach and services provided by HOWC. The Step Lively walk is important to raising awareness and funding for the organization, and we at CSH look forward to walking together as a team to show our support.”
Since Step Lively’s beginning in 2010, more than $114,000 has been raised from this event alone. The proceeds from the walk go to benefit the Hospice of Wake County Benevolent Care Program as well as the Horizons Grief Center. Last year, 320 participants signed up for Step Lively, 47 of whom were CSH team members. The 2011 walk raised more than $49,000.
“Cranfill Sumner & Hartzog has been a supporter and sponsor of the Step Lively Walk for Hospice from the very beginning,” said John Thoma, CEO of Hospice of Wake County. “Each year during National Hospice Month CSH generously ‘steps up’ to sponsor a walk that brings hospice friends and families together to honor the memory of loved ones who have journeyed before us, to walk with those who are struggling today with advanced illness, and to create a compassionate path for the future.”
Step Lively is a 5K noncompetitive walk that will take place at the WakeMed Soccer Park in Cary on Saturday, Nov. 17 from 8 A.M. until noon. If you would like more information about Step Lively or registering to participate in the walk, visit their website at http://support.hospiceofwake.org.
