Calling all runners and walkers!

Each year VNA & Blue Water Hospice hosts the River Run in Marysville Park. Funds raised benefit charity care at the agency, ensuring all patients receive care, regardless of their financial standing.

The first run was held in 1985 and since has become one of the premiere runs in the Blue Water Area! More than 400 runners and walkers participate each year. The River Run is held the first Saturday in June.

“This is our largest fundraiser for VNA and Blue Water Hospice, and we rely on the support of our very generous community. We raise funds and have fun at the River Run” says Angela DeLaere, President & CEO, VNA & Blue Water Hospice.
