MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (SLOAN) – Alive Hospice held its first Hike for Hospice event this past Saturday in Murfreesboro.

More than 100 Rutherford County turned out for the walk to show their support and remember someone they love. Alive Hospice CEO Anna Gene O’Neal was among them.

“I actually joined the organization after my two best friends died from breast cancer,” O’Neal said.  “Both received hospice care services and then subsequent to that my mom and my mother in law have all received services from Alive, and so, firsthand I know the impact that this organization can make on families.”

The walk was held to raise community awareness about hospice services and to raise money for the construction of the organizations new free standing hospice facility in Murfreesboro.

Alive Hospice says it needs some $300,000 to complete the facility, slated to open in May of 2017.

Their next event is Bluebird at the Boro in February. You can learn more at AliveHospice.org.
