Run to Remember is NHF’s athletic fundraising program. RTR provides individuals with an incredibly powerful way to make a distance race a celebration of your loved ones’ memories, while raising money to support hospice.
NHF’s Run to Remember supports BOTH runners and walkers. By utilizing its resources passionate individual hospice supporters, can raise critical dollars for hospice care.
While many other programs raise valuable dollars to find disease cures and to fund research, sometimes cures can no longer help. At such times, those familiar with hospice care know how important quality care can be. It is in support of this care, that our runners and walkers train and participate.
Five key things to know about RTR
There is no one single “Run to Remember.” Participants are free to select any event they want to enter; a hometown race or a race in another city.
Participants can designate a local hospice of their choice to receive 50% of their fundraising proceeds of the funds they raise. NHF receives the other 50% for support of national initiatives that improve hospice care for everyone.
All participants receive a RTR running shirt customized with the name of their loved one(s) on it. Past RTR participants have said this makes their race day extremely special.
It’s any race, AT ANY PACE. Walkers are welcome. Recreational and experienced athletes can all participate. What draws everyone together is a passion for hospice and a commitment to embark on a physical challenge while raising crucial funds. And, if you are new to all of this, NHF’s program provides comprehensive training and fundraising support with your free registration.
Each year, RTR has “spotlight” races which means we recruit teams of runners, have a presence at the race Expo and in some cases (for example Bank of America Chicago Marathon and Marine Corps Marathon) get “charity bibs” reserved for those hard-to-get-into marathons.
